Kerstin, the ex-wife of Doug Emhoff, attended the swearing-in ceremony of Kamala Harris with her children. Kerstin is the CEO of a production company Prettybird. She got divorced from Doug in 2008 and has 2 children with Doug named Cole and Ella.
Kamala Harris on an earlier occasion, opened up about the kind of relationship she shares with Kerstin. She said that they are dear friends and are the duo of cheerleaders in the bleachers at Ella’s swim meets and basketball games.
Netizens noticed the supportive display of Kerstin and many even expressed their appreciation for the “blended” family.
Kamala Harris wore a purple dress and jacket designed by Christopher John Rogers. There were two other women dressed in purple- Hillary Clinton who wore a purple pantsuit and a ruffled top while Michelle Obama wore a varied shade of purple , a plum colour floor-length jacket, over a matching turtleneck sweater and wide -leg trousers designed by Sergio Hudson. It is said that it was not mere coincidence but an intentional choice of colour to evoke a sense of solidarity, bipartisanship and unity.
