Is there anything more special than having grandchildren? I can’t think of anything.
Seeing your children become parents, especially for the first time, is a very rewarding experience.
Kathie Lee Gifford, who used to be a co-host on Today, has been happy and proud ever since she found out she was going to be a grandmother. But she said that they were celebrating not because of her, but because of her son’s beautiful wife and their love for each other. This is a good thing that God has done in His own way and at His own time.”
Thursday, Gifford posted a picture of her five-month-old grandson Frank to Twitter.
She wrote, “My sweet little bubbela wants you all to have a blessed Thursday.” “He wishes you happiness and good health!”
Frank “Frankie” Michael Gifford was born on May 31 to Cody Gifford and Erika Gifford, who are Cody’s son and wife.
Erika told her Instagram followers the good news, calling it “the best day of our lives.”
“Frank Michael Gifford, “Frankie,” was born three weeks early and weighed a huge 8 lbs. 8 oz. We haven’t been able to stop loving and being thankful for God’s most precious gift.”
The couple started dating in 2013 and got married in 2020. They named their first child after Cody’s famous football player father, Frank Gifford.
“Frank “Frankie” is named after C’s dad, and Michael is named after my uncle who died last year at age 61 and whose name also means “gift of god.””
“Two strong men — gone but never forgotten.”
Kathie Lee also shared an adorable picture of her first grandchild on Twitter after he was born.
“What greater miracle is there than the miracle of life? I can’t hold back my happiness. Thank you God for the gift of little Frank Michael Gifford.”
Shortly after Frank was born, she went to the Today Show and talked to her old coworkers. She told them she had a different idea for what her grandchildren should call her.
Kathie Lee said she asked a friend whose mother is Israeli what they call grandmothers there.
“What’s a good word for a Jewish grandmother?” I asked her. At the time, Kathie Lee said. “And she goes, ‘Bubbalah. It’s Bubbe.'”
“It means “dearest one,” which is the same as “cherished one.”
Kathie Lee’s choice was easy because “a little kid only says “Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh,”” she said.
“I think it will be simple. Bubbie.”
How adorable! There aren’t many better things in the world than being a grandparent.
If you love being a grandparent, please tell us about it.
