Genevieve Mecher came into the limelight after her mother Jen Psaki became the 34th White House, press secretary. So, all the people are naturally curious to know about Genevieve’s life like other star kids.
Furthermore, her mother Jen has been an integral part of the Biden Administration. But she has already left the Oval Office on 13th May 2022 because she wasn’t able to give time to her children and husband.
Jen Psaki and her husband have welcomed two kids and one of them is Genevieve Mecher. Are you interested to know more about Genevieve?
If you are then you are probably in the right place as we will tell you everything about her hobbies, relationship, lifestyle, and the meaning behind her name in this article. So, let’s get right into it.
Genevieve Mecher is a biblical name
Genevieve Mecher was born in 2015 in the United States. She is the first born child of Jen Psaki and her husband Greg Mecher. Her mother was working at the White House as the communication director for the Obama administration at the time of her birth.
She was named Genevieve “Vive” Grace by her parents and it is a biblical name. Her name is quite popular in the Christian religion because her name means ‘God’s Blessing’.
Additionally, there was a nun named Genevieve in Paris back in the fifth century. The nun had incredible faith in Christianity and she even helped protect the city against Attila the Hun through her prayer. Talking about, Genevieve’s ancestry she is of Greek and Polish descent.
Her parents are doing a great job providing her well education. She must be around seven years old and she must have completed her kindergarten and started her school years. Genevieve’s parents are well educated. Her father graduated from Northern Kentucky University and studied at the Elder High School. Whereas, her mother graduated from the College of William & Marry and studied at Greenwich High School. Jen was even a member of the swimming team during her time at William & Marry.
Does she have any siblings?
As mentioned earlier, her parents have welcomed one more child beside her. Her sibling is a baby boy and his name is Matthew. Jen and Greg welcomed their baby boy on 23rd April 2019.
Genevieve’s mother is incredibly protective of her kid’s privacy. The reason why she keeps her family away from the media might be that she is someone who is always in the news due to her political affiliation and she doesn’t want her family member to face similar problems.
We all know how much the media can influence, don’t we? Jen is so secretive about her kids that we only got to know about her second child when she shared a Tweet pertaining to her kids.
Her parent’s love story
Genevieve’s parents have been together for a long time since 2010. Jen and Greg had decided to exchange vows on 8th May 2010 in an intimate ceremony. The wedding ceremony was held in Ridge, Maryland.
Talking about their love story, the love birds had first met each for the first time in a rather unconventional way. Jen was working at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006. At that time, the chairman of DCCC Rahm Emanuel was coming to Philadelphia to speak at an event.
Psaki was trying to set up a video for Emmanuel when the chairman’s driver called her up to ask for the direction. However, Jen wasn’t good with direction so she gave him the wrong direction unknowingly.
The one who was on the other end of the line that da traveling with Emmanuel was no other than Mecher. Mecher fell in love with the lady thinking that she is cute despite not reaching the destination in time due to Jen’s misdirection. Thus, they started meeting each other as their work entangled quite a bit and slowly fell in love with each other.
Genevieve’s mother won’t allow her to become a gymnast
Vive’s mother seems like she won’t allow her daughter to become a gymnast. Her mother shared a post on her Twitter account back in 2018. In that post, Jen talked about how the gymnast McKayla Maroney’s sexual abuse scandal shocked her and she also said that she won’t allow her daughter Genevieve to become a gymnast until there’s some change.
My daughter is not even three but I hope that she never shows an interest in gymnastics unless there are major changes. https://t.co/IbEZVQxYCE

Jen also shared a post where she revealed that her four-year child wanted her parents to vote for someone who likes kids and animals and is strong. You can watch the post down below. It seems that Vive has a knack for finding a reliable and good politician.

What is she up to these days?
Vive’s mother is a renowned American commentator who has held up several positions in the government. Jen started her career as a political advisor in the early 2000s and worked on several campaigns. However, she gained a big rapport only after working as a traveling press secretary for U.S. Senator Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign.
After that, she started working for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign as press secretary. Later, she started working as a commentator for CNN on 7th February 2017. However, she left the network and joined the Biden-Harris team and got elected as the White House Secretary.
Vive’s father is also a government official who had worked in a lot of high-ranking positions. He was the Chief of Staff for Rep. Steve Driehaus from 2009 to 2011. He was also a White House Liaison and Deputy Chief of Staff for the U.S. General Services Administration from July 2011 to January 2013.
So, both of Vive’s parents have been working as government officials for more than two decades. Thus, they must have earned quite a lot of money and Vive must be living quite a lavish and comfortable life. At the present, she must be focused on her studies and learning many different things.
It is estimated that her father Greg’s net worth is about $1 million while her mother Jen’s total fortune is $30.65 million. Thus, Genevieve must be living quite a lavish and comfortable life as both of her parents are millionaires.
