Hunter Biden Says He Got Married 6 Days After Meeting New Wife

Former Vice President Joe Bidens son, Hunter Biden, said he recently married a woman 16 years younger than him just six days after meeting her.

Biden, 49, spoke to ABC this week in his first interview since President Donald Trump began publicly calling out the Bidens business dealings in Ukraine and China several years ago.

Hunter Biden defended his work in the countries, changing at least one answer from an interview earlier this year.

He also told the broadcaster that he has a new wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, 33, a South African native who recently became a naturalized United States citizen.

Biden said a friend of Cohens wrote Cohens phone number on Bidens hand and urged him to call her. A few days after they met, Biden went to get a “shalom” tattoo that matches Cohens and several days after that, they were married.

“I instantly fell in love with her. And then Ive fallen in love with her more every day,” Biden told ABC in a portion of the interview that was published on Oct. 17.

The couple called Joe Biden, who thanked Cohen for “giving my son the courage to love again.”

Hunter Biden has three children from his first marriage. Biden divorced Kathleen Biden in 2017 after more than 20 years of marriage. He later became romantically involved with Hallie Biden, his brother Beaus widow, before splitting with her.

Biden said that Trumps assertions that hes “hiding” arent true.

“No, not at all,” he said. “Im actually having an incredible extended honeymoon with my beautiful bride.”

He said his life is relatively normal.

“I talk to my dad every day. I live my life in the open,” Biden said. “I get in my car in the morning and I go down the road and I get coffee. And I go to the same place for lunch with Melissa. And I go about doing my business and my work, and I come back at night. And we watch—you know, Netflix, and then we do it all again in the morning, just like anybody else.”
