Cassidy’s pregnancy announcement comes just over two years since she and Ben got married back in June 2020. The lovebirds had a memorable backyard wedding that included a lot of outdoor fun. Kathie Lee expressed her joy by sharing an Instagram photo of herself posing on top of a tractor and captioned it with, “When the mother of the bride can’t contain her joy!!!”

Cassidy and Ben’s first child will be the second grandchild for Kathie Lee. The star is already a doting grandmother to her son Cody Gifford and his wife Erika‘s son Frank, who was born in May. “My heart is bursting. Frank Michael Gifford is here, confirming that our God is good and merciful and faithful. And he loves us!” Kathie Lee wrote alongside a photo of the new parents posing with their bundle of joy in the hospital at the time. Frank was named after Cody’s father and Kathie Lee’s former husband, Frank Gifford, who died in 2015.
