Nick Cordero and Amanda Kloots' Son Elvis Says His First Word — Find Out What It Is Here

Nick Cordero’s son recently said his first words, and it’s heartbreaking that the Broadway actor never lived to see that moment.

On July 27, Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, shared a video clip on Instagram showing their 13-month-old son Elvis Eduardo giggling while looking at his father’s photo and uttering his first words. Kloots captioned the sweet post:

"Elvis said his first words today!! Listen closely! He pointed at Nick in our new picture light and said 'right there."

Kloots, 38, went on to say that her son has not seen his father since March 30th, and that she was amazed that the little boy still remembered him and even gave his picture a kiss.

The ”Bullets Over Broadway” star died on July 5 due to coronavirus complications, as reported by People. He died after over 90 days of hospitalization at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

That death would do them apart after barely three years of marriage broke not only Kloot’s heart but those of the many people who have followed the couple’s journey. 

Kloots, a celebrity fitness trainer, has been updating her Instagram followers on her husband’s health and their son’s activities since the actor was taken to the hospital in late March.

Prior to Cordero’s passing, Kloots, who is herself a Broadway alum, shared with her followers videos showing Elvis taking his first steps, as reported by USA Today.

Kloots earlier disclosed that the Tony-nominated actor’s condition was initially thought to be pneumonia. His first COVID-19 test turned up negative. A later test confirmed he was positive for the virus.

The couple tied the knot in September 2017 and welcomed their son in June 2019, as reported by People. They met while working together on the 2014 musical “Bullets Over Broadway.”

For his performance on the musical, Cordero received a nomination for a Tony award. At the time they were working together,  Kloots was still married to her first husband.

When she was 32, she divorced her first husband. Meanwhile, Kloots and Cordero became engaged in March 2017, with him getting down on one knee at a castle in Woodstock, New York. 

He popped the question ahead of her birthday, in a spot overlooking the Hudson Valley. Kloots recalled that they exchanged vows within six months of engagement because they “didn’t want to drag it on.”

That death would do them apart after barely three years of marriage broke not only Kloot’s heart but those of the many people who have followed the couple’s journey. 

But Kloots has been a picture of strength as she shares pictures and videos of her son and their memories with Cordero with her half a million followers on Instagram.

Recently, Kloots surprised her husband’s fans with an announcement that his posthumous album will be released in two months.

She also revealed the release of the Broadway actor’s one-man show, which was created in April 2019 yet. She added that the actor worked hard on the show and was nervous about performing on it.
