There were several young faces on the US Capitol platform where Biden and Harris took their respective oaths of office, and later accompanied them as they walked onto the White House grounds — the children of the new first and second families.
Biden and Harris were flanked by their large families Wednesday for much of the day, and the President’s family will have a presence inside the Oval Office — a table behind the Resolute Desk was filled with photos of Biden’s adult children and grandchildren, including a prominent photo showing a much younger Biden holding his son Beau, who died in 2015 at the age of 46.
This is who’s who among Biden’s grandchildren and Harris’ stepchildren, niece and great-nieces:
Finnegan Biden, a student at the University of Pennsylvania, often joined her grandfather on the campaign trail, particularly during the primaries. She was named after the President’s mother.
Naomi and Finnegan’s younger sister, Maisy Biden, 20, is fairly active on the social media app TikTok. As the President has shared, she is good friends with former President Barack Obama’s daughter Sasha, who is the same age.
Robert Hunter Biden
Beau Biden, the son of Hunter and his second wife, Melissa Cohen, was born in early spring 2020. He is named after Biden’s late son.
