ABC Offers Another Glimpse of Exclusive Interview With Giffords' Husband

News

"If I hold her hand, she'll play with my wedding ring."

Ahead of Diane Sawyer's full interview with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' husband Mark Kelly, ABC is releasing some encouraging excerpts of the sit-down that not only ensures more viewers, but also fulfills the public's rabid hunger for any information regarding the congresswoman's condition.

Today, Kelly gave America another spoonful, talking about how he's convinced Giffords recognizes him, and telling another heartwarming story about the couple's interaction:

"If I hold her hand, she'll play with my wedding ring," he told Sawyer. "She'll move it up and down my finger. She'll take it off. ... She'll put it on her own finger. She'll move it to her thumb. And then she can put it back on my finger.

"The reason why I know that that means she recognizes me is because she's done that before. She'll do that if we're sitting in a restaurant. She'll do the same exact movements."

Last night, ABC released part of the interview in which Kelly talks about Giffords reaching over and giving him a neck massage:

The full interview airs tonight on ABC at 10 p.m. ET.
