WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’s husband, Douglas ‘Doug’ Emhoff, is set to become America’s first “second gentlemen.”
This marks the first time a vice president has had a male spouse.
Harris married Emhoff, a partner at law firm DLA Piper in 2014. Emhoff has two children from a previous marriage. The children affectionally call Harris, “Momala.” Emhoff attended USC Gould School of Law and California State University – Northridge.
Emhoff tweeted saying he was “so proud” of his wife, after Pennsylvania was called by the Associated Press for the Biden-Harris ticket.
Emhoff was on the campaign trail for his wife’s campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2019. He later campaigned for the Biden-Harris ticket once Biden selected Harris as his running mate in August 2020.
