Keen and Hill Have a Child Together
Keen keeps a low profile, while his wife took the spotlight during her tenure as a White House official. He nonetheless was her date to official events where Hill’s colleagues met him.
One such event he attended with Hill was the state dinner hosted by President Trump for the French President Emmanuel Macron in April 2018.
Still, they preserve the privacy of their family. Keen and Hill are parents to a daughter who is currently 12 years old.
