On Sunday, November 20, the 46th US President Joseph Robinett Biden Jr. celebrates his 80th birthday. He remains the oldest head of the White House in the history of the United States.

The White House assures that Biden does not smoke, does not drink alcohol and plays sports five times a week. Biden is also considering running for a second term in the 2024 elections.

Despite the fact that the 46th president almost always looks cheerful and peaceful, in his youth Joe Biden experienced a personal tragedy that changed his life.

Joe Biden's tragedy: the death of his wife and daughter

In 1966, 24-year-old Joe Biden married the beautiful teacher Neilia Hunter, whom he met in the Bahamas during his spring break. The girl was from a Presbyterian family, and they objected to her daughter's marriage to a Catholic, but Neilia was able to convince them.

The young couple had three children – sons Joseph, who was nicknamed Bo in the family, and Hunter, as well as a daughter, Naomi.

However, Biden's family happiness did not last long: in 1972, Nelia and little Naomi tragically died in a car accident. Sons Bo and Hunter were seriously injured, but survived.

In 1978, Biden married a second time. His wife was Jill Stevenson, who, like her first wife, worked as a teacher. In this marriage, the daughter Ashley was born.

It was Jill who persuaded her husband to run for president, to which he subsequently listened.

Good heredity

Joe Biden's father, Joseph Robinette Biden Sr., lived to be 87 years old, and his mother, Katherine Eugenia, to 93, so the 46th president is genetically predisposed to longevity.

The White House assures that he doesn't smoke, doesn't drink alcohol and plays sports five times a week.

After a medical examination of the President of the United States in November 2021, an official message appeared from Biden's personal doctor Kevin O'Connor, who claimed that the politician was fully fit for public service and was able to perform his duties without any restrictions. “President Biden remains a healthy and energetic man,” the medic said.

The president himself said that it was “absolutely legal” for voters to wonder if a person of his age is able to cope with stress, holding the post of head of state.

“I think the best way to give such an assessment is just to look at me,” the US President noted.

Joe Biden's nicknames

As a child, Biden stuttered heavily, and classmates nicknamed him “Bye-Bye.” Trying to get rid of the defect of speech, the boy recited poems alone for hours, standing in front of a mirror. As a result, Joe was able to defeat the violation and stopped stuttering.

During the election campaign, the politician was given another nickname – Sleepy Joe, trying to hurt his feelings and lower the credibility of the presidential candidate.

On April 25, 2019, then-White House President Donald Trump tweeted, “Welcome to the race, Sleepy Joe.” The nickname was picked up by some Republican media, thus hinting at Biden's failure as a leader and his inability to govern the United States.
