Kathie Lee Gifford is daytime television royalty. Her daughter, Cassidy, appears to be following in her footsteps. Not only has she just begun her own Hollywood career as an actress, but she looks just like her famous mama:
Also pictured here is her brother, Cody, who is a handsome chip-off-the-old-block.
Their father, Frank Gifford, passed away in 2015 after a battle with brain cancer. The tragedy brought the Giffords even closer together.
Here’s an old family shot:
It’s easy to see where Cassidy and Cody get their good looks. And both are following closely in their parents’ footsteps.
Cody is a football player like his father. Cody was a wide receiver at the University of Southern California, and Frank played for the New York Giants, where he won MVP. Also like his father, Cody is now a television producer.
Meanwhile, Cassidy is finding acclaim on the small screen. Cassidy is starring in “Like Cats and Dogs” on the Hallmark Channel. The show is about a man who loves cats (but hates dogs) and a woman who loves dogs (but hates cats). However, these two strangers end up having to share a vacation home together due to a mix-up with the rental company, and soon their bickering turns to romance.
Cassidy has also appeared in a number of other movies, including “God’s Not Dead,” “Twisted Sisters,” “Caged No More” and “The Gallows.”
Cassidy doesn’t just have a famous mother. She also has some famous friends. Kendall and Kylie Jenner are her godsisters.
In fact, the Giffords were once offered to star in their own reality show much like Kardashians. However, they turned it down…which might explain why Cassidy and her brother seem so down-to-earth and grounded.
