The Democrat is very close to his family, and many members are expected to attend this historic occasion.
His family have been vocal in their support of Biden throughout his campaign, and were by his side when he won the election in November.
But who are his children, and how many grandchildren does Biden have?
Who are Joe Biden’s children?
Joe Biden has fathered four children in total.
Three of them were with his first wife, Neilia, who he married in 1966.

In order of birth, they were Joseph Robinette III, known as Beau, Robert Hunter, and Naomi Christina, known as Amy.
On December 18, 1972, when Neilia was driving with their three children to buy a Christmas tree, her car was tragically hit by a tractor-trailer.
Neilia and Naomi were pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. Neilia was 30 years old, and Naomi was just over a year old.
The two young boys sustained serious injuries. They were hospitalised for months.
Beau was a politician, lawyer, and officer in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He sadly passed away in 2015 after a two-year battle with brain cancer.

Hunter Biden is a lawyer and investment advisor. He is a founding partner of investment and advisory firm Rosemont Seneca Partners.
Hunter has been frequently attacked by Trump and his associates of wrongdoing in regards to Ukraine and China, which he denies.
During the election campaign, the New York Post reported on an alleged email in which an adviser from a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, apparently thanked Hunter for inviting him to meet his father, Joe Biden.
No criminal activity has been proven, and no evidence has emerged that Joe Biden did anything to intentionally benefit his son.

Mr Biden met Dr Jill Tracy Jacobs on a blind date in 1975, and the pair married in 1977.
Their daughter, Ashley Blazer, was born a few years later, in 1981.
Ashley is a social worker, activist, philanthropist, and fashion designer.
She also served as the executive director of the Delaware Center for Justice from 2014 to 2019.
Who are Joe Biden’s grandchildren?
Joe Biden has seven grandchildren in total – five from Hunter, and two from Beau.
