Naomi Biden, the 24-year-old granddaughter of former Vice President Joe Biden, became known to internet audiences over the weekend, when President Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, posted Instagram stories of the pair hanging out together in the Hamptons. What do we know about Naomi Biden?

2. She’s named for Joe Biden’s late daughter
Joe Biden has often spoken about the car accident that killed his first wife, Neilia, and 13-month-old daughter, Naomi, in 1972, just one month after he was first elected to Congress. Naomi Biden is her named for Joe’s late daughter.
3. Her dad is now dating her aunt
In March 2017, Hunter Biden announced that he was dating his late brother’s widow. He said in a statement: “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.

5. They seem to be friends, but details are scarce
