Vice President Joseph Biden’s future son-in-law is a Jewish doctor.

The news became public after Biden referred to Philadelphia doctor Howard Krein as his future son-in-law during an event in his home state of Delaware on Oct. 28.

Ashley Biden, 30, and Krein reportedly dated for a year before they became engaged in September, according to reports. Biden is a social worker. Krein is an ear, nose and throat specialist at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

In her Naked Philadelphian blog, Laura Goldman wrote that “Employees of Jefferson Hospital told me that Howard is proud of being Jewish, so expect some Jewish elements at the wedding. Maybe that will shut up some of Obama’s Jewish critics.”
