THE LOVE KEEPS FLOWING

Michelle also took to Instagram previously to share how proud she is of Jill's 2019 memoir, "Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself." She wrote that her friend is a true inspiration.

The support didn't stop when both women were the White House's Annual Mother's Day tea hosts. Once again, Michelle lifted her friend up, complimenting her on her ability to juggle so many duties and responsibilities.

ROMANCE IN THE WHITE HOUSE

Of course, everybody knows that Jill's closest relationship is probably with her husband, Joe Biden. For her birthday, it was reported that the two were to spend a relaxing day near the beach, a spokesman stating:

"She'll be in Rehoboth having a quiet day with the president."

The US President himself constantly praises his wife. Expressing pride, he commended her on her teaching skills, Jill describing herself on her Instagram bio as a "Lifelong educator."

Jill is not Joe's first wife. His previous spouse Neilia Hunter died following a car crash in 1972, having given birth to three of Joe's children, Naomi, Beau, and Hunter when still alive.

Naomi, at one year old, passed together with her mother in the tragic incident in Hockessin, Delaware. Since then, Jill has given birth to Joe's fourth child Ashley.
