Would my children be considered biracial?

I am very confused about the race of my two beautiful children, Alexander and Elizabeth; I am half-white half-Asian, while my amazing SO is fully black. I've been wondering for quite a while if my children would generally be considered biracial or not. Thank you for reading.

I'm not sure why it matters, but bi = two. Therefore, biracial means of two races. So yes, it appears your children are of two races. If we want to get super technical, you could call it tri (meaning three) racial.....

Thank you for answering; I'd actually been wondering if they'd be called tri/multi racial, which is a reason why I'd asked.

I would call them "multi racial" if anyone is really nitpicking.
