Proud mama all around! Kris Jenner boasted about Kathie Lee Gifford's daughter, Cassidy Gifford, in a new Instagram post on Thursday, June 11, calling attention to the young actress' role in the upcoming horror movie The Gallows.

"Hey beauties!!!" Jenner, 59, wrote. "Follow my niece @cassidygiff she is amazing and her new movie comes out July 10th!!!! Annndddd you're welcome!!!!! #family #love #beautiful #proudmama xoxoxoxoxo."

A clip from the horror movie's chill-inducing trailer, which is styled similarly to The Blair Witch Project accompanied Jenner's Instagram post. The teaser features 21-year-old Cassidy in a dark room as she cries uncontrollably with a noose around her neck.

Her mom reacted to the trailer's release last month, tweeting that she was "so proud" of her daughter. "But terrified 2 see!" the Today show co-host added.

While recently discussing Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover on her morning show, Gifford noted just how far back the two families go. "I've known him since 1982," she said of Caitlyn (formerly known as Bruce Jenner). "Frank's known him since 1976. We've been around the world together on different family trips and things. I think everybody has heard that we're godparents to their two children Kendall and Kylie. So there's a familiarity, there's an intimacy there."

Given their history, the NBC personality, also mom to 25-year-old Cody, said she was sticking by the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars. "I love the family. I disagree with a lot of the decisions they've made through the years," she revealed. "But friends love you through thick and thin. Or else, they're not a friend."
