“If I had a chance to raise my kids again…”

Kathie Lee Gifford has a great career, a wonderful family, and fans’ love. What else does she need? But like any other woman, Kathie had her own ups and downs both in professional and personal life.

Gifford and her late husband have two children, son Cody and daughter Cassidy. Like most parents, Kathie is very proud of her kids, but they will never hear their mother to tell them so. Why? The Today star has her own reason.

Gifford said:

We don’t say ‘proud’ in our family, we never have. And I remember saying, ‘Cass, pride comes before the fall. A good book says that.’

Kathie admitted that if she had a chance to raise her son and daughter differently, she would change this one thing in her behavior.

The host said she regretted saying negative things about herself in front of her daughter.

I would stand in front of a mirror and say negative things about myself, and my daughter would hear it. And she said to me, ‘Mom, please don’t say that. It’s not true.’ And it affected her. She didn’t like it.

Gifford told in her interview with Today:

You can’t even imagine how your life is going to change until it is actually changing right before your eyes… That’s what happens when that little precious creature comes into the world and you’re looking at it. What did I ever think was a miracle before this?
