Kamala Harris made history on Saturday and was the first woman to be elected Vice President of the United States.
And her husband, Doug Emhoff, will now also have a place in the record books, as he is supposed to act as the first second gentleman.
Emoff, 56, will also be the most Jewish person in American history married to a president or vice president.
He celebrated Harris’s historic win by hugging her in a warm hug on Saturday morning, minutes after news organizations announced the election for her runner-up, Joe Biden.
Emhoff shared a moment of the sweet moment on his Twitter account and added the caption: “Proud of you”.
The couple, both 56 years old, were founded on a blind date in 2013 and tied the knot the following year.
While Harris has had an illustrious career in which several glass ceilings were broken, Emhoff is a success story in its own right.
He works as a high profile consumer electronics lawyer bringing home an annual salary of more than $ 1 million.

Emhoff, who is exactly a week older than Harris, was born in Brooklyn, New York. In his teens, his parents Mike and Barb moved to Southern California, where he has lived ever since.
He and Harris were founded by Harris’ best friend, PR consultant Chrisette Hudlin, who told her, “He’s cute and he’s the managing partner of his law firm, and I think you will like him.”
They hit it off right away when he texted her from the court at a LA Lakers game. She replied ‘Go Lakers’ even though she was a fan of the Golden State Warriors.
The next morning he called her while she was at the gym before work.
“I had an early meeting and when I drove to work I couldn’t get you out of my head,” he said to her later.
“I kept telling 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. Do not do it. ‚
But he called anyway and left a long, rambling message. He believed he had ruined his chances so much that he even considered leaving a second message explaining the first.
But Harris – who still has the message on her cell phone – thought it was “adorable”. She called him back at lunch and they talked for an hour.

“It sounds cheesy, I know, but the conversation just went,” Harris wrote in her memoir, The Truths We Hold. “I remember driving each other crazy, joking and laughing at ourselves like we do now.”
They went out a couple of times and first went public with her burgeoning romance when she gave a speech on the evils of pregnancy – “not exactly what most people consider a romantic date,” she wrote.
Within a year, Emhoff – who says Bradley Cooper should play him when a movie is made about his wife – proposed, but even that didn’t work out.
Harris had other things on his mind. She was desperate for a favorite pair of pants that she had misplaced and longed for some Thai take-out.
When Emhoff explained that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, she replied, “That’s nice, honey, should we have chicken or prawns on the pad thai?” Only then did she notice that he was on one knee.
They were married on August 22, 2014 in the Santa Barbara Courthouse.
“In keeping with our Indian and Jewish heritage, I put a garland of flowers around Doug’s neck and he stomped on a glass.” Harris wrote.

Emhoff has two grown children, Cole and Ella, from his previous marriage. Harris is close to the children they call momala because they don’t like the term stepmother
It is Emhoff’s second marriage. He was previously married to the film producer Kerstin Mackin, with whom he shares two grown children, Cole and Ella.
Harris got close to the kids they call momala because they don’t like the term stepmother.
She is also friends with her mother Mackin.
“We really hit it off,” Harris wrote in her book. “We sometimes joke that our modern family is almost a little too functional.”
It is unclear what role Emhoff will play in the White House, but he has been an active advocate of Harris for months.
He was always by her side and got close to Jill Biden, who previously served as second lady.
