Kamala Harris' husband, 55, is hot-shot entertainment lawyer

Doug Emhoff has the right to think he has led a successful life. 

He owns three houses in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington and has built a career representing huge entertainment conglomerates from the ground up - allowing him to bring home an annual salary of more than $1 million.

But for now, he is content to put all of his achievements in the background as he basks in the accomplishments of his wife, who could very well become the first ever female vice president of the United States.

Next week Emhoff, 55, and Kamala Harris will celebrate their sixth anniversary. But this will be no time for a leisurely romantic candlelit dinner.  

Instead, they will be busy on the campaign trail as he dedicates the next few weeks of his life to getting his wife and Joe Biden elected to the White House.

Emhoff, who is exactly one week older than Harris, was born in Brooklyn, New York, but as a teenager his parents Mike and Barb moved to southern California where he has lived ever since. 

He would be the first Jewish spouse of a president or vice president if the Democrats beat Donald and Mike Pence in November.

They hit it off immediately when he texted her from courtside at an LA Lakers game. She replied ‘Go Lakers’ despite being a Golden State Warriors fan.

The next morning he called her while she was at the gym before work. ‘I had an early meeting and as I was driving to work, I couldn’t get you off my mind,’ he told her later.

‘I kept saying to myself “It’s 8:30 am, it’s way too early to call her. That would be ridiculous. Don’t be that guy. Don’t call her. Don’t do it.’

But he called anyway and left a long, rambling message. He thought he had ruined his chances so badly that he even considered leaving a second rambling message explaining the first.

But Harris — who still has the message saved on her phone — found it ‘endearing.’ She called him back at lunch and they talked for an entire hour.

‘It sounds corny, I know, but the conversation just flowed,’ Harris wrote in her memoir The Truths We Hold. ‘I remember us cracking each other up, joking and laughing at ourselves, just the way we do now.’ 

They went out a few times and first went public with their budding romance at a speech she gave on the ills of truancy — ‘not exactly what most people think of as a romantic date,’ she wrote.
