The children are very welcoming to Kamala Harris and affectionately call their stepmother "S-Mamala" or "Momala". Harris has addressed their family situation in an interview and stated:
"We sometimes joke that our modern family is almost a little too functional, Our time as a family is Sunday dinner. We come together, all of us around the table, and over time we've fallen into our roles. Cole sets the table and picks the music, Ella makes beautiful desserts, Doug acts as my sous-chef, and I cook."
Emhoff usually remains out of the spotlight, however, a recent incident at Move On Forum brought him into the limelight. A protestor at that forum came into stage and tried to hackle the mike from Harris, Emhoff came on the stage to diffuse the situation and was captured scowling at the protestor.
Emhoff when not busy protecting his wife from protestor and litigating enjoys golfing and playing fantasy football.
