Joe Biden‘s son Hunter Biden and Hunter’s wife, Melissa Cohen, welcomed a son last week, Page Six reports.
Cohen gave birth on Saturday in Los Angeles, according to the outlet. A South African documentarian in her 30s, she married Hunter, 50, in L.A. last May, days after they first met.
Their newborn son is “beautiful and healthy,” Cohen’s brother told Page Six.
A spokesman for Hunter did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Cohen married Hunter on the roof of her L.A. apartment. They exchanged “the simplest gold wedding bands he could find,” and afterward they called his dad. The details of their romance were confirmed for the first time in a candid New Yorker profile published last July.
Cohen’s pregnancy was confirmed in a New York Times piece in February which detailed Hunter’s painting, which he had taken up as a kind of coping mechanism after years of difficulties such as addiction and an ongoing child support lawsuit. (Word of Cohen’s pregnancy first leaked to British tabloid The Daily Mail in December.)
Art “is literally keeping me sane,” Hunter told the Times then. “For years I wouldn’t call myself an artist. Now I feel comfortable saying it.”
Since his father launched a presidential campaign last spring, Hunter has found himself in a harsh spotlight. Conservatives circulated unfounded claims of corruption about his work in Ukraine, which was then at the center of President Donald Trump‘s impeachment scandal.
Hunter was also sued by a woman in Arkansas after they had a child together in 2018 and he ignored the baby and did not pay child support, she said in court papers.
He also denied being the father, but a paternity test proved otherwise.
