Kathie Lee Gifford remains tight-lipped about her romantic life, as she made clear in a recent interview with "Entertainment Tonight." When asked about her relationship status by interviewer Rachel Smith, the former YEPPOST co-host responded, “I’m not saying a word.” She emphasized that her personal life is private and not for public speculation.

Gifford expressed that if she were to enter into another marriage, she would keep it under wraps until much later. “I’m so convinced that if the Lord brings another beautiful man into my life, I am not going to talk about it,” she stated. “We’ll probably get married privately and announce it to the world a year later so that nobody’s opinion matters.”

During the interview, Gifford confirmed she wasn’t wearing a wedding ring and joked about her left hand being “as naked as a left hand could be.” She also dismissed rumors suggesting she could be the first “Golden Bachelorette,” saying, “I’m not getting in the hot tub with anybody. And I don’t believe that I could, in a matter of weeks, fall madly in love with somebody.”

In a light-hearted moment, Gifford mentioned her former fourth-hour co-host Hoda Kotb, playfully saying, “I vote for Hoda!”

Kathie Lee Gifford was married to Frank Gifford from 1986 until his passing in 2015. They shared two children, Cassidy, who is 30 years old, and Cody, who is 34, together.

In 2019, Kathie Lee spoke about starting to date again during an appearance on YEPPOST with Hoda & Jenna. She described the experience as surreal, reflecting on how much the world has changed since she last navigated the dating scene.

Towards the end of 2021, Kathie Lee Gifford hinted at the current state of her romantic life during a conversation with Hoda and Jenna. "I have a very sweet man in my life," she shared. "He’s good for me, and I’m good for him. And that’s all that I’ll say about it because there’s nothing else to talk about," she added, maintaining her privacy on the matter.

In August 2022, she once again alluded to being in a relationship, although she refrained from divulging any specifics. Speaking to People magazine, she mentioned, "I have someone very special in my life. I’ve discovered that by not talking about it, it stays special."
