Kamala Harris is a proud “Momala” after her stepdaughter Ella Emhoff’s college graduation.
On Saturday, the vice president shared a photo of herself and the model to congratulate her stepdaughter for her commencement from The New School’s Parsons School of Design in New York City.
Harris previously raved about her close-knit relationship with her stepchildren in August 2020, telling PEOPLE: “My children don’t call me stepmom, they call me Momala. We’re a very modern family. Their mom is a close friend of mine.”
Her husband Douglas Emhoff also expressed his pride over his daughter, posting a photo with the graduate in her cap and gown. “My darling Ella, we are such proud parents!” he wrote on Instagram Friday.
“We love you so much, and are very much looking forward to all you do in the future,” the proud dad added. “And, to the other Class of 2021 graduates out there, huge congratulations!”
