Joe Biden has recently beaten mogul Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential Elections, but more than the future President of the United States he is a family man.
Although a great majority of his days are focused on politics, his family is the most important aspect of the 77-year-old's life. Sadly, he has already suffered quite a few heartbreaking losses throughout the years.
Biden is the father of Naomi Biden, Beau Biden and Hunter Biden, with whom he shared with late wife Neilia Hunter, who tragically passed away in 1972 following a violent car crash.
The President-elect is also a father to Ashley Biden, the fruit of his relationship with Jill Biden, his current wife, who will soon be replacing Melania Trump as the First Lady.
As aforementioned, Biden lost his first wife in a car crash in Hockessin, Delaware, but Naomi, who was only one-year-old at the time of the incident, also perished.
Beau and Hunter were inside the vehicle at the time and were rushed to Wilmington General Hospital where they managed to survive with serious injuries.
Biden also went through a lot of grief when it comes to his son Hunter, who has struggled with addiction
Beau was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013 and immediately underwent treatment at MD Anderson, where he was given a clean bill of health just three months later.
Despite the good news, Beau's life was cut short by the disease in 2015. Earlier this year, Jill opened up about the 46-year-old's death and how it affected them:
"After our son, Beau, died of cancer, I wondered if I would ever smile or feel joy again. It was summer, but there was no warmth left for me."
According to Jill,who has been married to Biden for 43 years, her husband dealt with the loss of his first child in his own way, and went back to work just four days later:
"I saw him steel himself in the mirror, take a breath, put his shoulders back, and walk out into a world empty of our son. He went back to work. That's just who he is."
Biden also went through a lot of grief when it comes to his son Hunter, who has struggled with addiction for quite some time, but never stopped supporting and having faith in him.
During an interview with Chris Cuomo last year, the President-elect claimed that Hunter could beat his demons and even considered him the "most honorable, decent person" he knows.
