Harris told about it on Emhoff's birthday in 2020, "The morning after our first date, @DouglasEmhoff emailed me a list of his available dates for the next couple of months. He said, 'I want to see if we can make this work.' We’ve been making it work ever since."
In an interview with Jane Pauley of CBS News' Sunday Morning in January 2020, Harris revealed that the date wasn't exactly blind, but that she had Googled her future husband before meeting him. "I did!" Harris said with a laugh, while Emhoff smiled and said, "Oh. This is a reveal!" "So, yes, my best friend set us up on a blind date. And she said, 'Just trust me. Just trust me.'
