"So thrilled to announce that my beautiful daughter, @cassidygiff is engaged to a wonderful man, Ben @letsgetwierda," she captioned a photo of the happy couple. "I am beyond the moon and stars. Thank you, LORD."

Stars were quick to congratulate the 66-year-old TV personality on the exciting news, with former co-star Hoda Kotb commenting, "Cass!!! Over the moon!!!" and Kris Jenner writing, "CONGRATULATIONS so so exciting!!!!"


Cassidy's engagement comes six months after another one of Kathie Lee's kids -- her son, Cody, 29 -- had popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Erika Brown, back in May.

"My son is engaged and I couldn’t be happier for him," Kathie Lee said on Instagram at the time.

Erika and Cody appeared to be there to celebrate Cassidy and Ben's recent engagement, with Erika posting a group photo with her future brother- and sister-in-law to give them well wishes on their joyous news.

"Congratulations to the sweet couple, B and Lil’ C! God is so good! πŸ’• you both," she captioned the pic.


It's been a big year for Kathie Lee Gifford, who left NBC's the "Today" show back in April after 11 years on the morning show. While it was an emotional departure, the longtime daytime television personality expressed that she was at peace with her big career decision, explaining that she was moving to Nashville to lean more into music and production.

"I wanted to be an actress and a singer," Gifford explained to AOL back in May. "I started writing when I was a child and that was all part of my original dreams. So, I’m not reinventing myself; I’m getting back to my original dreams. It’s a total full circle thing, and it’s so satisfying

"I didn’t want a break, I wanted to get back to the work that I’ve been dying to do," she added. "I’m moving into a brand new home in Nashville. I haven’t permanently moved there yet, because I’m still becoming a Tennessee resident, but all my work is basically based there in Nashville."
