Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa were spotted with their baby at a friends' house on Super Bowl Sunday – as the president's son is set to release his memoir.
Photographs captured President Joe Biden's 51-year-old son Hunter with his wife and baby boy heading to a friend's house in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The adorable baby – named after the former VP's son who passed away – was captured in the arms of his dad as "Beautiful Things" is set to be released on April 6 – Hunter's memoir which has already topped Amazon's "Biographies" list for China.
Beau Biden Jr, now 10 months old, appeared to be wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, shorts, white high-socks, and no shoes.
Hunter's wife, Melissa Cohen, was seen carrying a black-and-white baby bouncer to seemingly keep the young boy happy during the football festivities.
All three were photographed as they made their way from a Ford truck and up the stairs of a friend's home.
They were spotted before the start of Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Both Hunter and his wife Melissa were wearing face masks as they made their way to the entrance.
Hunter sported a face mask with a four-leaf clover.
Super Bowl Sunday comes as Hunter has been accused of "cashing in" on his dad's presidency with his "harrowing" memoir that was hidden during his email scandal.
The book was acquired in the fall of 2019, but was reportedly kept under wraps as Hunter's infamous business dealings took the limelight.
In a snippet released by Gallery Books, Hunter writes in his book, "I come from a family forged by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love."
During one of the 2020 presidential debates, Joe Biden defended his son from attacks by Donald Trump.
"My son, like a lot of people, like a lot of people you know at home, had a drug problem," Biden said.
"He’s overtaken it. He’s fixed it. He’s worked on it, and I’m proud of him. I’m proud of my son."
Financial terms for “Beautiful Things,” which was written in collaboration with the author and journalist Drew Jubera, were not disclosed.
However, people have been taking to social media to claim that Hunter appears to be releasing the book for money.
"They're already cashing in. Hunter's book coming soon. Wonder what kind of advance he got?" one user wrote.
Another said: "I have no interest in reading Hunter Biden's spin. Obviously book cashing in on *the Big Guy."
"Beautiful Things" was circulated among several authors and includes advance praise from Stephen King, Dave Eggers and Anne Lamott.
"In his harrowing and compulsively readable memoir, Hunter Biden proves again that anybody — even the son of a United States President — can take a ride on the pink horse down nightmare alley," King writes in his blurb.
"Biden remembers it all and tells it all with a bravery that is both heartbreaking and quite gorgeous. He starts with a question: Where’s Hunter? The answer is he's in this book, the good, the bad, and the beautiful."
Joe and Jill Biden have today also released a statement about the book.
“We admire our son Hunter’s strength and courage to talk openly about his addiction so that others might see themselves in his journey and find hope,” it read.
Hunter has recently been under fire for his dealings with Ukraine and China businesses.
The 51-year-old joined the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2014, around the time his father, then vice president, was helping conduct the Obama administration’s foreign policy in that region.
Trump and others have insisted that Biden was exploiting his father’s name, and they raised unsubstantiated charges of corruption.
In December, Hunter confirmed that the Justice Department was looking into his tax affairs, and that he had received a subpoena asking about his interaction with numerous business entities.
Though Trump made clear publicly that he wanted a special counsel to handle the investigation, then-Attorney General William Barr did not appoint one. Hunter has denied any wrongdoing.
