Ever since Kathie Lee Gifford found out that her and late husband Frank Gifford's son, Cody Gifford, 32, and his wife, Erika Brown, were expecting their first child, she's been counting down the days until she officially becomes a grandma.
"You know what, I'm not excited for me, weirdly. I'm so excited for my son and his wife, and for my daughter [Cassidy, 28], who's gonna be an aunt," she gushed to Entertainment Tonight. "I'm just sort of watching it all. And I'm going to get excited the day that baby is put into my arms. I don't know if it's a boy or a girl — they don't know and they don't want to, they're doing it the old-fashioned way."
"Both of my children married well, and I've been praying for their spouses since I was pregnant with them. You start to pray for God's best for your children, even while they're being woven in your womb," the mom-of-two, 68, shared. "I never thought I'd have children because I had married late to Frank, and he didn't want more children. And so I was just blessed to have two beautiful ones."

The expecting parents dated for seven years before getting engaged, tying the knot in a small ceremony in September 2020. They had a bigger celebration the following year.
