Many of the attendees at the party noticed the resemblance, according to Kathie.

Kathie also shared a photo of herself with her kids from the event on her Instagram page, and her fans also pointed out the same thing.
One fan, Ann Mclaughlin, wrote, ‘Cody is looking more and more like his Dad.’
Other fans also praised the host for her beautiful family.
Cody doesn’t really appear much in front of the cameras, unlike his mother. He has chosen to follow in his father’s footsteps and picked a career in football, playing at the University of Southern California. Afterward, he studied and earned a master’s degree at Oxford University.
Cody’s father, an NFL star, passed away on August 9, 2015, at the age of 84 due to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which is a degenerative brain disease.
At the time after his father’s death, Cody told People that Frank was his “ideal role model.”
“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,” he said.
Kathie and Frank were married for 29 years. Frank was her second husband.
Speaking about his death, Kathie expressed that it has been hard.
She said, “In some ways, it seems like yesterday, and in other ways, it seems like 15 (years). It’s just weird. You have waves."
Almost three years after losing her husband, Kathie opened up to Access Live and revealed that she is open to falling in love again.
