"My heart is bursting. Frank Michael Gifford is here, confirming that our God is good and merciful and faithful. And he loves us!" she captioned the post.

Erika Gifford posted the same photo on her own account and said baby Frank was born Tuesday.

"Best day of our lives. At a whopping 8lbs 7oz three weeks early, Frank Michael Gifford, 'Frankie' has changed our lives forever. We have not stopped bursting with so much love and gratitude for God's most precious gift," the new mom wrote.

Erika Gifford said they named their son after Cody Gifford's late dad, Frank Gifford, and her late uncle Michael.

"Frank 'Frankie' after C's pops & Michael after my uncle who passed away last year at 61 whose name also means 'gift of God,'" she wrote. "Two strong men -- gone but never forgotten."
