Amanda Kloots Shares Sweet Photo of Son Elvis Wearing Her Late Husband's Costume — See the Look
Amanda Kloots shares a snap of her son, Elvis, looking adorable in an outfit that is a replica of the one worn by his late father, Nick, who died from Coronavirus complications in July, and prepares for their first Christmas without Nick.
"The Talk's" newest co-host, Amanda Kloots' heart beamed, thanks to an image of her son, Elvis, who wore the same costume his father, Nick Cordero wore as part of his 2012 term on "Rock of Ages."
1-year- old Elvis melted hearts on Instagram, sporting his mustard overalls and a floral shirt, with his feet exposed. A flood of comments of visibly moved fans complimented Elvis' on his cuteness, with one follower being brought to tears.
According to Kloots, the original costume was designed by her friends, Gregory Gale and Jennifer Jacob, before being customized into the miniature version for Elvis. Her emotions flowed through her caption, relaying how her heart had burst.
Kloots also shared on her Instagram stories, how the same material used to make Elvis' Hawaiian shirt was turned into a stuffed dog the little boy calls "Dada." CEGO Custom Shirtmaker was thrilled to have helped, writing in their caption:
"one of my very talented ladies transformed his costume into an outfit for their son Elvis. So glad that CEGO could turn this around."
It's been 5 months since Tony Award-winning actor, Cordero lost his life to Coronavirus complications on July 5, 2020. He was hospitalized in March before his condition deteriorated, prompting a resuscitation to help him breathe with an ECMO machine.
The Broadway actor endured 13 weeks in the hospital and suffered a septic shock, resulting in his right leg being amputated. Kloots remained strong throughout the ordeal until Cordero sadly lost his life in July.
As devastating as it was for 38-year-old Kloots to lose her husband, she credits her son for getting her through her ordeal and making her smile every day.
This December marks the first Christmas for Kloots and Elvis without Cordero. Luckily, Kloots' sister, Anna, will be there to lean on. The two have been making the most of their holiday season so far, sharing antics of enjoying wine on social media.
As devastating as it was for 38-year-old Kloots to lose her husband, she credits her son for getting her through her ordeal and making her smile every day. She revealed in an interview:
"Thank god I have a little piece of my husband. Anytime I'm sad, he brightens my mood in two seconds."
Just like her late husband, Kloots gained some Broadway experience, having started out as a professional dancer for "Good Vibrations" as well as being a former member of the New York City Rockettes.
Following an unexpected shutdown of the production she was involved in, Kloots found herself unemployed while in the midst of a divorce from a previous marriage. She buckled down and sought an entrepreneurial venture as a fitness instructor.
2021 is set to kick off with a bang for the blonde beauty. It was announced she would be joining the panel of CBS's "The Talk" with her debut scheduled for January 4. This follows the departure of Eve and Marie Osmond.
Kloots, alongside "Project Runway" judge, Elaine Welteroth, are the newest faces kicking off the 11th season of the show and set to join Sheryl Underwood, Sharon Osborne, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
