Amanda Kloots shared throwback photos of her late husband alongside a touching tribute in honor of what would have been his 42nd birthday.


Amanda Kloots is remembering her late husband, Nick Cordero. She recently took to Instagram to celebrate him on what would have been his 42nd birthday.

In the emotional post, Kloots shared throwback photos and videos of Cordero from his birthday celebration last year. The snippets showed him blowing out candles on his cake, and another captured him cuddling with his wife and son.

Kloots accompanied the snapshots with a tribute, where she stated that she hoped Cordero was having a great time singing in heaven.

She went on to talk about Cordero's birthday party last year. According to her, it was a perfect event because he did all of his favorite things and was surrounded by his favorite people. Kloots concluded by writing:

"I love you with all my heart. Happy Birthday?"


Shortly after sharing the post, fans and followers took to the comments section to wish Cordero a happy birthday while leaving Kloots with their best wishes.

Actress Selma Blair also left a touching tribute for Cordero under Kloot's post. The note saw her celebrating the late actor's life and thanking him for the legacy he left behind.


Cordero passed away in July after a three-month-long hospitalization after suffering complications from the novel coronavirus.

That same month, Kloots revealed that a posthumous album, "Live Your Life," which Cordero had been working on before his diagnosis, would be released later in the year.


On Cordero's birthday, the album was released. Shortly after its release, the album reached the number one spot on the iTunes charts, beating Taylor Swift's album, "Folklore."

"Live Your Life" is directed by award-winning producer and music director, Michael J Moritz Jr, with whom Cordero initially planned to release the record.

The album includes songs from Cordero's 2019 one-person show, held at Feinstein's/54 Below in New York City.

Proceeds from the album are expected to go to his wife and their one-year-old son, Elvis. Though Cordero is long gone, his memory and legacy live on with his loved ones and all of those who were touched by his life.
