- Gayle King is better known for being the co-anchor of the CBS News morning show ‘CBS This Morning,’ since 2012, and also because of her longtime friendship with media mogul Oprah.
- King has a grown-up daughter and son from her failed marriage to Bill Bumpus, and the girl, Kirby, looks like the carbon copy of her mother.
AmoMama was lurking around Instagram to see what we could find out about our favorite stars in the entertainment industry and clicking here and there we stumbled upon Gayle King’s daughter’s Instagram account, so we had to share with you.
Kirby Bumpus has grown to become a beautiful and bright woman, and according to the bio in her account, she’s a fitness lover, health educator, and mentor, and she runs a blog on fitness, nutrition and weight loss tips as well as inspirational posts to encourage women that might be starting their fitness journey.
According to her blog, Bumpus earned her BA in Human Biology and Psychology at Stanford University and MPH in Sociomedical Sciences from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
The 31-years-old beauty also leads health and wellness communications at Under Armour Connected Fitness, and she even worked in the White House under the Obama administration, when she was appointed as Associate Deputy Director for Policy for Michelle Obama’s anti-childhood obesity project, ‘Let’s Move.’
Kirby has surely followed her mother’s steps to become a successful woman, and just not in attitude, but also in appearance, since she looks like the carbon copy of King, according to many fans who comment under her photos on Instagram.
King, a close friend of Oprah, recently received a public apology from the father of her kids, who she found in bed with a naked woman 26 years ago; William Bumpus apology came a bit late, as he released a statement to Entertainment Tonight in 2016 saying:
‘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.’
‘I continue to be a work in progress and have spent the last 26 years striving to be a better man and father. I applaud Gayle's continued phenomenal success and friendship!’
We’re sure Kirby and her brother were more than glad for the fact that after so many years, their father finally apologized to their mother, and even though they have been keeping things friendly, we’re sure that helped to establish their relationship even more.
Gayle’s daughter and son have grown to be a handsome fella and a gorgeous lady, and we’re sure their mother is more than proud of them.
Do you agree with fans that say Kirby looks a lot like Gayle?
