Chapman longtime relationship therapist and former WHUR radio host said often time people bond while grieving together, so the budding relationship between Hunter and Hallie is not that unusual.

While Hunter and Kathleen Biden have three daughters, Hallie Biden has two children with Beau Biden, who was the Delaware Attorney General from 2007 to 2015.

Hallie was devastated when her husband, Beau, died after suffering from brain cancer in May 2015.

In a statement to the Post, Hunter Biden said the pair was "incredibly lucky" to have found love and support from one another during a hard time. "We've been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way", they said in the statement.

Joe Biden has publicly voiced the support of himself and his wife Dr. Jill Biden.

"They have mine and (former Second Lady) Jill's full and complete support and we are happy for them".

Hallie had two children with Beau, a girl named Natalie and a boy named Hunter.

Then-toddlers Hunter and Beau were injured in the crash.

Biden confirmed a report in the New York Post that Hallie Biden and Hunter Biden began dating after Hunter separated from his wife.

Hunter and Kathleen reportedly separated five months after Beau's death.

Kathleen Biden has filed for divorce from her husband of more than 20 years, Hunter, according to Washington, D.C. Superior Court records. He said it was not his account on the dating site for affairs, and accused someone else of using his name.

In December of the previous year, Joe Biden jokingly declared his presidential bid.

Beau Biden was the DE attorney-general and an Iraq war veteran and was tipped to follow his father's footsteps into higher office.

Beau Biden died of brain cancer in May 2015.

Beau Biden's death devastated the Biden family and the pain, Joe Biden has said, made it near impossible for him to run for president in 2016.

While still technically married to his estranged wife Kathleen, Hunter opened up to Page Six about the couple's relationship. Beau was just two when his mother Neilia was killed in an auto crash in 1972 that also took the life of the Vice President's one-year-old daughter. Joe remarried five years later with Dr. Jill Biden in NY; their daughter Ashley was born in 1981.
