Who is Joe Biden's grandchild Navy Roberts? Here's the toddler whom Hunter fathered with a stripper and ‘denied’
'The child is going to get nothing more, Joe does not recognize her as his blood. Neither does Hunter, despite the DNA result,' said investigator Casey
When Joe Biden was declared the President-elect on November 7, he invited on stage his family that included six of his grandchildren. However, among those missing from America’s next First family was the two-year-old estranged daughter of Hunter Biden whom he reportedly fathered with stripper Lunden Roberts but never acknowledged as his blood.
The Daily Mail has shed some light on Hunter’s estranged child named Navy Joan Roberts who is living in rural Arkansas but is kept away from the Bidens. The reports says the girl is being raised in utmost secrecy with her mother's family. Until now the toddler was never discussed much in public, however, the Daily Mail has revealed that the Navy’s aunt posted a rare photo of her on Facebook in August this year.
Who is Joe Biden's seventh grandchild?
Navy Joan Roberts was born after a brief fling between Hunter and Lunden who met at the Mpire Club, a strip joint in Washington, DC, in late 2017. As per reports, Lunden got pregnant around the time Hunter had broken up with former sister-in-law Hallie Biden, who had been married to his late brother Beau Biden.
Lunden gave birth to Navy in August of 2018. At the time of birth, Hunter had denied that Navy was his child. However, after a DNA test, it was confirmed that he is the father of Navy. As per the Daily Mail Hunter has never met the child, never seen her photo, and “could not identify the child out of a photo lineup”, as mentioned in court filings by Roberts.
Lunden later filed for child support after giving birth to Navy. Court papers accessed by The Sun revealed that Hunter was paying an undisclosed sum in monthly child support and health insurance after courts ruled that he has to pay for it. The Daily Mail reported that child support amounted to be purportedly around $2.5 million.
In 2018 the child’s identity was concealed and she was named as “Baby Doe” out of privacy. Lunden Roberts’ lawyer told the Daily Mail about the child’s upbringing, “I can confirm that Ms Roberts is well and that the child is healthy, adorable, loved, safe - and very happy.”
A private investigator who claimed to have known about the Hunter-Roberts court settlement said it contained no promises about extra security, nor any promises of further engagement between Navy Joan and the Bidens. Investigator Dominic Casey told the Daily Mail that he assisted Roberts by providing information about Hunter’s finances. He also said he initiated the settlement talks, which ended with Roberts receiving $2.5m. “The child is going to get nothing more, Joe does not recognize her as his blood. Neither does Hunter, despite the DNA result,” said investigator Casey. “There has been zero contact with the child. It’s been that way since the beginning and that hasn’t changed at all. It’s despicable,” Casey alleged in regard to Bidens and the child.
Lunden Roberts and her only daughter are reportedly living in a four-bed cabin-style home set in five acres of secluded farmland in Arkansas. Besides mother Lunden, Navy is living with her grandparents from her mother’s side Lunden’s parents Rob and Kimberly Roberts, who are both into blue-collar jobs. Roberts reportedly spent the first chunk of her settlement in buying a brand new three-bed family home for a little under $200,000. It is not yet confirmed if this is the house where they are living in.
In August 2020, Roberts’ sister Randi Jo posted a rare photo of Navy Joan on Facebook. As per reports, the photo has the toddler’s face turned away from the camera to protect her anonymity. “We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon,” she said, hinting at her niece’s extraordinary lineage to the powerful family of Bidens. “Aunt Raemi loves you more than you’ll ever know...and your mama too.”
Joe Biden has six grandchildren -- Natalie, Hunter, Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy and Beau -- apart from Hunter's alleged lovechild Navy. They all come from his two sons, Beau and Hunter.
