The widow of Joe Biden’s late son Beau Biden has started a romantic relationship with Beau’s brother Hunter Biden, according to reports.

Widow Hallie Biden was left devastated when her husband lost his battle to brain cancer in May 2015.

However, the New York Post has reported that she is now in a couple with her former brother-in-law, Hunter (47).

Their new relationship, which comes after Hunter separated from his wife Kathleen, has been welcomed by Joe Biden and his wife.

In a statement to the paper the former Vice President said the family are happy for them.

“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," he said.

Hunter has also spoken out about the relationship saying:

“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.”
