California Attorney General Kamala Harris engaged to L.A. attorney

(04-06) 13:30 PDT -- The Attorney General of the state of California is making some personal legal plans. Kamala Harris, who has been seeing Los Angeles lawyer Douglas Emhoff for about a year, she said Sunday, is engaged to be married.
Emhoff did the classic proposal thing - even dropping to one knee - in her South of Market apartment on March 27. Harris, who is sporting a round, simple diamond and platinum engagement ring, says they havent quite set a date, but itll probably be within six months and itll probably be intimate. I dont believe in long engagements, she said.
Emhoff is partner-in-charge of the L.A. law firm Venable LLP. The firms site says he has significant complex commercial litigation experience, particularly in media, advertising and entertainment litigation matters.
Harris description, when asked the best things about him, stressed other areas. He is incredibly smart, she said, and he has the best sense of humor.
Born in New York, he went to law school at the University of Southern California. Married once before, he divorced four years ago, and has two beautiful kids, said Harris, one in college and one in high school.
The two met on a blind date, set up by a close friend of Harris. They are both 49 years old, he older by a week.
She travels back and forth between Northern and Southern California for her work, as does he (his firm has an office in San Francisco). They plan to be bi-Californian, living in both places at once.
