Vice Presidents' Kids Who Are Gorgeous Today

Vice presidents' kids are typically thrust into the spotlight when their parents run for office. While their parents are in office, these children live life very much in the public eye. While vice presidents' kids aren't typically under quite as much scrutiny as the children of presidents are, being part of the second family can still be stressful.

Most of the attention, of course, is centered on the vice president themself rather than on the vice president's kids, so many people don't realize just how attractive the children of vice presidents grow up to be. Many kids who have a parent who served as vice president are living incredible lives today and have grown up to be incredibly good looking. While some of them have followed in the footsteps of their vice presidential parent by going into politics, other kids have forged their own paths. Here are vice presidents' kids who are absolutely gorgeous today.

Charlotte Pence wrote a book about her vice president father

Charlotte Pence has grown up a lot since her dad, Mike Pence, became Donald Trump's running mate in the 2016 presidential election. She and her father are quite close, and Pence even wrote a book about her politician dad, Where You Go: Life Lessons from My Father

In 2019, Pence announced that she was engaged to her boyfriend, Henry Bond, and that she would hold her reception where she had always dreamed of holding her wedding reception: at her parents' home. Of course, growing up she couldn't have imagined that her parents' home would be the residence of the vice president of the United States. "I just really like the idea of family all being in someone's home, around a wedding," the gorgeous vice president's kid told USA Today. "And it's special to me that it'll be a fact that people might talk about in the future... people that come to visit the house or live here in the future."

According to the Washington Examiner, the couple were wed on Dec. 28, 2019.

Karenna Gore is one vice president's kid who fights against climate change

Karenna Gore is doing pretty well for herself and is also working to make a difference. According to State of the Planet, Gore attended Harvard for undergrad. She then went on to Columbia Law School. She spent years working for child justice organizations before returning to school and earning an M.A. in social ethics from Union Theological Seminary in 2013. She then became the director of the Center for Earth Ethics at the school.

This would already be a pretty impressive resume, but Gore has done quite a bit more. According to her bio on the Center for Earth Ethics website, Gore is also a writer. She wrote Lighting the Way: Nine Women Who Changed Modern America.

Gore is dedicated to fighting climate change and protecting the environment. In 2016, the vice president's kid made headlines after she was arrested for protesting the construction of a pipeline (via the New York Post). She told Vox that she believes in the work the Center for Earth Ethics is doing in exposing "the deeper root cause of climate change: a value system and an economic development paradigm based on short-term economic gain." For those curious, here's the truth about climate research.

Vice president's kid Ashley Biden has her own fashion line

Ashley Biden has had a stunning transformation and has blossomed into a fashion designer. According to The Washington Post, her brand, Livelihood, was founded in 2017 and supports a number of causes including criminal justice and education reform. "A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these organic-cotton, Made in the U.S.A. hoodies, and 100% of the profits from the launch, will be deposited on a quarterly basis into a community foundation to be accessed by residents in two chosen zip codes across the United States," reads the brand's website.

The brand was founded after her older brother, Beau Biden, passed away from brain cancer in 2015. The brand's logo features an arrow piercing the letters "LH," representing how "we have to sometimes be pulled all the way down to shoot forward," and was inspired by her brother. "He was my bow," said Biden. "His cancer brought me to my knees. I had no choice but to shoot forward, keep going, keep aiming at my own dreams."

Biden is also a social worker, according to HuffPost. In 2012, the former vice president's daughter married Dr. Howard David Krein, a plastic surgeon.

Vice president's kid Audrey Pence is a law student

Audrey Pence has changed a lot since her dad, Mike Pence, became the vice president. In 2018, Above the Law announced that the vice president's kid was a first-year law school student at Yale. In 2019, the vice president's daughter announced her engagement to her college boyfriend, Daniel Tomanelli, as reported by The Washington Post.

The politician's kid looked gorgeous in an Instagram photo of their betrothal. "Of course I said yes, and then we got caught in a rainstorm!" she wrote in the caption. "Rain or shine, I'm so glad you'll always be by my side."

