Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is reported to have begun dating his deceased other son’s widow.

Hunter Biden, 47 years old, has begun a relationship with the widow of his Beau Biden, who used to be the Delaware Attorney General.

Beau passed away in 2015 after battling brain cancer.

Relationship and Announcement

Hunter Biden is a lawyer, and told news outlets that he started dating Hallie when he split from his former wife, Kathleen, despite the fact that they are legally married with three children: Naomi, Maisy and Finnegan.

“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most. We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way,” said Hunter in a recent statement.

Parents Response

Reported by PEOPLE magazine, Hunter’s father and mother Dr. Jill Biden gave the new couple their blessings.

“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them,” said Joe Biden, in a statement.

Beau died around two years back, leaving behind his two children with wife Hallie: Natalie and Hunter. Beau also served a term in Iraq in Delaware’s  National Guard, and had served as Delaware’s  attorney general from the years 2007 – 2015.

“Beau Biden was, quite simply, the finest man any of us have ever known,” said his father in a statement when he passed.

The then-VP mentioned that Beau’s death had been a huge reason for him to decide against running for president in 2016.
