Amid reports that Michelle Obama's mother Marian 'First Granny' Robinson will be moving to the White House, we thought it was time to look at the ticket's other adorable grandmother: Joe's 92-year-old mother Katherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden, also known as Jean or as 'Mom Mom.'

When Joe Biden spoke at the DNC on August 27th, he gave a shout-out to his mom: "I thank God and I'm grateful that my mom Katherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden is here tonight. Mom, I love ya!" The crowd went wild and Jean appeared to get teary. He went on to recall that "As a child I stuttered and she lovingly would look at me and tell me 'Joey, it's because you're so bright you can't get the thoughts out quickly enough.' When I wasn't as well-dressed as the other kids she would look at me and say 'Joey, oh, you're so handsome, honey, you're so handsome.' And when I got knocked down by guys bigger than me, and this is the God's truth, she sent me back out and said 'Bloody their nose so you can walk down the street the next day!'" Out in the audience, Jean Biden could be seen mouthing "That's true."WATCH (the Jean Biden part starts at 3:52):
