Doug was born on Oct. 13, 1964, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Jewish parents. So not only will he be the first second gentleman come Inauguration Day, but he’ll also be the first Jewish spouse of a U.S. vice president. Pretty cool, right?
Here’s a photo of Doug and his parents from July 2019.
In September 2020, Doug posted a family photo via Instagram, writing, “This Rosh Hashanah, I’m re-committing myself to do everything I can to help heal our nation & repair the world. My new year’s wish is that you will join me. From my family to yours, Shana tova! P.S. throwback pic of the fam when we could all be together — miss you, love you.”
