Gayle King's Daughter Grew up into a Gorgeous Lady and Looks so Similar to Her Mom
Gayle King’s daughter, Kirby Bumpus, has grown into a beautiful and smart woman.
Kirby, who looks as gorgeous as her mother, is also into advocacy, particularly in community health, as shown in her recent Instagram post.
“If you know me, you prob know I loooove a good meal, so I’m especially thrilled to have joined the SG team to advance our mission to build healthier communities by connecting people to real food!” reads part of her caption.
Her father, William Bumpus, was cut out of their lives after Gayle found him in bed with a naked woman more than two decades ago.
Kirby first caught the public eye as a little girl, seen alongside her mother, Gayle, a famous American TV personality and journalist. The 64-year-old veteran journalist is Oprah Winfrey’s close friend.
Kirby graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology and Psychology. She also studied at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health.
Today, Kirby, Oprah’s goddaughter, is helping in some advocacy. As of 2017, she works for Robinhood, the largest organization in the private sector, to fight poverty in New York City.
She has also been part of the Department of Health and Human Services, focusing on prevention policy. She also held the position of Associate Deputy Director for Policy in Michelle Obama’s anti-childhood obesity project “Let’s Move.”
On her Instagram, Kirby describes herself as a “food lover, health educator, new experience seeker, world traveler, tequila enthusiast, fitness fan, perpetual student, nature lover, mentor, and friend.”
ONE OF DC'S MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN
Kirby has quite a following as well, with more than 11,000 followers on Instagram.
The Hill newspaper included her in the “10th Annual 50 Most Beautiful People” list of Capitol Hill Workers, including White House staff. She ranked second in the list of most beautiful women in Washington D.C.
Kirby inherited her great looks from her mother, as pointed out by fans. Her father, William Bumpus, was cut out of their lives after Gayle found him in bed with a naked woman more than two decades ago.
He issued a public apology for Gayle, but only in 2016. He said:
“I have nothing but the utmost respect for Gayle and how she handled herself with grace. Despite the situation, she kept our children, as well as my relationship and involvement with them, as a clear priority.”
