Who is Ella Emhoff? (Kamala Harris’ Stepdaughter) Biography, Wiki
Ella Emhoff is Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter and Doug Emhoff’s daughter. She and her brother Cole Emhoff are the product of Doug Emhoff’s first marriage. Harris has been their stepmother for six years. Now that Harris is on the Democratic ticket as Joe Biden’s choice for vice president, it’s likely that many Americans will show interest in Harris’ self-proclaimed “modern family.”
Emhoff is a student at the Parsons School of Design in New York, according to LinkedIn. He is expected to speak at the Democratic National Congress Wednesday evening in support of his stepmother.
Harris married Doug Emhoff in a courthouse in Santa Barbara on August 25, 2014. According to the wedding announcements, Harris’ sister Maya Harris moderated the ceremony. This was Harris’ first marriage and Emhoff’s second marriage. Harris not only won a husband that day but also two stepchildren at Cole and Ella Emhoff.
In a 2019 interview with Elle Magazine, Harris talked about her step-parent experience and revealed that her stepchildren were named after Ella Fitzgerald and John Coltrane. Harris said:
Children need consistency; I didn’t want to insert myself into their lives as a temporary fixture because I didn’t want to disappoint them. There’s nothing worse than disappointing a child.
So, we took it slow, and Doug and I put a lot of thought into when and how I would first meet the kids. And that meant waiting. As we waited, anticipation grew. When the day finally came, I had butterflies in my stomach. The plan was to go to a seafood hut off the Pacific Coast Highway called the Reel Inn, a favorite of the kids.
… Cole and Ella could not have been more welcoming. They are brilliant, talented, funny kids who have grown to be remarkable adults. I was already hooked on Doug, but I believe it was Cole and Ella who reeled me in.
Harris also paid tribute to Cole and Ella’s mother and Doug’s first wife Kerstin Emhoff. “Getting to know Cole and Ella is knowing that their mother Kerstin is an amazing mother. Kerstin and I did this ourselves and we are very good friends. He and I were a duo of cheerleaders in the stands at Ella’s swimming matches and basketball games, often to Ella’s embarrassment. Sometimes we joke that our modern family is almost a little too functional. ”
Cole and Ella Emhoff call Harris “Momala” many times. He prefers this to the term “stepmother”.
Ella Emhoff is a student at Parsons School of Design in New York. Her Instagram page reflects her various creative endeavors, primarily painting and clothing design.
Emhoff also has its own website where it sells personalized creations. It sells customized trousers, trousers and underwear, undershirts, crochet bucket hats and tote bags. Although it doesn’t set a price for its ceramics and paintings, it has tabs.
In addition to his passion for painting and knitting new clothing creations, Emhoff also has a small acting resume. He appeared in Bo Burnham’s 2014 production “Repeat Stuff”. He announced the cameo on his Instagram page and wrote: “Go to Repeat Stuff by @boburnham Spoiler I die”
It’s unclear how Emhoff and Burnham knew each other.
Emhoff’s only brother is Cole Emhoff. He attended Colorado College as an undergraduate student from 2013 to 2017 and has since returned to the state of California to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
According to LinkedIn, Cole Emhoff worked for William Morris Endeavor, a highly rated talent agency from 2018 to 2019. During his time there, he worked as an assistant to two representatives. Now, he works as an executive assistant at Plan B Entertainment.
Ella Emhoff doesn’t often post about her family members on social media, but she paid homage to her brother in 2017. “Happy birthday cole !!!! is easily the coolest brother and best friend. I love and miss you 😍😍😍”
Emhoff occasionally posts political posts on his Instagram Stories, all representing a liberal political stance. On Wednesday, he shared a post by someone else:
For anyone who thinks casual transphobia and jokes about gender are funny, this is what trans people, especially trans women of color, deal with. This and worse. At least 18 trans people have been murdered in the US this year. Probably more but we don’t/can’t know for sure.
Neither Emhoff nor her brother has posted publicly about Donald Trump’s presidency, nor about Biden’s presidential campaign.
