Here’s what you need to know about the woman who will soon be joining Mr. Biden at the White House.
Who is Jill Biden?
Born in June 1951 in the US state of New Jersey, Jill Jacobs, Mrs. Biden was the eldest of five sisters and grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Willow Grove.
Before marrying Mr. Biden, she was married to former college footballer Bill Stevenson.
He eventually married the Democratic presidential candidate in 1977, four years after his first wife and young daughter died in a car accident.
Mrs. Biden has previously stated that she had proposed to Mr. Biden five times before accepting him.
Before giving birth to daughter Ash Shelley in 1989, she helped Mr Biden raise his surviving sons, Bau – who later died of brain cancer in May 2015 at the age of 46 – and Hunter in 1981.
Mrs. Biden, who has consistently built a career as a teacher, described herself on her Twitter page as “lifelong educated.”
“I don’t teach what I do. That’s who I am,” he said on Twitter before his address to the Democratic convention.
Mrs. Biden received two master’s degrees from the University of Delaware in 2007 and later a doctorate in education.
Along the way, former colleagues say, Mrs. Biden became a very valuable political advisor to her husband, whose opinion was important in most of her major decisions, both politically and personally.

Mrs Biden went on to win the second women’s title while her husband served as vice president from 2009 to 2017.

“In the year 2000, after we won the election, no one really expected me to continue teaching,” Ms. Biden said in an interview about her work as another woman.
“But I couldn’t go away … so I did both. For eight years, it was the dichotomy of my life. The hospitality and mediation of the state.
“Dinner with the most powerful man on earth – and study sessions with a single mum.”

Ms Biden has also shown that providing assistance to military families is one of her main concerns.
He launched the Forces Initiative to join forces with Michelle Obama, which focuses on helping military veterans and their families with education programs and employment resources.

“There comes a time when I couldn’t even imagine how he did it – how he put one foot in front of the other and kept going,” he said.
“But I’ve always understood why he did it. He does it for you. ”
Speaking on NBC’s Today show, Ms Biden said her husband was on the phone “every minute of the day” talking to the states.
Mr. Biden has previously praised his wife’s own qualities as a potential First Lady.
