Five months after her husband, Nick Cordero, passed away, Amanda Kloots revealed that she would be doing something extraordinary to give back to those who helped her husband while he battled COVID-19.
On July 5, actor Nick Cordero tragically passed away after battling COVID-19. To mark the fifth month without him, his wife and the new "The Talk" co-host, Amanda Kloots, took to Instagram with a touching post. She wrote:
"It's been 5 months today since we lost you. 154 days without you, every one of those days missing you."
Her caption accompanied a precious family photo with her husband and their 1-year-old son, Elvis. She continued, revealing that she decided to do something incredibly kind in honor of her late husband.
Kloots wrote that she would spend the special day teaching her "AK! Body" class live on zoom. She revealed that on behalf of Cordero, she would also donate all the proceeds to Cedar Sinai hospital.
This was where Cordero spent the last of his days in the ICU fighting COVID-19. Kloots also praised the nurses who took care of her husband while catering to him.
She added that she was in awe every day as she watched them take care of Cordero. According to her, they never sat down and did not stop working for every minute of their 12-hour shift.
She concluded her touching message by saying that it was an honor to donate her time and the funds to help those who helped her family. She ended the tear-jerking caption with a hearty "Thank you" to the Health Heros.
The idea of little Elvis sleeping next to the sweet momento that had his name stitched on it made fans very emotional.
As Kloots' words and experiences these past few months have, her post touched the hearts of her trait of thousands of fans and followers.
The support that came in was inspiring and heart-warming, as many people left supportive messages in the comments, praising her for being so incredible.
One Instagram user and fan penned a sweet message to Kloots, writing that they were amazed by her giving spirit. Another fan left a lengthy message, in which they said:
"I still can't believe he's gone. Amanda it's just not real- I am so sorry for your loss and have you in my thoughts daily."

Kloots, a former Broadway dancer and a host on CBS's "The Talk," must have been no doubt warmed by the sweet gestures extended to her.
Throughout the months since the tragedy struck, the mother of one has been doing her best to keep Cordero's spirit alive for herself and little Elvis.
In November, she shared something truly magical with her fans — a teddy bear, which Kloots referred to as a memory bear, made from the dressing robe Cordero wore during his last performance in Rock of Ages.

She gave the special teddy bear to her son. The idea of little Elvis sleeping next to the sweet momento that had his name stitched on it made fans very emotional.
It was a cause for them and Kloots to smile despite the gloominess. Another reason for Kloots to smile came earlier in December when she and Elaine Welteroth were revealed to be the two new hosts on "The Talk."
They would be joining the show's season 11 alongside long-time hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
Both new hosts are familiar on the show as they have been guest co-hosts. As the days and months pass by, fans can only hope that Kloots and her son find more reasons to smile as they heal from their painful loss.
