As Kathie Lee Gifford turns 71 this year, memories of her previous birthday come to mind. Surrounded by family, including her beloved grandkids, Kathie’s celebration was highlighted by heartfelt tributes from her daughter Cassidy Erin Gifford and daughter-in-law Erika Gifford on social media.

Erin shared a touching photo that featured herself, Kathie, and her brother Cody, accompanied by a caption that read, “Beyond thankful for the woman, believer, and mother you are.” This was followed by a heartwarming image of Kathie doting on baby Finn Thomas Wierda.

Erika also joined in with her own tribute, sharing a similar photo but with herself in place of Erin. They held up a sonogram of Kathie’s soon-to-arrive grandchild, Ford Matthew Gifford, and described her as “the greatest bubbe and most fun of humans!” Erika’s post also included a sweet image of Kathie holding her grandson Frank, wrapped in a white bathrobe emblazoned with “Gifford 16.”

This tribute was a touching nod to Kathie’s late husband, Frank Gifford, a former NFL player who passed away in 2015 and had been diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Such moments illustrate the special bond Kathie shares with her family, who have affectionately given her the nickname “Bubbe,” reflecting her cherished role as a grandmother.

In a 2022 episode of TODAY with Jenna and Hoda Kotb, Kathie shared the story behind her nickname “Bubbe.” Originating from the Yiddish term “Bubbalah,” which means a Jewish grandmother, the name also has variant forms such as bubbe, bubbie, or bubbeh. Kathie chose the simplest form, feeling “Bubbie” would be easier for a baby to say.

Now at 71, Kathie Lee Gifford continues to inspire with her vitality and beauty. Her youthful glow and energy can be attributed to a lifestyle focused on healthy eating, regular physical activity, and a positive outlook on life. She’s embraced each day with grace and enthusiasm, proving that age is just a number.
