Kathie Lee Gifford Reveals Her Relationship Status

On August 9, 2015, it was announced that Kathie Lee Gifford’s husband, Frank Gifford, had died. “It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the sudden death of our beloved husband, father and friend, Frank Gifford,” the family said in a statement to the New York Post. The statement mentioned that Frank died of “natural causes” at his home in Connecticut, adding that they want respect and privacy. Since then, the widow has been asked about her love life.

“I had a friend of mine who asked me about Frank’s death a few years ago, he said, ‘I’m sorry, I think Frank was the love of your life right?'” she told People in 2019. “And I said, ‘until now.’ I was a little surprised by my response.” She added that she’s aware of being able to find love again, even unexpectedly, suggesting she’s optimistic about her future love life.

In October 2020, Kathie Lee opened up about her dating life. She told Page Six that she’s back in the dating game, but she hasn’t found “the one” yet. “If I fall in love again, it will be because God just made it possible,” she told media. And now it seems the former “Today Show” co-host may have found another great partner.

Kathie Lee Gifford keeps her love life private

Almost six years after her husband’s death, Kathie Lee Gifford announced that she is in a new relationship. In April 2021, she was interviewed by The Today Show co-hosts, who pointed out how happy she seemed. Gifford responded that she was in a relationship that was “nice and fun and healthy,” adding that she was really happy and didn’t want to mess things up by revealing too much. To this day, she finds keeping their relationship private is the best way.

“I have someone very special in my life,” the former co-host told People on Aug. 29, only balking at who the new love interest is. Gifford has kept her life low-key after moving to Tennessee following the death of her husband. “I’ve found that if I don’t talk about it, it stays special,” she added. “I found my personal happiness here, that’s the best way to say it.”

Instead of focusing on making her love life public, she’s been actively sharing another thing that makes her happy — her new and first grandson, Frank. On her Instagram page, the Today Show graduate shared her grandson as she posts videos and photos of her holding and playing with the baby.
