How many children and grandchildren does Joe Biden have?

DEMOCRATIC presidential nominee Joe Biden has four children from two relationships, and seven grandchildren as a result.

Two of Joe's children, Naomi and Beau from his first marriage, have tragically passed away.

Who are Joe Biden's children?

Joe Biden had four children total, although only two are alive.

Joe had three children: Hunter, Beau and Naomi with his first wife Neilia Hunter.

The couple married in August of 1966 and moved to Wilmington, Delaware, where Biden was on the New Castle County Council.

Neilia and their daughter Naomi passed away in 1972 after being involved in a car crash. Their sons Beau and Hunter were critically injured but survived. 

Joe eventually remarried Jill Jacobs in 1977 and had one daughter, Ashley, in 1981.

Jill became Beau and Hunter’s stepmother and helped raise them upon her marriage to Biden. 

Beau tragically passed away at the age of 46.


Biden's only surviving son from his first marriage is Hunter Biden.

Hunter graduated from Yale University and currently serves as a lawyer and investment adviser.

The 50-year-old has come under scrutiny after a range of controversies have recently come to light.

Notably, the former VP's son has been accused of serving the "strategic interests" of China's government and military while he served as a board member of Beijing-based investment firm BHR Partners.

Hunter also served on the board of Ukrainian gas giant Burisma between 2014 and 2019.

The job paid him up to $50,000 a month, according to reporting by Bloomberg News.

President Trump has repeatedly alleged corruption on Hunter's part during his time at the firm, though has offered no evidence of wrongdoing.

In July 2020, Hunter reportedly settled a $450,000 tax debt from the District of Columbia for unpaid state income taxes.

And in March 2020, he again made headlines after missing a child support deadline regarding a child who the court ruled was his.


Born as Joseph R Biden III on February 3, 1969, Beau Biden was the eldest of Joe Biden and his first wife Neilia's three children.

He served as Delaware’s Attorney General from 20017-2015.

He nearly followed his father's footsteps in 2010 when he mulled over a run for the US Senate, but was sidelined by a mild stroke.

Beau died of brain cancer at the age of 46 on May 30, 2015.

Months after announcing his bid for president, the Democratic nominee opened up about his son, who he said "should be the one running for president, not me."


Joe's first wife Neilia was on her way to buy a Christmas tree 48 years ago with her children, Naomi, Beau, and Hunter when they were involved in a car accident. 

Her car was struck by a truck, killing Neilia and 13-month-old Naomi. 


Ashley is the only daughter of Jill and Joe Biden.

She is Joe's youngest child, and lives a life out of the spotlight.

She married Dr. Howard Krein in 2012.

Ashley started her career as a social worker/career development and education liaison, but later went into social justice advocacy.

She was named executive director of the Delaware Center for Justice in 2014, which focuses on criminal justice reform.

"My dad always taught me that silence is complicity and that I must stand up for anyone who was being treated unfairly. That has stayed with me through adulthood, and is the guiding principle in my professional life," she explained to Delaware Today.

Who are Joe Biden's grandchildren?

Joe and his current wife Jill have seven grandchildren total.

His oldest son Hunter is married to South African filmmaker Melissa Cohen, 32.

The pair wed in May 2019 and their son was born the following year in March 2020.

It is Hunter's second wife after his marriage to Kathleen Buhle in 1993.

He shares three children – Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy – with Kathleen.

The couple separated in 2015 and divorced in 2017.

Hallie Biden married Beau Biden in 2002 and stayed with him until he died in 2015. 

The pair had two children together: Natalie and Robert "Hunter" II.

Hunter and Hallie, who are siblings-in-law, were romantically linked from 2016 until 2018.


Naomi is the 26-year-old daughter of Hunter and his first wife and Kathleen Biden.

She was named after the former VP's daughter who passed away.

Naomi recently graduated from Columbia law school. Before then, she was a student at the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 2016, along with Tiffany Trump.

She recently heartfeltly tweeted “I am proud to be your granddaughter every single day” to the Democratic presidential nominee.


Finnegan is the younger sister of Naomi Biden, and is Hunter and Kathleen's second child.

She was named after Joe Biden’s mother, Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Finnegan Biden.


Maisy is the youngest of Hunter and Kathleen Biden’s children.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Maisy is close to Barack Obama's daughter Sasha, whom she went to school with and played on the same basketball team.

"Her best friend is Sasha Obama," Joe confirmed.

He claimed the Obama's and Biden's had a "whole get together" for the pair's high school graduation.


Natalie is the 16-year-old daughter of Joe's late son Beau.

Natalie and cousin Naomi recently opened up about their grandmother Jill Biden at the Democratic National Convention.

“I would say she’s not your average grandmother,” Naomi claimed.

"She's a prankster, she's very mischievous." Natalie added, “We have a lot of stories.”

Robert "Hunter" II

Beau and wife Hallie's second child, Robert "Hunter" II, was named after his uncle.

Born in 2006, he recently joined sister Natalie and his cousins in reciting the pledge of allegiance at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Baby Biden 2018

In August 2018, Hunter fathered a child with Lunden Roberts, who is said to have been a stripper at a club he often visited in Washington, DC.

Their baby was born in August of that year.

Hunter had first denied that the child Roberts was bearing was his and agreed to a paternity test to confirm the baby’s DNA.

The court ruled that the test established Hunter’s paternity with “scientific certainty," determining that Hunter did father the child while he was dating Hallie.

Baby Biden 2020

Hunter married Melissa Cohen in 2019 six days after they met. They welcomed a child together in March 2020.
