White House AGAIN Refuses to Recognize Biden’s Seventh Grandchild: Karine Jean-Pierre Closes Question on Hunter’s Four-Year-Old Daughter After He Settled Down With Baby’s Mom And Accepted Relationship With Girl
- Karine Jean-Pierre closed a question about Hunter Biden’s estranged son
- Hunter settled a child support dispute last week with mother Lunden Roberts
- He agreed to play a role in the life of four-year-old Navy Joan.
Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre closed a question Wednesday about whether President Joe Biden would now recognize four-year-old Navy Joan as his granddaughter after her son Hunter Biden settled their child support dispute.
DailyMail.com reported on Friday that Hunter and Lunden Roberts, 32, have reached an agreement on child support after the first son said he would play a role in his daughter’s life outside of wedlock.
That could open the door to meet your grandfather, if the president so wished.
“I have nothing to share from here,” Jean-Pierre said at Wednesday’s briefing, quickly moving on to the next reporter.
The preschooler never knew Hunter and the Biden family has refused to count her as part of the family, with only six stockings representing the grandchildren hanging in the White House at Christmas.

None of the Bidens have met four-year-old Navy Joan, including (from left) President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Hunter Biden and baby Beau Biden, who were pictured together at a Fourth of July celebration Tuesday.
The New York Times reported Friday that attendees have been told the Bidens have six grandchildren, not seven, during strategy sessions.
The blonde-haired girl was conceived around December 2017 while Hunter was still in a relationship with his brother Beau’s widow, Hallie.
In his 2021 memoir Beautiful Things, Hunter, who was a crack addict at the time and spiraling, said he did not remember it happening.
“I didn’t remember our meeting,” Hunter wrote. That little connection he had with anyone. It was a disaster, but a disaster for which I have taken responsibility.
It was initially reported that the pair met while Roberts was working as a pole dancer at Hunter’s favorite DC strip club.
But text messages recovered from her abandoned laptop showed that she was, in fact, on the payroll of his investment firm, Rosemont Seneca.
As DailyMail.com revealed, Hunter initially vowed to support Roberts “emotionally, physically and financially.”
Instead, he cruelly ‘ghosted’ her, ignoring her texts and calls, and refusing to acknowledge that Navy Joan was his until Roberts sued for child support in 2019 and a court-ordered DNA test proved his claims.
In the ensuing litigation, Hunter claimed he was “unemployed and had no monthly income” despite living in a Hollywood rental of $12,000 per month and driving a Porsche.
But when ordered to produce his financial records, he repeatedly failed to do so before reaching a settlement in 2019 that has seen him pay Roberts more than $750,000 to date.
Despite already facing federal and congressional investigations into his financial affairs, Hunter unexpectedly reopened the case last September, claiming he had suffered “a substantial material change” in his income.
Roberts refused to budge and upped the ante by asking the court to officially change his daughter Navy Joan Biden’s name to “benefit from carrying the Biden family name.”
Once again, his lawyers have demanded that Hunter hand over every detail of his finances, from his shady deals in Ukraine and China to the names of mysterious art lovers who have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for his beginner paintings.
However, this week’s agreement ends the proceedings without the need for a trial in July.
Lawyers for Roberts and Hunter, whose expensive legal group includes Abbe Lowell, who is said to charge as much as $855 an hour, declined to comment.
