Frank Gifford's Life in Photos

As the sports and entertainment worlds say goodbye to the legend, look back on his public achievements and private family moments


The couple welcomed their first child, son Cody (a.k.a. Codesville), in 1990. Kathie Lee had documented her pregnancy on her series Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee, and on the day Cody was introduced to the television audience, 41 percent of viewers in the show's home base of New York City tuned in – the syndicated program's highest N.Y.C. share ever. Kathie Lee was happy to share her son's every move, though had one mandate from the day he was born: "We want Cody to play gentleman sports – no boxing, no football, no hockey," she said, citing Frank's four football-induced nose breaks. "As his mother, I'd like to protect his face."
