Kathie Lee Gifford described her reaction when she found out that her late husband’s name would be given to her first grandchild. She also mentioned that her grandson Cody had “never gotten over” his father’s death in 2015 when Cody was just 32 years old. Cody’s father passed away at the age of 85.
Kathie Lee Gifford Was Surprised By Her Grandchild’s Name.
She was taken aback when Cody named her after her father, she remarked. It was a surprise to me.” But she believes that he has never been able to get over the fact that his father passed away while he was still so young, and he still looks up to him as a hero.
The former presenter of the Today show, who just became a grandmother, revealed on the show that she chose a name for her granddaughter by looking to her family’s Jewish heritage for guidance.
On the program “Today with Hoda and Jenna,” she explained, “I have a fantastic friend down here and his Israeli mother, and I asked her, ‘What’s a proper word for a Jewish grandmother?'” Following that, she utters the word “Bubbalah.” Hello, my name is Bubbie.’ The phrase “cherished one” is translated literally from the Yiddish as “Dearest One.”
After the delivery, Kathie said she was impressed with Erika’s performance and how Baby Frank “bawls” just as Cody did when he was first born. She added, “I’m incredibly thrilled for Erika,” and I couldn’t agree more. “What an amazing job she did!” Because the infant is already nursing, there is no need to be concerned about its nutrition.
After a few minutes, Cody began to cry in an infantile manner, as if he were a baby once more. On Tuesday, Erika Gifford and Kathie Lee’s son Cody became parents to a baby boy. The couple’s first child was given to Frank Gifford, after Kathie Lee Gifford’s late husband and son of the legendary NFL and broadcasting figure Frank Gifford. Frank Gifford was also the name of Kathie Lee Gifford’s late husband.
People magazine was the first publication that Kathie Lee spoke to after the news that she would be a grandmother. She said that her son’s wedding to his “beautiful wife,” as she described her daughter-in-law, was a happy time for her to celebrate. Her grandson was born recently.
She wrote, “My heart is bursting at the seams.” Frank Michael Gifford is still alive is evidence that the God we serve is gracious, merciful, and dependable. “And he cares for us!”
Frankie Gifford was born to Cody and Erika Gifford in 2021 during the Labor Day weekend, which was less than a year after the couple had tied the knot. Erika posted photos and videos to Instagram during the delightful event to document it. Erika scribbled down in her journal, “Best day of our lives.” Frank Michael Gifford, also known as “Frankie,” weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces when he was born three weeks prematurely.
As a family, we continue to be filled with love and gratitude for the greatest gift that God has given us. The actress thanked everyone for their prayers and kind words, saying, “Thank you very much for your wonderful comments.” He is so cute that there are no words to explain how cute he is. “Our work consumes every waking moment of our lives,”
After some time had passed, Kathie Lee shared a picture of the joyful couple on her own Instagram page. The former Today show anchor captioned a picture of the young family with the phrase, “My heart is bursting.”
Frank Michael Gifford is here today to confirm that our God is good, merciful, and steadfast in his love for us. After the birth of her first grandchild, Kathy Lee Gifford took to Twitter to celebrate her little bundle of joy, describing them as “8 pounds, 8 ounces of perfect beauty.”
