Disclosed in the above article GQMr. Douglas Emhoff (56 years old), expressed pride in his wife Kamala Harris, and said that participation in the campaign of Mrs. Harris has given him a new experience in politics.
“The moment I met Kamala, I knew that I was in love. Not only because Kamala is a warm, funny, kind woman, but also because she is determined to fight for the things she believes in, ”said Emhoff.

According to the Daily MailMs. Harris and Mr. Emhoff met through matchmaking in 2013, when Harris was the Attorney General of California, and Mr. Emhoff was a prominent lawyer in Los Angeles.
The couple married in 2014, and together raised two of Douglas’s stepchildren, Cole and Ella.
After Mrs. Harris accepted participation in the campaign of Mr. Joe Biden, Mr. Emhoff quit and campaigned with his wife.
“I realized that when I first entered Kamala’s world, I felt closer to my wife,” said Emhoff. “I noticed how much effort Kamala made, how pressured she was. I feel like I understand and admire her more. “

As America’s first “Second Lady”, Mr. Emhoff hopes and predicts that there will be many others behind him. Ms. Harris herself is also the first woman, the first African-American to be a Vice President of the United States.
“It reminded me of a very fond story Kamala had about his mother, Mrs. Shyamala. She once told her daughters: You may be the first, but it’s best you won’t be the last. I want the same thing with me too. I may be the first Second Lady, but I know I won’t be the last. ”

While Ms. Harris has had an illustrious career, with inspirational stories, Mr. Emhoff himself is also an extremely successful person, going up on his own feet.
Before leaving his job, Mr. Emhoff worked as a lawyer specializing in the entertainment industry, with an annual salary of up to $ 1 million.
Mr. Emhoff – exactly a week older than Harris – was born in Brooklyn (New York), and moved to California as a teenager.
Mr. Emhoff and Mrs. Harris are matched by a close friend of the female Vice President, PR expert Chrisette Hudlin.
Their relationship began after Mr. Emhoff texted Ms. Harris during a Lakers match. “Fighting,” said Ms. Harris, even though she is a fan of the Golden State Warriors.
The next morning, Mr. Emhoff called Mrs. Harris early, while Mrs. Harris was exercising.
“I had an early meeting, but while driving to work, I couldn’t stop thinking about you,” Mr. Emhoff told Mrs. Harris after the two became close. “He kept saying to himself: It’s only 8:30 in the morning, it’s too early to call her. That would be very insensitive. Don’t call her! “
But in the end, Mr. Emhoff still called and left a rambling message.
He thought he had ruined his chances, and was so confused that he planned to send Ms. Harris another text of explanation.
But Mrs. Harris – who still keeps her husband’s message – thinks it is a lovely memory.
Mrs. Harris called Emhoff back at noon, and the two chatted for an hour.
“It sounds corny, I know, but the conversation goes on,” Mrs. Harris wrote in her memoir. The Truths We Hold.

Less than a year later, Mr. Emhoff proposed. But at that time, Harris was thinking about Thai food.
When Mr. Emhoff said that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Harris, she replied: “That’s great, darling. Should we eat chicken or shrimp with pad Thai? “
It wasn’t long before Harris realized that Mr. Emhoff was kneeling in front of her.
The couple married on August 22, 2014, with rituals combining Indian and Jewish culture (Ms. Harris is of Indian descent).
This is Emhoff’s second marriage. Before that, Mr. Emhoff had a marriage with film producer Kerstin Mackin.
Mr. Emhoff’s two stepchildren love Mrs. Harris very much. They call her “Momala”, because they don’t like the word “stepmother”. Ms. Harris also has a close relationship with her husband’s ex-wife, Mrs. Mackin.
