Kamala Harris will soon become a household name given the increasingly resilient rumors of a potential 2020 presidential bid. This rising politician and lawyer, originally from Oakland, was named U.S. Senator from California in 2017. , she was the Attorney General of California, a position she held from 2011 to 2017.

Kamala is known for her refusal to back down or be silenced by her male contemporaries. An ever-resilient truth seeker, this Howard University graduate is a keen observer. Presidential rumors about the senator let her husband know what kind of person the first man in the United States might start.

Who is Kamala Harris’ husband?

His name is Douglas Emhoff, he has been Westcoast’s managing director at Venable LLP since 2006, according to his LinkedIn page. However, in early 2017, he took the bar in Washington DC and was sworn in on March 10 of that year. This decision definitely did nothing to calm the rumors of the presidency.

Like his wife, Douglas Emhoff is the kind of man who doesn’t let anything get in his way; a hot head of sorts. In an interview with Law360, he recounted an event that occurred during his early days as a lawyer. He had outright accused another lawyer of lying during a legal proceeding. Although he stands by his statement, he admits he could have handled it better. He now says he will archive the information and be ready to use it when the time is right and in the right way. Learning from his mistakes is certainly a positive trait for any potential first man in the United States.

In 2015, an LA Times report revealed that the couple had combined assets of between $1.5 million and $4 million. Sacramento Bee revealed their tax returns in 2016. She revealed that they paid approximately $450,000 in state and federal income taxes.

Emhoff and Harris are big fans of philanthropy. The report also revealed that they donated $32,947 to charity, including $10,000 to UNICEF.

Emhoff always tries to keep his followers on social media up to date on his family’s happenings. He regularly publishes articles about himself, his wife and his children.

The children, parents and family of Kamala Harris

Harris’ mother is a Tamil Indian. she emigrated in 1960 to Chennai, India. Her name is Shyamala Gopalan Harris and she was born in 1938. She was also a renowned breast cancer researcher. She died in 2009.

Her father is Donald Harris and is of Jamaican descent. He came to the United States from Jamaica a year after his mother in 1961 to do his graduate studies in economics at the University of California. He would later become a professor of economics at Stanford University.

The family resided in Berkeley, California. When Kamala was seven years old, her parents separated and her mother was given custody of her younger sister Maya. After the divorce, her mother moved them to Montreal, Quebec, where she found employment at the Jewish Teaching Hospital and McGill University. Much later, Harris returned to California, where she earned the title of Juris Doctor (JD) from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

While Kamala Harris was an assistant county district attorney in the 90s, she was in a relationship with Willie Brown. At the time, Brown was the Speaker of the California State Assembly. The relationship didn’t last, however, as they broke up shortly after Brown took over as mayor of San Francisco.

Harris’ next lover came in the form of Douglas Emhoff. They got engaged on April 7, 2014 and tied the knot four months later on August 22, 2014. Kamala and Douglas had met on a blind date scheduled by one of his close friends. The two married at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in August 2014. The ceremony was officiated by the senator’s sister, Maya, who also happens to be a lawyer, like Harris and Douglas.

Maya Harris is also an MSNBC political analyst. Kamala’s brother-in-law, Tony West, is a former senior official in the United States Department of Justice and is also Uber’s general counsel. The senator has a niece and two stepchildren due to her relationship with Douglas Emhoff.
