Nick Cordero’s widow Amanda Kloots reflects on first home without him

Amanda Kloots has revealed she was ‘terrified to move’ into her first home without late husband Nick Cordero – but feels the actor ‘shifted her’ to the new house.

Broadway star Nick died aged just 41 in July 2020 from Covid-related complications, leaving behind his beloved wife Amanda, 40, and their then 13-month-old son Elvis.

Actress Amanda and Elvis, three, now moved into a new LA home in May 2021 just down the road from where she lived with Cordero – with poignant touches – including photos of Nick on Elvis’ pillows – ensuring his memory lives on.

She told People: ‘I love this little house. It feels very much like Nick shifted us here. It was as soon as I walked in, there were just many, many signs.

‘I walk in and the piano is there and there’s all this vinyl. The sun was just coming in and that was the first thing that I saw. I used to yell at Nick on a daily basis for the vinyl deliveries we would get to our apartment in New York City, that there was no more room for his vinyl.’

Amanda said she has ensured there are nods to her late husband throughout the house – which she believes would have been his ‘dream home’, as she and Elvis attempt to ‘start fresh’ as ​​they continue their lives without Nick.

She said: ‘There’s a beautiful photo, a painting upstairs on the top of the hallway. In Elvis’ room, there’s a couple pillows that have his face printed on it. All these table books are his.’

At the time of Nick’s diagnosis of Covid, the star went on her social media to document the journey and the Broadway singer’s health status. However, in July 2020, he passed away due to complications.

At the time of his sudden death, Amanda went onto her Instagram to share the tragic news and her own ‘disbelief.’

‘God has another angel in heaven now. My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth.’ The TV personality thanked the doctors while also adding, ‘My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him.’

Amanda and Nick first crossed paths when the two worked on the musical, Bullets Over Broadway. The two tied the knot in 2017, and welcomed their son, Elvis, two years later.

Since his passing in 2020, the actress has kept his memory alive by sharing photos and videos of him in the past onto her social media.

In October Amanda revealed Elvis has been asking ‘where his dad is’ after his tragic passing two years ago.

The Talk co-host opened up about her grief since losing her husband, Nick Cordero, on iHeartRadio’s The Important Things With Bobbi Brown, which aired earlier Tuesday.

The dancer explained that her son still remembers his dad, adding, ‘I have to now face his grief after dealing with mine.’

‘I feel like that part of grief is going to start happening, where I have to now face his grief after dealing with mine for the last two years,’ she explained on the show.

The actress further expressed that it has not been an easy road, ‘helping Elvis understand at this young age where dad is, why dad doesn’t live with us, what happened to dad. And it’s been really, really, really hard.’

The fitness instructor stated that although the conversation is a little new to her, when Elvis asks where his father is, she responds with, ‘Dada lives in heaven with Jesus but he’s all around us all the time.’

New home: She said: 'There's a beautiful photo, a painting upstairs on the top of the hallway.  In Elvis' room, there's a couple pillows that have his face printed on it.  All these table books are his

‘And we can always talk to him, we can listen to him sing and he’s watching over us all the time.’ That’s what I’ve said so far,’ the talented star added.

Amanda also stated, even to her own surprise, that Elvis still has memories of his father, Nick.

‘Which is crazy, I don’t know if that’s because we watch so many videos together of Nick or because I talk about Nick so much,’ the star explained. ‘But he does, he does say that and I love it. But it makes me wonder.’

The dancer stated during the interview that September had been quite difficult for her, explaining that it was both her husband’s birthday and what would have been their fifth wedding anniversary.

Earlier in May, the professional dancer opened up about her grief over the years during an interview on CBS Mornings.

‘I miss having somebody to come home to, and I miss laughing with somebody,’ Amanda explained.

‘Every time I retell this story, it’s amazing how helpful it is in this grieving journey. Grief does not stop,’ she further stated.
