Lunden Roberts, Hunter Biden's baby mama, reveals her grief over Joe's five-year-old granddaughter being “intentionally” left without Christmas stockings for the White House Christmas tree

Lunden Roberts revealed in a new interview with Megyn Kelly on Friday that it was “hurtful” that First Lady Jill Biden “intentionally” did not provide a Christmas stocking for her daughter, Hunter Biden's illegitimate child Navy Joan.

Roberts has written a tell-all book about her relationship with Hunter, “Out of the Shadows: My Life Inside the Wild World of Hunter Biden,” due out in August, and is currently doing the interview rounds before it hits bookstores.

Kelly, a former Fox News host, spoke out about the “heartlessness” with which Roberts and Navy Joan were treated, particularly by the First Lady – with the Biden family only acknowledging the little girl's existence in July.

She then asked Roberts about the Christmas stockings on display – which for several years bore the names of six, but not seven, of the Bidens' grandchildren – and even the names of the White House pets.

In 2023 – after the recognition of Navy Joan – stockings were omitted from Christmas decorations.

“It's hurtful when the matriarch of a family, who is supposed to hold the family together, intentionally excludes someone from the family and the bloodline,” Roberts said. “And that's something my daughter will read and see one day.”

“It breaks my heart knowing that it's going to break her heart when she reads and sees the things she's going to read about exclusion,” Roberts continued. “And she's going to wonder why, and all I can do is be there for her when she's old enough to understand these things.”

Roberts revealed that she “brought up this topic” when she spoke to Hunter for the first time since her pregnancy.

Kelly didn't take long to ask the First Son for his reaction.

She then asked how Roberts would explain the exclusion to Navy Joan, who has not yet met any member of the Biden family.

“It's hard because this is one of those things where I have to tell her I can't tell her why. I can't explain other people's behavior to her. All I can say is I'm sorry,” Roberts said.

She added that she felt a lot of “mother guilt” because of the circumstances.

“And I feel guilty because I'm the reason she's in this predicament. This is my child that I have with him. I put myself in this situation and I feel guilty about it,” Roberts said.

In an interview with Piers Morgan this week, Roberts said Hunter and Navy Joan are building a relationship over Zoom calls.

Roberts said she will continue to work with Hunter to ensure Navy Joan gets to know her father, but acknowledged that the eldest son is busy.

Hunter was facing charges in federal court in Wilmington for purchasing a gun in 2018 and saying he was not a drug user when his crack cocaine addiction was at its peak.

“So that's something that I hope, as the relationship between Hunter and Navy grows, maybe he can turn things around and try to explain to her this behavior and the reasons behind it,” Roberts told Kelly about the Biden family's rejection.
