Jill Biden says she 'wouldn't have met Joe' without her divorce

The First Lady shared a photo of herself before Valentine’s Day visiting a boutique bakery in Washington. Posting the picture on Twitter, Dr Biden wrote: “Dropped by @TheSweetLobby earlier to pick up some Valentine’s treats for the weekend. Shhh – don’t tell Joe!”

The picture sent social media fans into meltdown over Dr Biden’s light blue scrunchie.

One Twitter user reacted: “So part of what I never realised I needed was a FLOTUS in a scrunchie”

Another user wrote: “She’s wearing a scrunchie! I love this relatable woman!!!”

A third fan posted: “I cannot describe how cute I think you are in that pink coat and a scrunchie.

“I think we all wear scrunchies. Are you usually this much of a fashionista with your scrunchies?"

The First Lady revealed it was her daughter Ashley Biden who told her about the online scrunchie mania.

Dr Biden said: "You know, my daughter called me right after I left that shop and said, 'Mom, everyone's talking about this scrunchie.'

“I said, 'What scrunchie?' I didn't know what she was talking about. I still don't understand it.”

Ms Clarkson replied: "Well, I'm just saying, if you're gonna start bringing back scrunchies, throw in the banana clips as well.”

During the interview, the First Lady and Ms Clarkson also had a heart-to-heart discussion about relationships and healing from divorce.

The singer filed for divorce from her husband of seven years Brandon Blackstock in June.

The First Lady reflected on her divorce from first husband Bill Stevenson in 1975.

Dr Biden told Ms Clarkson: “This is what I would say to you if I were your mother.

"You know, my mother always said to me, 'Things are going to look better tomorrow. And if you can take one day at a time, things will get better'."

She added: "If I hadn’t gotten divorced, I never would’ve met Joe.

"I wouldn’t have the beautiful family I have now.

“So, I really think things happen for the best."

US President Joe Biden married Jill in 1977 and the couple had their daughter Ashley together four years later.
