Harold Ford Jr. and his first wife Emily Threlkeld have two kids Georgia Ford And Harold Eugene Ford III. Harold Ford Jr is an American financial managing director. 

The couple has been married for over fourteen years. Harold described his marriage as an interracial union and said that New York was easier to live in than Tennessee, which has a lot of racial tension.

In the North, their marriage is less likely to become a political talking point, but some have questioned whether it might be problematic for the BlackElectorate.

Who Is Harold Ford Jr First Wife Emily Threlkeld?

Harold Ford Jr. married his first wife Emily Threlkeld in 2008. 

Emily is currently a marketing consultant working from home. But she once had a glamorous job in the fashion industry, dressing celebrities on the red carpet on behalf of the designer Carolina Herrera.

She intended to work as a fashion designer. Instead, she earned a business and marketing degree from the University of Miami in 2003.

She began her career as a publicist for designer Nina Ricci and later served as Mario Grauso's assistant. By doing so, she got to explore both her passion and profession. 

Mario Grauso served as president of the parent company that controls the Carolina Herrera and Nina Ricci labels. There she oversaw a variety of tasks that included some mid-level advertising work, some VIP dressing, and some event planning.

In the end, she styled famous people like Renée Zellweger.

Ms. Ford added her flair while adjusting to New York's refined fashions. She dressed Jada Pinkett Smith in a form-fitting Herrera gold gown for the 2007 Academy Awards.

Emily is reportedly her husband's new director of research, though Ms. Ford clarified that's not quite accurate, she still assists him with research in her spare time. With his wife Emily and their two young children, Georgia and Harold III, Ford currently resides in New York City.

She was born on January 2, 1981, into a large family, which Time claimed needs a flowchart for outsiders to understand. 

She is the child of her mother, Deborah Beard, and father, Tom Threlkeld. However, when she was two years old, her parents got divorced.  Soon after, Ms. Beard wed Naples, Florida restaurant owner Vin De Pasquale. After almost 20 years of marriage, they got divorced in 2003.

The following year, Ms. Beard met Anson Beard Jr., her third husband, at a wedding in New Orleans. Anson is a well-known Wall Street investor and former chairman of Morgan Stanley.

Coincidentally it was the same wedding where Emily met Harold Ford Jr. He had a reputation at the time for being somewhat of a player in politics.

Although Ford now claims that Threlkeld and he were involved throughout his Tennessee Senate campaign, she was noticeably absent from the campaign trail.

Ford moved north, taking an apartment with Threlkeld in New York City's Flatiron District after he lost the election.

Merrill hired him, and according to numerous published reports, he married Threlkeld in front of an audience of about 300 people in Miami in 2008.

Harold Ford Jr Has Two Children, Georgia Ford And Harold Eugene Ford III

Harold Ford Jr. and his wife Emily Threlkeld are blessed with a son and daughter. 

His daughter, Georgia plays soccer at her school, as evidenced by Ford's recent tweet about her accomplishment. He congratulated his baby girl and her fantastic coach on their undefeated season.

Georgia was seen holding a trophy in the picture.

His son, Harold is the youngest of the child and is often pictured with the family on Ford's Tweets. He uploaded a family photo on several occasions, including his wife's birthday, Father's Day, and Election Day.

Harold, his son, is eight years old, and his daughter is possibly in her early teens.
