Kathie, 68, shared an adorable photo of Cody, 32, and Erika in hospital with their baby on Instagram.
The presenter captioned it: “My heart is bursting. Frank Michael Gifford is here, confirming that our God is good and merciful and faithful. And he loves us!”
She shared a second snapshot of baby Frank swaddled in blankets on Twitter and added: “What greater miracle is there than the miracle of life?
“I cannot contain my joy. Thank you God for the gift of little Frank Michael Gifford. 8 lbs. 8 oz. of sheer beauty.”
Erika shared the same photos and wrote, “Frank ‘Frankie’ after C’s pops & Michael after my uncle who passed away last year at 61 whose name also means ‘gift of God’.
“Two strong men – gone but never forgotten.”
The dancer added: “At a whopping 8lbs 8oz three weeks early, Frank Michael Gifford, ‘Frankie’ has changed our lives forever.
“We have not stopped bursting with so much love and gratitude for God’s most precious gift.
“Thank you so much to all of you for your prayers and sweet messages.”
Erika concluded: “He’s so SO cute and we can’t get enough of all of the snuggles from this lil’ guy. We are sincerely obsessed.”
Former Today co-host Kathie announced in December that Cody and Erika were expecting their first child.
In a sweet video shared on Instagram, the couple was seen dancing on their wedding day in September 2020.
The clip then cut to a positive pregnancy test and ended by revealing their baby was due in June 2022.
Kathie gushed at the time: “I am over a blue or pink moon!!! I don’t care which.
“So so happy for you both, @mrsamerikagifford, and for our family. Praise our living and loving God!”
Erika and film producer Cody began dating in college and got engaged in November 2019.
