Amanda Kloots walks down memory lane to remember her late partner. Kloots took to Instagram to reminisce about her Christmas memories with her late husband.
Fitness Instructor Amanda Kloots remembers her late husband Nick Cordero ahead of 1st Christmas without him. Kloots posted on her account to share her last Christmas memory with Cordero.
In her post, Kloots shared a snapshot of her baby boy and his father and wrote, “One of my favorite pictures of Nick and Elvis. This was last Christmas.”
Kloots explained that at the time, she and her family flew down to South Carolina and had a very Hallmark-style Christmas at the Montage Palmetto Bluff. “I’ll never forget it. Hug your loved ones close guys,” she wrote.
Cordero held his son Elvis in the snap, and they posed while showing their happy faces and shared big smiles for the camera. It looked like a great evening for the two as they posed in an outdoor setting with trees behind them.
Cordero wore a black blazer with a white shirt underneath, while Elvis wore a blue baby grow. Little Elvis has his father’s eyes as he held him close to his chest. Kloots' followers shared words to comfort the mom of one as she encouraged them to appreciate their families while they still can.
“Beautiful memory!! Baby Elvis is a mini Nick, thinking of you and baby Elvis always,” said one Instagram user. Another added, “They have the same great smile!”
As Kloots reflects on her last Christmas with Cordero and their son Elvis, earlier this month, the 38-year-old shared another photo with her late husband and baby Elvis. Cordero and his son were taking a nap on the snap, and Kloots took a snap of them both.
In her post, Kloots shared that she loved finding the father and son all snuggled up and together napping. The snapshot of Cordero and his son is from a year ago.
Meanwhile, Kloots is preparing for Christmas without her son's father; once again, earlier this month, she shared her e-holiday card. Which was a photo of herself wearing a 'live your life' shirt while holding Elvis in her arms.
The television personality shared how Christmas will be different for her and her baby boy this year. Kloots disclosed that for her, holiday cards bring cheer, happiness, and hope.
Kloots lost her husband to the novel coronavirus in July. According to People, the Broadway star was 41 years old when he lost his long battle with the virus.
The Tony Award-nominated star woke up from a medically induced coma and underwent a leg amputation due to Covid-19 complications. Cordero was hospitalized for 90 days.
The Canadian actor is survived by his lovely wife and their 1-year-old son Elvis. Cordero and Kloots got married in September 2017.
Their love story is heartwearming yet heartbreaking. The couple met when they were both doing "Bullets Over Broadway," a musical based on the 1994 Woody Allen Film. According to E! Online, Codero played a gangster role while Kloots was a dancer on the ensemble.
Although most of their days and evenings were consumed by the musical, they would go to their own apartments and end up on Skype for hours each night. After the show ended, Kloots paid Cordero a visit for dinner in Washington Heights.
After hitting it off, they dated, but it was short-lived as they ended their relationship. When the pair broke up, and Cordero moved back to Canada to look after his father at the time.
They eventually got back together. One day, when they were out on an excursion to the Hudson Valley, Cordero proposed. The pair wed at the Skylark Lounge in New York, and their intimate celebration was inspired by old-school New York glamour.
