O’s gal pal up hit The Early Show this morning and said:

“It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother,” King explained. “She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away.”

Gayle explains that her bestie wasn’t even in town for the birth saying:

“Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born.”
