US First Lady Jill Biden gives Boris Johnson's son Wilfred a book called Joey

America's First Lady Jill Biden gave the Prime Minister’s son Wilfred a copy of the book she wrote about her husband’s childhood when she met him for a paddle in the sea.

Dr Biden, 70, handed the gift to Carrie Johnson, the one-year-old’s mother, as they enjoyed a stroll on the beach at Carbis Bay, Cornwall, on Thursday.

Her book – Joey: The Story Of Joe Biden – was published last year and tells the story of the US President’s early years as a devoted brother and a defender of his childhood friends who were being bullied.

It also describes a true story about him and his friends hopping ‘from rooftop to rooftop of the garages’ in his neighbourhood after seeing a Tarzan movie.

The cover is an illustration of a young Biden riding a red bicycle. His younger sister Valerie is believed to be the character sitting on the handlebars. A bestseller in America, it was published by Schuster and Schuster.

Wilfred – with his telltale mane of blond hair – joined his mother and Dr Biden on the beach.

Posting a photo on Instagram of the seaside visit, Mrs Johnson, 33, wrote: ‘Wonderful to spend some time with First Lady at Carbis Bay. We even dipped our toes into the water. Beautiful but freezing.’

Mrs Biden and Mrs Johnson were seen getting on well, smiling and laughing together.

Speaking about the book last year, she said: ‘Young children see Joe on TV and I want them to know Joe as a child, he was so brave and adventurous.’
