Not only is she a loving mom to her two children, but this year she became a grandmother for the first time after her son welcomed son Frank Michael with wife Erika Brown Gifford back in May.

The tight-knit nature of the Gifford family made Thanksgiving somewhat bittersweet for the former host, who was unable to spend it alongside her beloved grandchild.

The star expressed just how much she missed being able to spend the holidays with Frank, who is named after her late husband Frank Gifford, after her daughter-in-law shared a sweet glimpse of the baby decked out in festive clothing.

Erika took to Instagram to share an adorable photo in which her son is seen wearing a too cute for words knit hat crocheted to be the face of a turkey, while he is adorably grabbing onto his foot and bringing it towards his mouth.

"Our plates (metaphorically and literally) and hearts are so full," she wrote, adding that: "Been gobbling this little [turkey] up every chance we get."

Though they may live in different states, Cody always has family near him, even if in spirit, as he lives in the family home in Greenwich, Connecticut his mom shared with her late husband, which Kathie told People in 2021 "makes me so happy."
