America The New US First Lady: Who Is Jill Biden?

Met on a blind date

Jill met her husband, who was already a senator at the time, on a 1975 blind date organized by Joe's brother Frank. He was 33, a widower and father of two, she was 24 and newly separated.

It sparked immediately and they have both been married since 1977, but it took Joe five attempts before Jill finally said "yes". She told Vogue magazine. The then only 26-year-old had already had a short-term marriage with a college sweetheart and, as the future stepmother of two boys, wanted to make sure that the marriage would last.

It has been doing that - for more than 40 years. In 1981 their daughter Ashley was born. The former lawyer and the teacher now have seven grandchildren.

Joe Biden met his second wife three years after a bad stroke of fate. His first wife, Neilia, and their only one-year-old daughter, Naomi, were killed in a car accident just before Christmas 1972. His two sons, Beau and Hunter, only 2 and 3 years old, were seriously injured. Joe Biden took the oath of amst as senator at his children's sickbed.

It is planned that Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America on January 20, 2021. Then the 78-year-old and his first lady Jill will move into the White House in Washington.
