It’s reportedly all in the family in the Biden household — and former Vice President Joe Biden is apparently OK with that.
New York Post’s Page Six reported this week that Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, has shifted her affections to Beau’s married but separated younger brother Hunter Biden.

The entire Biden family was devastated when Beau died of brain cancer in May of 2015. But his widow has apparently gotten past all that. The Post reported:
The astonishing family drama caps a difficult period for the Bidens following the death of Beau at age 46. The former vice president cited the death of his elder son as one of the reasons he decided in October 2015 against running for president.
Both Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have bestowed their blessings on the couple, according to the former vice president when he confirmed the relationship to Page Six.
“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness,” he told the publication. “They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
Hunter Biden, 47, who is separated from his wife Kathleen, also confirmed the relationship.
“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. We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”
Hunter and his estranged wife, who reportedly separated in October of 2015, have three daughters — Naomi, Finnegan and Maisy. Beau, who was Delaware’s attorney general, fathered two children — Natalie and, confusingly, Hunter — with his then-wife Hallie.
Reaction on social media was mixed, with some believing it tawdry.

@PageSix Gross. Kids on that family “so, wait, my Aunt is now my stepmom? My cousins are now my stepbrothers/sisters?” I’m sure Beau is :(.

The majority, however, were OK with it.

@PageSix I feel guilty even reading this. Just absolutely 100% none of our business.

One person finally made this observation:
@jswang3 Strange, but she probably sees a lot of her husband in him.
