Kathie Lee Gifford Shares Her Excitement for Daughter, Cassidy Gifford, After Welcoming Her First Child With Husband Ben Wierda

Kathie Lee Gifford is one happy grandmother as her family tree continues to grow. The 69-year-old TV personality recently celebrated the birth of her 2nd grandchild on June 24 when her daughter, Cassidy Gifford, welcomed her first child – a son named Finn Thomas Wierda – with her husband, Ben Wierda

The couple took to Instagram to share a photo of the newborn’s foot in the palm of Cassidy’s hand. She described the little one as their ‘whole entire world’ and believes he’s the ‘most precious gift’ – they added that they are ‘so madly in love’ with him already. They have yet to share a full photo of the newborn baby.

The pregnancy was announced in December 2022, just one week before Christmas Day – not a bad Christmas gift, huh? They made the announcement with a photo of their fireplace with a mini stocking in-between a large red stocking and a large white stocking. Now, they have a baby son to show for it!
