Cody Gifford, the son of iconic TV presenter Kathie Lee Gifford and former football player Frank Gifford, grew up in the spotlight with his famous parents. His mom often spoke of Cody and his sister, Cassidy, while hosting "Today" and "Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee," allowing viewers to watch the kids become adults.
Cody Gifford had certainly grown up — he got engaged to his college sweetheart, Erika Brown, in May 2019. Brown is an actor and dancer, and she and Gifford at the University of Southern California; excited mom Kathie Lee broke the news of their engagement on her Instagram, accompanied by a photo of the couple.
As for Cody's aspirations, he has a behind-the-scenes career in Hollywood, and worked at Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions before moving over to Twentieth Century Fox as a writer's assistant. He has since launched his own company, Gifford Media Group, but he's appeared in front of the camera as well.
Aside from popping up on his mom's shows when he and his sister, Cassidy, were young, Cody also worked with Kathie Lee on Today as an intern. He co-hosted a segment called "Weekend Movie Preview," where he gave film recommendations and critiques, and Cody said his mom is "very, very supportive of everything I do".
