The bombshell messages also show that just three months after Lunden Roberts gave birth to their baby girl, Navy Joan Roberts, Hunter asked his assistant to make sure that the new mother had been kicked off his company’s health insurance plan.
The texts are on Hunter’s abandoned laptop, obtained and exclusively verified by DailyMail.com.
Hunter, 51, conceived his daughter with Lunden, 29, around December 2017 while still in a relationship with his brother’s widow Hallie Biden. The girl was his fourth child.
He ignored her pleas for help caring for the child and denied paternity when she eventually sued him for child support in an Arkansas court.
DailyMail.com can reveal Lunden Roberts, the mother of Hunter Biden’s love child, was an employee at his consulting firm when she became pregnant with his daughter in late 2017. She is pictured right leaving a court hearing in Arkansas in 2019
The 29-year-old (pictured in January) from Batesville, Arkansas, gave birth to Navy Joan Roberts, in August 2018 following a brief fling with the president’s son. The child’s existence, however, remained a secret until May 2019 when Roberts sued Hunter for child support
Even after a DNA test proved he was the father, the president’s son claimed he did not have enough money to pay child support – despite living in a $12,000-per-month home in Hollywood and driving a Porsche.
When the judge ordered him to produce financial records, Hunter settled out of court for a reported $2.5 million.
Roberts had previously been reported as a former stripper at a Washington DC club which Hunter frequented, but texts reveal she was in fact a worker at his consultancy firm, Rosemont Seneca.
December 2018 texts from his assistant at the firm, Katie Dodge, say that a woman named ‘Lunden’ had been on the payroll for at least nine months that year.
Lunden texted Hunter in July 2018, when she was around six months pregnant, letting him know that their baby was due September 8 that year. He did not respond.
On July 3 she texted: ‘Just called to check in on you..’ Then on July 24 she wrote ‘Amoeba DD [due date] Sep 8, 2018 All Good.’
After not receiving a response for two weeks Lunden texted Hunter again.
Texts messages from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show Lunden informed him about the baby’s due date and pleaded for help in caring for the child multiple times in 2018, but her messages went ignored
A conversation from December 2018 showed Hunter texted his assistant, Katie Dodge, and asked her to make sure Lunden was not on the firm’s health insurance plan. The baby would have been around three months old at this time

‘Reached out a few times, it’s clear you don’t want to be reached. Need to talk to you. If you feel the need to reach out, my line is always open. Hope all is well,’ she wrote.
The text was repeated four times with no response.
The messages cast serious doubt on Hunter’s claim in his memoir, Beautiful Things, released in April this year
When the newborn baby was around three months old, Hunter texted Dodge and asked her to make sure Lunden was not on the firm’s health insurance plan.
‘Who is pay roll paid to now and for past 9 months?’ Hunter wrote on December 19, 2018.
‘Past nine months has been you, me, Lunden, Hallie, Liz & Erin. But currently only you me & Erin,’ his assistant Katie Dodge replied.
‘3 on pay roll. Only 2 need to partake in insurance. I have insurance. No Lunden’s removal doesn’t jeopardize insurance.’
The only entry for ‘Lunden’ in Hunter’s contact book on his laptop is Lunden Roberts.
Texts from Hallie to Hunter calling him out for alleged cheating also reference Lunden, suggesting Hunter brought the woman into their lives as early as April 2017.
In his memoir, Beautiful Things, Hunter referred to Lunden as ‘the woman from Arkansas’ and claimed he had ‘no recollection of our encounter’
At the time the baby was conceived, Hunter had been dating his brother’s widow, Hallie Biden. Texts from Hallie (pictured) on April 24, 2017 show she accused him of cheating with ‘Lundon’
In his book, Hunter claimed his relationship with Hallie (pictured) ‘belonged to a whole other category’ and that the other women he had been with only helped ‘satisfy our immediate needs and little else’
‘These are huge signs right in front of my eyes. I thought you were telling me ‘everything that you would want to know’ but it seems not. I don’t know where/what/why you have these things that you justify as ok but don’t share until I find them,’ Hallie wrote to Hunter amid a row over text on April 24, 2017.
‘Brianna (Devon D obviously to hide from me and then f***ing airline tix that you ‘forgot.’ Lundon’s friend that you face time all through the night Genieve and now a ‘cleaning business?’
‘Now Trina the Lyft partner massage girl that left her massage table at your place and you both ‘really looking forward to seeing each other again’ and now the hotel for international Sam Abrina (unless there are 2 different girls) where she asks you to come back to her room again. It is all just too much. Breaking me.’

The messages cast serious doubt on Hunter’s claim in his memoir, Beautiful Things, released in April this year, that he had ‘no recollection’ of Lunden.
‘My relationship with Hallie belonged to a whole other category, and the other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type,’ he wrote in the book, billed as a ‘tell-all’.
‘We would satisfy our immediate needs and little else. I’m not proud of it.
‘It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine – I had no recollection of our encounter. That’s how little connection I had with anyone.
‘I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for.’
However, Lunden’s lawyer Clint Lancaster says the president’s son is still failing to take responsibility.
‘He has only taken financial responsibility when the court forced him to do it,’ Lancaster told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
‘He’s not seen his child. He has no relationship with his child, by his own choosing.
‘Mr. Biden hasn’t taken responsibility for this child until he parents her.’
The attorney added that Joe Biden and First Lady Jill have also yet to meet Navy Joan.
‘Every child needs loving parents and loving grandparents. This child could stand a relationship with her father. She could stand a relationship with her grandfather,’ he said.
Roberts was raised in Batesville, Arkansas, and graduated from the state university in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, after playing on the school’s women’s basketball team.
Lancaster said Roberts met Hunter after moving to Washington DC and taking classes at George Washington University.
The attorney said Hunter soon hired her and took her on business trips.
‘She stayed in hotels, some of the nicest hotels around, with Hunter Biden, traveling with him more than once,’ Lancaster told the Gazette.
Roberts is now engaged to 26-year-old roofer and amateur MMA fighter Princeton Foster.
She started dating Foster in late 2018, when Navy Joan was a few months old, and got engaged the following April. He is helping raise the girl as his own.
Roberts used some of her reported $2.5million settlement to buy a newly constructed $200,000 home in Arkansas in October.
