Former US Vice President Joe Biden reportedly gives his blessing to his son who is dating the widow of his other son, the late Beau Biden. Hallie Biden and Hunter Biden started dating in 2015 after the latter separated from his wife, Kathleen.

Biden said Hallie and Hunter have his full support and is happy for them. Even his wife, Jill, does not condemn their son’s relationship.

“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,” the former VP said in an official statement.

Hunter has also released his own statement about the issue. He said he and Hallie were "incredibly lucky'' to have found love from one another during a tough time.

“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,” Hunter said in a statement to the New York Post. He and Hallie feel so lucky for their friends and family members who have supported them in every step.

Meanwhile, Kathleen reportedly confirmed that she and Hunter have separated. In a court document obtained by Extra, Kathleen claimed that “his spending rarely relates to legitimate family expenses, but focuses on his own travel, gifts for other women, alcohol, strip clubs, or other personal indulgences.”

Kathleen and Hunter have one minor child. She is allegedly requesting sole physical and legal custody, while Hunter wants joint physical and legal custody for the kid.

Radar reports that it did an attempt to contact one of Kathleen’s family members for a statement. John Buhle, her brother, reportedly just laughed at the request. “I’m sorry I don’t have [a comment]. Thanks for calling!” he replied.

Beau Biden, the former Delaware attorney general, lost his battle against brain cancer in May 2015. The former vice president admitted that the death of his son has ruined the thought of running for president in 2016.

Biden pointed out that no one should run for presidency unless he will be able to pour in his whole heart and soul and passion. “Beau was my soul. I just wasn’t ready to be able to do that. My one regret is my Beau’s not here. I don’t have any other regrets,” he told ABC News last year.
