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.”
