Dec. 6, 2012 - Manhattan, New York, U.S. - MICHAEL STRAHAN, with daughters ISABELLA AND SOPHIA, lights the Empire State Building green and tour the 86th floor Observatory and 103rd floor parapet in celebration of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ''Thanks and Giving'' campaign, Thursday, December 6, 2012.

You're not seeing double. The two adorable girls bundled up in hot-pink down coats are the twin daughters of Michael Strahan.

The "Live With Kelly and Michael" host headed to the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building with 8-year-olds Isabella and Sophia on Thursday.

The kids were on hand as their dad lit up the landmark in glowing green, in honor of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The sightseeing stop was a sweet moment -- and part of an event-filled, daylong tour of Manhattan filmed for Friday's show.

The former New York Giant took his girls on holiday expeditions that included visiting Santa Claus at Macy's, watching the skaters at Bryant Park, shopping at the famed FAO Schwarz toy store, and hitting up the American Girl store. That night the threesome took in "The Lion King" on Broadway.

On Wednesday night, the former NFL star had made a Broadway debut of his own -- appearing on stage for a production of the holiday comedy, "Elf."

Strahan seemed up for bringing his daughters to work and getting into the holiday spirit, telling the New York Daily News, "It's the nature of the show ["Kelly and Michael"] to get out and be part of the community in New York City, and for me it's just about having great experiences."

The twins certainly got a great day full of memories with dad.

The twice-divorced 41-year-old is the father of four: two kids, Tanita and Michael Jr., with his first wife; Wanda Hutchins; and the twins with his second wife, Jean.
