'Where is daddy?': Amanda Kloots reveals how 3-yr-old son still asks for dad Nick Cordero
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: American TV personality Amanda Kloots has been struggling to cope with her husband's death, Nick Cordero who died from Covid-related complications back in 2020. Their son, Elvis Eduardo Cordero was only 13 months old when his father died. Tragically, he is now asking Kloots about his father's whereabouts. She revealed that her son still has recollections about his father while speaking to iHeartRadio show 'The Important Things' with Bobbi Brown last week.
She said, "I don't know if that's because we watch so many videos together of Nick or because I talk about Nick so much. But he does, he does say that and I love it. But it makes me wonder." Amanda also added that she has made conversations related to her late husband which led to her son asking her, "where his dad is", sparking up a new development in her own sad story.
"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 said. "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." Amanda went on to say that she told her son that "Dada lives in heaven with Jesus but he's all around us all the time," and that his father is always keeping an eye on them and happy for them to talk to him.
Amanda has found the month of September to be challenging ever since she lost her husband since it marks both his birthday and their anniversary.
MEAWW previously reported that in a heartbreaking Instagram post ahead of her 39th birthday, last year, Amanda Kloots mourned the death of her late husband Nick Cordero. She shared their last picture together as a family and said that this week was especially tough for her to get through. The picture she revealed was from when the two were together for her birthday last year.
She wrote, "Our last family photo taken on my birthday last year. Nick started feeling tired on this night so after dinner we went to bed early. Nick kept telling me that day, 'next year I’ll give you the best birthday ever.' It was early quarantine days so we felt lost, unable to do anything. Despite that, I still had a lovely day."
She also added, "The truth is, this is week is very hard and I’m sad. I’ve been dreading it and it’s caught up to me. This isn’t easy for me, but I truly believe in honoring the highs and lows in grief. The rollercoaster is full of many including twists and turns. If I’m not honest about them how do we learn and help each other through this part of life? Life is precious. Time is precious. Health is precious. Treasure it all and don’t take it for granted because it’s the best birthday gift you can give yourself and to anyone."
