Cody, the grown-up son of television presenter Kathie Lee Gifford, is the spitting image of his acclaimed father, Frank Gifford. 


Kathie Lee married Frank, a member of the NFL Hall of Fame, in October 1986. They shared two children — Cody and Cassidy.

In August 2015, Frank passed away from natural causes at their Greenwich, Connecticut home at 84 years old. In any case, his memory still lives on today, most notably through his son.



Cody is gaining attention in light of the fact that numerous individuals noticed he looks just like his late father.

In July 2018, Kathie Lee attended a gathering for the Hallmark Channel in Beverly Hills with her two children in tow.


During the event, Kathie Lee posted an Instagram photo of herself with Cody and Cassidy. Plenty of fans noted that Cody bears a striking resemblance to his dad.

"So many people were saying, 'Gosh, Cody looks just like Frank now.'''


"I see so much of Frank in Cody," one user wrote.

"Cody looks like his dad!" added another.

Someone else wrote, "Cody is looking more and more like his Dad."


Kathie Lee's fellow attendees at the Hallmark Channel gathering couldn't help but point out Cody's incredible likeness to Frank as well.

"So many people were saying, 'Gosh, Cody looks just like Frank now,''' she told TODAY. "He really does."


In May 2019, Kathie Lee took to Instagram to announce that Cody is engaged to Erika Brown.


Meanwhile, Cassidy, who is an actress known for "God's Not Dead," "The Gallows," and "Time Trap," also shared the excellent news.



In an interview with PEOPLE following his father's death, Cody said:

"The great [New York Giants co-owner] Wellington Mara once called dad 'the son any father would love to have and the father any son would be proud to have.' He was right. God blessed me beyond words."

Frank competed in five league championship games and was named to eight Pro Bowls during his career. In 1977, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

After retiring as a player, he became a sportscaster, known for his work on "Monday Night Football" and the "Olympics."
