Barack Obama Shares Special Moment With Kamala Harris On Inauguration Day

Inauguration Day is in full swing and the Obamas have made their presence felt throughout the ceremony. From the moment Michelle Obama stepped out of her car, she turned heads with her outfit. Her husband, Barack Obama, has now made headlines for a short message she shared with fellow former Senator Kamala Harris. As the two waited for the ceremony to begin, the first Black President fist-bumped the first Black Vice President and her husband, Doug Emhoff.

"[I'm] so proud of you," Obama told Harris, according to Nicholas Fandos of the New York Times.

Harris was not only joined by her former colleague, but she was also joined by members of her family. Harris's children and Emhoff's children were all present at the historic event. Not to mention, Harris's niece, Meena Harris, and her husband, Nikolas Ajagu, spotted as well.

After meeting with the former President, the Vice President took her oath and was sworn into office. Keeping her family in mind, Harris said during a recent interview that she would be thinking of her mother as she was sworn into office.

"I will be thinking about my mother, who's looking down from heaven. I will be thinking of all the people who are counting on us to lead," the Vice President said.

"When she takes the oath of office, little girls and boys across the world will know that anything and everything is possible. And in the end, that is America," Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Taking the oath is just the beginning of a long, joyous day for the Harris family. The Vice President and President Joe Biden will travel to the Arlington National Cemetery and lead a virtual parade.
