Purple Lobster’s signature Cheddar Bay Biscuits have a legion of cult-like followers, and Gayle King’s son Will Bumpus Jr. is amongst them.
In an Instagram put up on Sunday, the CBS This Morning host revealed that she has taken her now 32-year-old son to the seafood chain yearly on his birthday since he was eight years previous. She says the custom has continued since he was a baby as a result of “he LOVES the biscuits,” so that they’ve seen no motive to cease.
This 12 months, the mother-son pair was joined on the seafood franchise by King’s newly-engaged daughter Kirby Bumpus and Kirby’s fiance Virgil Miller.

“What have been you doing on this present day 32 years in the past TODAY at 1:50 pm?” King wrote within the caption of her put up. “I used to be giving beginning to fav son @willgb3m,” tagging Will’s Instagram profile. Will’s father is William Bumpus Sr., a Connecticut-based legal professional whom King was married to from 1982 to 1993.
The gallery of pictures she shared of the birthday outing included an image of her and Will wanting into Purple Lobster’s signature fish tank filled with stay lobsters, Will holding a biscuit, the whole crew smiling across the dinner desk, and a video of the waitstaff singing to an embarrassed birthday boy, which King referred to as “hilaaarious!”

For her personal birthday celebration in December of 2017, King opted for a selfmade meal along with her finest good friend Oprah Winfrey. The “nearly Weight Watchers-approved” dinner consisted of glazed carrots, dover sole meunière (“Gayle’s favourite”), skillet potatoes, cauliflower gratin, and butter lettuce salad with pears.
