Genevieve Mecher became famous after her mother Jen Psaki became the 34th White House press secretary. As with all the other star kids, a lot of people are curious about Genevieve’s life.
Her mother, Jen, has been an integral part of the Biden Administration. That being said, she is all set to leave the Oval Office in May of 2022 all because she wasn’t able to give time to her husband and kids.
Here today let us talk about Genevieve Mecher, one of two kids of Jen Psaki and her husband. We will talk about her hobbies, relationship with her mom and dad, her lavish life, and the meaning behind her name.
Genevieve Mecher, Jen Psaki’s Daughter: Is her name biblical?
She was born in 2015, in Washington D.C as the first child between Jen Psaki and her husband Greg Mecher. At the time of her birth, her mother was working at the White House as the communication director for the Obama administration.
Her full name is Genevieve ‘Vivi’ Grace, which is a biblical name. Her name means ‘God’s Blessing’ and is popular in the Christian religion. What’s more, back in the fifth century, there was a nun named Genevieve in Paris. She had incredible faith in Christianity and through her prayer helped protect the city against Attila the Hun.
Besides, Genevieve belongs to the Greek and Polish ancestry.
As a five-year-old, she is most definitely going to daycare and will start kindergarten soon. On the other hand, both of her parents are well educated. Her father Greg is a graduate of Northern Kentucky University. He also studied at the Elder High School.
On the other hand, Genevieve’s mother graduated from the College of William & Mary. She also studied at Greenwich High School. During her time at William & Mary, she was a member of the swimming team.
Genevieve Vivi Mecher has one younger sibling
Vivi’s parents Jen and Greg, aside from herself, are a parent of another kid, a baby boy named Matthew. He was born on 23rd April 2019. Besides, Jen is incredibly protective of her kid’s privacy.
As someone who is always in the news due to her political affiliation, Jen wants to keep her family from the media. And rightfully so because we all know how much media can influence.
The only time we found out Jen has another child besides Vivi was when she shared a Tweet pertaining to her kids.
Her parents have been married for a long time
Jen and Greg have been in a relationship for a long time. The lovebirds exchanged vows on May 8th, 2010 in an intimate ceremony. The nuptials took place in Ridge, Maryland.
Initially, the lovebirds first crossed paths in a rather unconventional way. So back in 2006, Jen was working at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the then chairman of DCCC Rahm Emanuel was coming to Philadelphia to speak at an event.
While Psaki was trying to set up a web video for Emmanuel, the chairman’s driver called her up to ask for the direction. Unfortunately, Jen wasn’t really good with direction, and she unknowingly gave him the wrong direction.
Well, Mecher, who used to travel with Emmanuel, was on the other end of the line that day. Despite not reaching the destination in time due to Jen’s misdirection, Mecher fell in love with the lady thinking she is cute.
Afterward, both of them started meeting each other as their work entangled quite a bit.
Genevieve Mecher Parents’ Profession
Both her mom and dad are exceptional in their respective field. While her mother is a renowned American commentator who has held up several high positions in the government, her father is also a government official. Let us talk about her parents one by one.
Her mom Jen started her career as a political advisor in the early 2000s. After working on several campaigns, she gained a big rapport after working as a traveling press secretary for U.S. Senator Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign. She again started working for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign as press secretary.
Then on February 7th, 2017, she started working as a commentator for CNN. She left the network in November 2020 and joined the Biden-Harris team. After Joe Biden became president, she was elected as the White House secretary.
On the other hand, her father worked in a lot of high-ranking positions. From 2009 to 2011 Greg was the Chief of Staff for Rep. Steve Driehaus, as White House Liaision, and Deputy Chief of Staff for U. S. General Services Administration from July 2011 to Jan 2013.
Genevieve’s mother is skeptical of her daughter joining gymnastic
Back in 2018, Vivi’s mother Jen shared a post on her Twitter account. In the post, she talked about how the gymnast McKayla Maroney’s sexual abuse scandal really shocked her and how she will not allow her daughter Genevieve to become a gymnast until there’s some change.
In addition to that, Genevieve once also shared a post in which she talked about the type of politician Vivi wants to vote. See for yourself!