Pence and her dad have a good relationship, although they don't always exactly see eye to eye. In 2013, the then-teenaged Pence told 13 WTHR that she is not a conservative like her dad but considers herself "politically independent." Her dad supports her political views, though. "Probably the person I get the most respect from is my dad on that and he has always... he tells me so many times, 'I am proud of you for having your own opinions and looking into things,'" she said.

Kristin Gore became a writer after being known as a vice president's kid

Former vice president Al Gore's kids seem to be talented in creative fields. His daughter, Kristin Gore, is a writer with several books under her belt. According to Publisher's Weekly, Gore's novels include Sammy's Hill, Sweet Jimmy, and Sammy's House. Gore graduated from Harvard and has written for television shows Saturday Night Live and Futurama, according to NPR.

Gore has come a long way since her dad was vice president. Having a famous politician for a dad impacted the writer's life in a big way. "When my father became vice president, I was a sophomore in high school," she told Women's Health. "I'd do things like go on a run with my soccer team and purposely dodge the security van. Then my parents compromised with the Secret Service when I went to college. I just had a panic button in my dorm room, so if I pressed that, they'd be there within 2 or 3 minutes." The vice president's kid noted, "I had to put up signs that said, 'Please don't touch!' But everybody would be like, 'What's this?' as they were pressing the big red button. So there were some false alarms."

Michael Pence is not just a vice president's kid, but also a decorated military man

Mike Pence's kids grew up on the campaign trail, following their dad during his 12 years as a congressman before he became governor of Indiana and later vice president of the United States. His son, Michael Pence, says that his childhood was quite typical in spite of this. "Frankly, we've had a pretty normal childhood," he told 13 WTHR in 2013.

Pence went to college at Purdue, where he studied to become a pilot. He later entered the military. In 2018, the Meridian Star (via Navy Times) reported that Marine 1st Lt. Michael Pence graduated from naval aviator training.

In 2019, Pence's mother, Karen Pence, said that she isn't worried about her son being in the military as she has faith in God and in her son's abilities. "He hasn't been deployed," she told CNN. "So that's going to be harder."

Vice president's kid Sarah Gore got married and joined a band

Vice president's kid Sarah Gore pursued a career in the creative arts. She married fellow musician Patrick Maiani in 2014. "Patrick and I met at a real-estate open house on the street he grew up on, in June of last year," she told People. "I was getting to know the neighborhood, walked into this little house, and he was there, sitting on the couch." She continued, "Once we started talking, we didn't want to stop. We took a walk to get coffee, ended up having dinner and afterwards dancing at the Biltmore [Hotel], where he sat down at the piano and played — he's an amazing pianist and songwriter."

According to News Blaze, Gore and her husband are in a band along with his brother and sister-in-law. The band, Smoke N Burn, was signed to Starpower Management in 2015. The musical couple have even gotten Gore's mom, Tipper Gore, into music. Tipper told Knox News that she practices the drums whenever she's visiting her youngest daughter. "She has a full drum set," she said. "I play when I'm visiting her and her husband."

Ben Quayle entered politics like his vice president dad

Following in the footsteps of former Vice President Dan Quayle, his son, Ben Quayle, is also a politician. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Dan Quayle served as the 44th Vice President of the United States during the presidency of George H.W. Bush. His son is also a republican. According to the official Biographical Directory of the United States Congress, Quayle served as a Representative from Arizona from Jan. 3, 2011 to Jan. 3, 2013.

Quayle is also a business owner and a lawyer. After his time in government, Quayle became a partner at HHQ Ventures where, according to his bio on the company's website, he specializes in domestic policy. This puts his political experience to good use — as a member of Congress, Quayle was part of the Committee on the Judiciary, the Committee on Homeland Security, and the Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

Mary Cheney is a former vice president's kid who became a political activist

Mary Cheney followed her dad, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and her sister, Liz Cheney, into the political field. Unlike them, however, she didn't run for office. Instead, Cheney is thriving as a political activist — one with more liberal leanings than her relatives. According to People, the family's differing political views caused a rift between Liz Cheney and Mary Cheney as Liz publicly opposed marriage equality in spite of her sister identifying as a lesbian. While Dick Cheney supported his daughter's sexuality, he also made no moves to support marriage equality laws while in office. "I'm Darth Vader's daughter," Cheney said in a discussion at American University in 2015 (via Politico).

