Kathie Lee Gifford gave her Instagram followers a sneak peek of what her family photo would look like going forward, in a new snap that features her children and their future spouses.
Kathie Lee Gifford has achieved a lot in her life, but none brings her joy like being a mother. She is the proud mom of son, Cody, and daughter, Cassidy.
Gifford's children are all grown-up and about to start their own families. The former TV personality gave her Instagram followers a sneak peek of what her family photo will look like once her children get married.

The mom-of-two shared a photo that shows her posing with Cody, Cassidy, and their future spouses. The former TV star's children stood by her right, while her future daughter and son-in-law stood to her left.
The group-of-five smiled for the camera, and Gifford, who looked beautiful in a brown dress and curly hair, captioned the post,
"Such a fun day competing on Celebrity Family Feud for charity… having a fun day with my kids and their future spouses."

The former NBC host is happy to see her children take the next steps in their lives. She was gleefully shopping for a wedding dress with Cassidy and gushed about it to Closer Weekly.
Gifford told the news outlet that it wouldn't take long to find a wedding dress. She noted that her daughter is a size zero, and since the wedding is in June, the mother-daughter duo have all the time they need.
The loss of the former NFL star and the loneliness she felt afterward informed the previous TV host's resolve to leave "Today" after 11 years.
Cassidy got engaged to Ben Wierda in November. The TV host turned movie producer was over the moon with the news and described her daughter's fiancé as a "Wonderful man."
Months earlier, in May 2019, Cody got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Erika Brown. Gifford shared the news on Instagram writing,
"My son is engaged, and I couldn't be happier for him and @missamerikabrown."
The former TV host shared her children with her late husband, Frank. He died in 2015 and was married to Gifford for almost three decades.
The loss of the former NFL star and the loneliness she felt afterward informed the Nashville resident's resolve to leave "Today" after 11 years. She made her last appearance in April 2019.
Cody and Cassidy had candid words for their mom as she hung up her presenting cap. They described their mother as the kindest person they know.
Gifford also set an example of hard work, dedication, and patience for her children. The siblings would need the latter and their mom for the next phase of their lives.
