Uncanny! People can’t believe how much Kathie Lee Gifford‘s son, Cody Gifford, 28, looks like her late husband, Frank Gifford, in new photos. The buzz first started earlier this week when KLG posed with Cody and her 25-year-old daughter, Cassidy Gifford, at a Hallmark Channel party in Beverly Hills, CA.
“Best time with Cody and Cassidy @HallmarkChannel,” Kathie Lee, 64, later captioned an Instagram pic of the trio. Not only did KLG’s fans immedately start gushing about Cody’s grown up and very handsome appearance, but they also pointed out how much the Gifford kids look like their parents. “Cassidy looks like you,” one fan commented on the image. “And Cody is the image of Frank. Beautiful family.”
Then, on Wednesday, Aug. 1, the Today show‘s Instagram account posted a side-by-side photo of the father-son duo and asked fans if they think Cody and his late dad look alike.
“Do you see the resemblance between Frank and Cody Gifford?” the caption read and fans definitely agreed. “He looks like his dad,” one user wrote with another adding, “Good combination of both parents. Wonderful young man and product of two wonderful people!”
Kathie Lee’s beloved husband Frank sadly died nearly three years ago from naural causes at age 84. On the first anniversary of his death in 2016, the TV star recalled how hard it was to move forward following her spouse’s passing.
“I’ve gotten through this past year the way I’ve gotten through every day of my life: faithfully trusting God to do what God does, which is to show up, redeem, and restore,” she previously said. “God doesn’t promise you a year. He promises you a day at a time. He broke life into 24-hour periods because that’s all we can handle. The next day, you reach for your fresh cup of mercy that you need every bit as much as the day before.”
