Even though former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has left the White House, his name is still making headlines. In the past 24 hours, media outlets across America were shocked to learn that his son is in a romantic relationship with the widow of Beau Biden, the former vice president’s son who died in 2015. Hunter Biden confirmed that he is in a relationship with Hallie Biden yesterday.  

“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time,” stated Biden’s youngest son. “We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”

Hunter and Kathleen Biden have three children. A Biden family associate stated that the two are no longer together. Hallie Biden has two children from Hunter’s older brother.

The former vice president issued a statement to the media clarifying that he and his wife gave their blessing to Hunter and Hallie.
