Amanda Kloots recently took to social media to mark the first anniversary of finding the first home she and her late husband, Nick Cordero, occupied before his demise. 


Amanda Kloots took her fans down memory lane yesterday after she shared a photo in commemoration of the first year anniversary they found their first home. 

The picture featured her holding their only child, Elvis, in her arms, while she stood next to Cordero, who stood smiling with a piece of document Kloots identified as a house paper in her captions.

The caption was a bit lengthy. In it, Kloots stated that October 21 marks the day she and Cordero found their home in Laurel Canyon. She revealed that when they walked into the house for a perusal, the first thing that caught their sight was a picture of Elvis Presley from "Jailhouse Rock." Her caption read:

"It was a sign! We called our besties @mollyetuttle and @3fortyseven to give us their opinions. We had found our first home."


Kloots added that Cordero had been elated at the time, sure they would be able to acquire the house even though they had no savings and sparsely enough money to get a mortgage. 

Before she concluded the nostalgic write up, Kloots slotted in a note of thanks to Leslie Cordero, a painter according to her Instagram bio, and Tori Horowitz, an estate director at Compass. 

She lost him long before he died.


She also thanked her late husband for being persistent about getting the beautiful house where she would now be residing with their son, Elvis. In the comments section, Kloots' followers had only positive statements to make. They all wished the widowed mother all the happiness the world has to offer. One fan wrote,

"Love this!!!!! You deserve all the happiness in the world in that house."


Kloots and her late husband, Cordero, had been in the process of moving halfway across the country from New York City to the West Coast when he contracted COVID-19.  

Cordero reportedly occupied the medical center's ICU for more than thirteen weeks due to COVID-19 complications. During this time, the late Broadway actor came face to face with several unforeseen complications. 


They finally led to septic shock giving him little choice but to amputate his right leg. He put up a good fight, but he succumbed to the illness on July 5 at the Cedars-Sinai hospital, where he had been receiving intensive treatment.  

Some months after his death, Kloots took to Instagram to discuss how she had been coping with his death. In her post, she revealed that his demise made her realize she lost him long before he died. 

According to her, he died the moment he was put on a ventilator. Fans of the pair hope she can heal and keep moving in the right direction because she deserves happiness, and it's what the late Cordero would have wanted for her.
