Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff have been married for six years, but if you ask Emhoff's kids, they're still in the honeymoon phase.

Cole, 26, and Ella, 21, are Emhoff's children from his previous marriage. Instead of calling Harris their "stepmom," they came up with the name "Momala."

In an interview with the New York Times' Jessica Bennett, they confirmed that Emhoff and Harris are every bit as adorable in real life as they appear in public.

"It depends on the setting," Cole said when asked to describe them as a couple. "Because Doug and Kamala together are like almost vomit-inducingly cute and coupley. I'm like, When is this going to wear off?"

"It's so insane," Ella added. "It's like the honeymoon phase forever. Like, the rest of the world gets to see it on social media, but we live that."