In 2013, Cheney emerged as an activist for LGBTQIA+ rights, publicly opposing a proposed ban on marriage equality in Indiana. "There's nothing I wouldn't do to protect my wife Heather and our two children," the vice president's kid wrote in an e-mail to supporters of the group Freedom Indiana (via The Washington Post).

According to LinkedIn, Cheney is also managing partner at New Troy Strategies, a consulting firm specializing in public policy advocacy.

Vice president's kid Al Gore III is an actor

According to his IMDb profile, former vice president's kid Al Gore III has pursued acting, although his career hasn't taken off yet. He has one credit under his belt, a 2015 film called Accidental Love. Gore seems to be making an attempt to distance himself a bit from his famous dad, at least professionally, as he is credited in the film as Albert Gore instead of as Al Gore (according to Biography, both father and son are named Albert Arnold Gore but prefer to go by the nickname Al).

According to The Washington Post, Gore married Brittany Toscano in a ceremony held at Union Station in 2014. The couple are living a pretty low-profile life and haven't been in the news much since their wedding. According to Knox News, the former vice president's kid lives in a northern Virginia suburb outside Washington D.C. His home is in the same community where his mother, Tipper Gore, grew up.

Vice president's kid Marvin Bush is a partner at an investment firm

Marvin Bush is the son of George H.W. Bush, who served as Ronald Reagan's vice president for two terms before being elected as president himself (via Biography). The Bush family is part of a political dynasty. As noted by NPR, George H.W. Bush's son, Jeb, was governor of Florida for two terms, while George W. was governor of Texas for two terms before following in his father's footsteps and becoming president, winning the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. Ned Bush also dabbled in politics, joining Ted Cruz's fundraising team in 2016.

Youngest Bush son Marvin Bush, however, has largely stayed out of the spotlight — and politics — unlike the majority of his immediate family. Instead of entering the political arena like his father and brothers, he went into finance. According to LinkedIn, Bush is the managing partner of investment firm Winston Partners Group, LLC.

Vice president's kid Luci Baines Johnson received an honorary doctorate

When Luci Baines Johnson was a young woman, she had to choose between furthering her education or getting married. The daughter to former Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who became president after the assassination of John F. Kennedy (via Biography), the young woman was a nursing student at Georgetown University in 1965 when her boyfriend proposed. Because of a policy that prevented nursing students at the school (all of whom were women) from getting married, Johnson was forced to drop out at the age of 19 with only two semesters of college under her belt after she accepted her boyfriend's proposal.

In 2018, the university invited Johnson back to campus to give a commencement speech. While there, they awarded the 70-year-old an honorary doctorate. "If I look like a kid on Christmas morning, it's because that's the way I feel right now," Johnson said in her speech (via The Washington Post). "How I wish my parents could have heard the words you said about me."

There is no doubt that the former vice president and president would have been proud of his gorgeous daughter.

Vice president's kid Susan Ford raises awareness about substance abuse as a public speaker

Susan Ford famously had her prom at the White House in 1975. According to Vanity Fair, Ford convinced her dad, Gerald R. Ford, and the White House chief usher to let her school hold the dance there so long as the students paid for the event, provided their personal info to the Secret Service, and hired a band with no drug charges. "They said, 'Yeah, as long as you pay the expenses, so it's at no cost to the Federal government,'" said Ford. "That's what I remember."

Ford's father was Richard Nixon's vice president and became the president following Nixon's resignation (via Biography), giving the teens access to the White House. Today, Ford is all grown up and is a public speaker with Celebrity Mental Health Speakers. According to the vice president's kid's biography on the organization's website, Ford is an advocate for breast cancer awareness and gives speeches about her mother's addiction to prescription drugs and how it affected the presidential family.
