Who is Ashley Biden? 

Ashley Blazer Biden, 39, is a social worker, activist and fashion designer. 

Born on June 8, 1981 in Wilmington, Delaware, Ashley is the daughter of Joe Biden and his second wife Jill. 

She is the half-sister of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's only surviving son from his first marriage.

Ashley received her master’s degree in social work from the University of Pennsylvania and began her career as a social worker and career development and education liaison. 

In 2014, Ashley was named executive director of the Delaware Center for Justice, which focuses on criminal justice reform.

Ashley started her Livelihood clothing brand in 2017, making hoodies and other items to raise money for programs addressing income inequality. 

Ashley explained to Delaware Today: "My dad always taught me that silence is complicity and that I must stand up for anyone who was being treated unfairly. 

“That has stayed with me through adulthood, and is the guiding principle in my professional life."

"I'm extremely proud of her," Joe Biden said at a New York Fashion Week event.

"She's been trying to change the world since she's been 3 years old, and I think she's going to do it."

Who is Ashley Biden's husband Howard Krein and do they have children? 

Ashley’s husband, Howard Krein, is a plastic surgeon and chief medical officer of StartUp Health, a venture capital firm. 

He is also a professor of otolaryngology. 

The two, who met through Joe Biden's late son Beau, married in 2012.

Biden called him “the right guy” for his daughter. 

Ashley and Howard do not have any children.

What has Ashley Biden said about Joe Biden's administration?  

Ashley Biden is a private person who has no social media accounts. 

However, in a recent interview with Today, the President’s daughter confirmed she will not have a job in her father’s administration – unlike Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka. 

Instead, she hopes to use her role as a “platform to advocate for social justice, for mental health, to be involved in community development and revitalization.”

She said: “I do hope to bring awareness and education to some topics, subjects that are really important.”

Ashley has also spoken of her father’s empathy and focus on family after he lost his first wife and baby daughter Naomi in a car crash in 1972. 

Ashley said: "Dad is so empathetic and has the ability to recognize pain, to feel others' pain, and to comfort." 

Ashley admitted she was worried about her father’s inauguration – which took place yesterday on January 20, saying: “I think anybody you love who is being threatened or… yes, you worry.”

But she also praised the “incredible” Secret Service, adding: “He has so much protection, so in that way, I don't [worry].”
