In Kathleen’s book, she explained how she felt after finding out about her husband’s affair with his late brother’s widow.
I felt a strange vindication. Not only had I not been crazy, but it was so much worse than I could have imagined. I was shocked, but not heartbroken. Heartbreak had already flattened my self-esteem that past year.

According to Hunter, his father found out about the relationship when the New York Post called his office for comment.

Lunden Alexis Roberts is popularly known as the mother of Hunter Biden’s four-year-old daughter Noah Roberts Biden. She is also reported to be a stripper at the Mpire Club in Washington DC, United States. She was born on March 5, 1991. She is 32 years old as of June 2023.
Hunter and Lunden Alexis first met when he first visited the club where Lunden worked.

Initially, Hunter Biden denied paternity of the child but a DNA test eventually confirmed paternity.
The lawsuit was later settled in March 2020 after Biden agreed to pay Roberts a monthly amount of child support and health insurance premiums, as well as other costs. In January 2023, Hunter Biden asked a judge to deny his daughter from taking his surname with claims that it would rob the child of a “peaceful existence” due to the criticism he has endured over time.
On the other hand, Lunden claimed the change of surname would not benefit her daughter. She also claimed that the “Biden” name will open opportunities for Noah Roberts just like it has for other members of the Biden family.

He has three daughters (Naomi, Finnegan and Maisy Biden) with his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle; another daughter (Noah Roberts Biden) with his “side chic” Lunden Alexis Roberts and a boy (Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden IV) with his second wife Melissa Cohen.
