Kathie Lee Gifford's family is growing! The former Today Show host first became a grandmother in May of 2022 after her son, Cody Gifford, welcomed his first son, Frankie. Now, as she celebrates her grandbaby's first birthday, she is also celebrating the impending arrival of another two.

Cody, her son with late husband Frank Gifford, and his wife, Amerika "Erika" Brown, are expecting their second child together, coming this winter. The two tied the knot in 2020, after they started dating in 2013. 

The 33-year-old is the founder of the Gifford Media Group, through which he has produced, sold and developed television and film content for various networks and streaming platforms. He is Kathie Lee's first and only son with Frank, with whom she also had daughter Cassidy, who is also expecting!
