We all want to find love, but for most of us, it’s not usually found in the widow of a sibling.
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s family is making headlines this morning after a secret kindred relationship was unveiled.
It’s been confirmed that Biden’s son, Hunter, is dating the widow of his late brother, Beau. Widow Hallie Biden and Hunter started a romantic bond following the passing of Delaware’s former attorney general, who died of brain cancer in May 2015.
In a statement to Page Six, Hunter, who is separated from his wife, Kathleen, explained, “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.”
Meanwhile, Joe and wife Dr. Jill have given the duo their blessing. “We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness,” Biden apparently said. “They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
The entire relationship is nothing short of bizarre — And can we please discuss the new complicated family dynamic?
Hallie has two young children with her late spouse and Hunter has three with his now estranged wife. The Biden cousins are essentially on track to be step-siblings — assuming the relationship advances to marriage.
Folks on social media are equally perplexed by the new controversial relationship, many calling the courtship “weird.”
