Cole and Ella Emhoff call Harris “Momala,” according to CNN.

The nickname, which rhymes with Kamala, has long had a shoutout in Harris’s Twitter bio, but was highlighted in a CNN profile on the six men (and counting) who could become the country’s first “first gentleman.”

Harris married her husband, lawyer Douglas Emhoff, in 2014, who had two children from his previous marriage. The two met on a blind date, according to CNN.
