Now that Kamala Harris has been officially announced as Joe Biden’s running mate for the upcoming 2020 election, Americans are wondering about Harris’ out-of-the-spotlight husband, Douglas Emhoff.

Emhoff and Harris got married in 2014 in a Santa Barbara courthouse when Harris was serving as California’s attorney general. The couple was engaged for five months and Harris’s sister, Maya, officiated the wedding.

Though Emhoff and Harris have no children together, Emhoff has two adult-aged children, Cole and Ella Emhoff, from a previous marriage.

Emhoff works as an entertainment attorney and is a partner at the firm, DLA Piper. He works largely out of Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

Emhoff’s biography on DLA Piper’s website reads, “He represents large domestic and international corporations and some of today’s highest profile individuals and influencers in complex business, real estate and intellectual property litigation disputes.” He also represented the ad agency responsible for the “Taco Bell Chihuahua.”

Although Emhoff has remained out of the public eye, he did make headlines in June of 2019 during one of his wife’s events when she was still running for president. During the event, an animal rights protester rushed the stage and took the microphone from Harris. Emhoff was among the group of people who escorted the protester off the stage, and a picture of him from the scene became popular on social media.
