Being the leader of the free world is a busy gig. But President Joe Biden has made it very clear that he always has time for his family. While Biden's four children are in the public eye a fair amount, Joe also has seven grandchildren ranging in age from toddlers to 29-year-old Naomi. But they aren't really in the spotlight as much.
That being said, you might already know Naomi from the buzz surrounding her beautiful wedding at The White House in November 2022. Her nuptials to husband Peter Neal were the first to take place in the historic spot since 2008, and the photos were nothing short of stunning. Naomi often updates her followers on her relationship with the President, and it seems most of Biden’s other grandchildren are just as close with him.
Joe previously revealed on Twitter that he has a strict rule with his phone: No matter what's going on in his life, he'll always take a call from his grandkids. Case in point: A video he shared where he's chatting with one of his grandkids and asking if they got a picture of his dogs.
“They said they miss you,” he said, before adding, “I miss you too, angel.” Aww.

An insider told CNN that the President checks up on his grandkids several times a week—and they've made it clear that there's a mutual lovefest going on with the man they call “Pop."
“Anyone who wants to get to @JoeBiden will have to get past us first,” his oldest granddaughter Naomi Biden tweeted of herself, her sisters, and cousins, in October 2020.
Anyone who wants to get to @JoeBiden, will have to get past us first 💪⚡️👊😜

Beyond that, she sweetly posted a snap of her grandfather wearing a tan hat on the way to Camp David that had “Pop” written on the back, “just to make sure the job title doesn’t get to his head,” she jokingly wrote in the caption.

But who exactly are Joe Biden's grandchildren? Here's a rundown of the whole crew.
Naomi, 29, may be the most prominent of Biden’s seven grandkids. She's named after her late aunt and is Hunter’s oldest child. Naomi works as an associate at Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C., The Washingtonian reported. She graduated from Columbia Law School in 2020 and has her undergraduate degree in international relations from the University of Pennsylvania. Naomi joined her grandfather on multiple trips while he was VP.
In November, Naomi celebrated her wedding at her grandfather’s home, the White House. Her marriage to Peter Neal took place on on the South Lawn. Naomi’s wedding was one of just 19 to ever take place at the historic location, according to The White House website.

"Peter and I are endlessly grateful to my Nana and Pop for the opportunity to celebrate our wedding at the White House," she wrote on Twitter in April 2022, in a tweet that is still pinned on her profile. "We can't wait to make our commitment to one another official and for what lies ahead."
Sooo not sure how best to update but was supposed to do so weeks ago…but we have finally figured out where the ceremony will be…and much to the relief of secret service and with the dogs’ endorsement…we’ll be getting married on the South Lawn! Couldn’t be more excited pic.twitter.com/CHfvmJ9ZHL

Fun fact about the newlyweds: Naomi and Peter Neal created MyCaresActBenefits.com, an online tool to help people check CARES Act benefits eligibility. “It was a very intimidating prospect to figure out how to create a website, and how to do the quiz and code the calculator,” Naomi told MTV News.The couple also, reportedly, lived on the third floor of The White House before their wedding, according to PEOPLE. There's no word on whether they're still living there now.
Naomi's Twitter is full of sweet mentions of her grandfather. She wrote: “I am proud to be your granddaughter every single day @JoeBiden. But tonight, I am just as proud to be an American.”

After Biden accepted the Democratic nomination for president, Naomi tweeted that she and her cousins gave their grandfather some ice cream. “Pop, tonight you eat from the box,” they wrote in a cute handwritten note.

And, in 2021, in honor of Presidents’ Day, President Biden’s grandchildren presented him with a leather jacket embroidered with “Air Force One” and a tan baseball cap with the presidential seal in navy blue. “POP” is embroidered on the back, so he never forgets his grandkids wherever he goes.
“We bought him some swag since it’s Presidents’ Day weekend and he’s 'literally' President,” Naomi tweeted.

Finnegan, 23, is Naomi's younger sister. She was named after Joe Biden’s mother, Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Finnegan Biden, according to USA Today. Finnegan was also on the campaign trail, and even appeared in a campaign video for her grandfather, alongside Naomi and several other cousins.
She keeps a fairly low profile and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2021. She was active in school politics in high school and in college.
BTW, in the spring of 2020, Finnegan successfully petitioned Penn's administration to extend pass/fail grading options, per The Daily Pennsylvanian.
Maisy, 21, is the youngest of Hunter and Kathleen’s children. Fun fact about Maisy: She’s tight with Sasha Obama, according to the Chicago Tribune. The friends went to the same school and even played basketball together with former President Barack Obama (!!) as their coach. Her grandfather told The Hill in one interview that the two are "best friends." Biden also rarely missed her games, per Today. Obama also claimed that Maisy was “the LeBron of the league.”
Maisy also goes to UPenn, and she posts a lot of irreverent TikToks.
Maisy and the other granddaughters encouraged Biden to enter the presidential race. "We just knew he had to run, and we weren't going to take no for an answer," they told told PBS NewsHour.

Natalie, 18, is the teenage daughter of the late Beau Biden and his wife, Hallie. The high school senior appeared in a video back in 2020 for the Democratic National Convention and had this to say about her grandma, Jill: "She’s not your average grandmother. She's a prankster, she's very mischievous."
Natalie also voted for the first time alongside her grandfather during the midterms, per Insider. She also has no public social media presence, according to Town & Country.
Robert Hunter Biden II
Robert, 16, is beau's other child and Natalie's younger brother, and he hasn’t been in the public eye as much as his older cousins. But he did join them in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the 2020 Democratic National Convention:

The 16-year-old is also very religious. He’s Catholic and celebrated his confirmation in April 2021 with his family. “My religion, for me, is a safe place. I never miss Mass, because I can be alone. I'm with my family but just kind of absorbing the fundamental principle that you've got to treat everyone with dignity,” he told PEOPLE.
Navy Joan Roberts
Hunter has another child (whose identity had been kept anonymous until the Daily Mail revealed it in November 2020) with a woman in Arkansas, Lunden Alexis Roberts. The child was born in August 2018. The paternity of that child was the subject of a now-resolved 2018 court case determining Hunter was the father, according to the Texarkana Gazette.
Hunter Biden is currently attempting to prevent Navy Joan from adopting the Biden surname after Lunden Roberts said it would be “beneficial” for Navy Joan later in life, according to The Independent. “The name is now synonymous with being well-educated, financially acute and politically powerful,” Lunden Roberts reportedly said. No decision has been made regarding the case, but a hearing will take place on February 22, 2023.
Hunter welcomed another baby on March 28, 2020, with his new wife, Melissa Cohen. The baby is a "beautiful and healthy baby boy," according to Page Six. The youngest Biden was named after Hunter's late brother and his name was confirmed on Inauguration Day 2021, per People.
He's also got some pretty doting older sisters, as Naomi and Maisy have called their half-brother the "love of my life," per Insider.
