Kathie Lee Gifford had a memorable Mother’s Day weekend.

The former Today show host, who left the NBC morning news program after 11 years in April, revealed on Instagram, Saturday, that her 29-year-old son Cody had popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Erika Brown, 27.

“My son is engaged and I couldn’t be happier for him and [Erika],” Kathie Lee, 65, wrote, captioning a photo of her oldest child kissing his bride-to-be as she showed off her sparkling ring.

Kathie Lee’s daughter, Cassidy, also shared the happy news. “So excited for what God has in store for these two,” she wrote. “The most excited to welcome my already sister @missamerikabrown into the craziness ❤️.”

It appears Brown didn’t see the engagement coming. “What started as a fairly normal weekend has turned into the BEST EVER,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “Couldn’t be happier!”

“The biggest thank you to everyone for your support,” she added, with hashtags “#thebestgiFFt” and “#loveisthegreatestgiFFt” (a play on Cody’s last name and the name of Kathie Lee’s wine, GIFFT).

To cap the weekend off, the newly-engaged duo took in a Florence + the Machine concert in Santa Barbara, California — Brown quoting the band’s lyrics on her Instagram story. “It’s such a wonderful thing to love,” she wrote.
