Gabrielle Giffords interview with Diane SawyerTonight ABC will air the first TV interview with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head at a Tuscon grocery store back in January. In 'ABC News Special: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords,' Diane Sawyer sits down with Giffords and her husband, astronaut Commander Mark Kelly, to talk about the ordeal and her painful road to recovery. Amazingly, when Sawyer asks how she feels, Giffords replies "Pretty good!"

The special also includes some of the many hours of footage recorded by Kelly in hospital during his wife's long ordeal and rehabilitation. The footage documents landmark highs, such as her first words, and lows, like the discovery of what happened that fateful day in Tuscon. It also includes interviews with Giffords' closest confidants, including her mother, who says "I think Gabby now has a message that exceeds the political one."

Watch a preview of tonight's special after the jump.
