Kathie Lee Gifford‘s friends took to social media on Sunday to honor the TV personality’s birthday, and pay tribute to her late husband Frank Gifford, who would have turned 85 the same day.

“2 amazing people were born today xo all my love,” wrote Gifford’s Today co-host Hoda Kotb on Twitter.

Kotb shared a photo of Kathie Lee and the former New York Giants running back, who died last Sunday due to natural causes.

Just a day after Frank’s death, Kotb broke down in tears while talking about Frank on Today. The host has been publicly supporting Kathie Lee in the days following the tragic news.

Kathie Lee’s longtime friend Kris Jenner also sent her well-wishes on Sunday, sharing a photo with the star on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday to my beautiful friend Kathie Lee,” she wrote. “I wish you peace and understanding. I know it’s Frank’s birthday today too. I wish I was there with you today. Big hug my angel.”

Kathie Lee and Frank are the godparents to Jenner’s famous daughters with Caitlyn Jenner,Kylie and Kendall.
