In September, Gifford's son Cody and actress Erika Brown married at the Giffords' Greenwich home. And the TV anchor says she could feel the presence of the kids' father, her late husband Frank, all around.

"At both weddings, we felt Frank just smiling," she told PEOPLE of the former NFL player, who died in 2015 at the age of 84. "He had an aerial view, I think."
