Kamala Harris made history on Saturday, becoming the first woman to be elected as the Vice President of the United States. And her husband, Doug Emhoff, will now also have a place in the record books because he is set to serve as the first ever Second Gentlemen. Emoff, 56, will also be the Jewish person in American history to be married to a President or Vice President.
He celebrated Harris’ historic victory by wrapping her up in a warm embrace on Saturday morning, just minutes after news organizations called the election for her running mate, Joe Biden.
Emhoff shared a snap of the sweet moment to his Twitter account, and added the caption: ‘Proud of you’.
The couple, who are both aged 56, were set up on a blind date in 2013 and tied the knot the following year.
While Harris has had an illustrious career shattering several glass ceilings, Emhoff is a success story in his own right.
He works as a high-powered entertainment lawyer who brings home an annual salary north of $1 million
