Amanda Kloots Does First Interview After Nick Cordero Passes Away: 'I'm Heartbroken'
After months of fighting to recover from the deadly COVID-19 virus, Nick Cordero has passed away. His brave grieving widow Amanda Kloots has just given her first official interview.
The Broadway star was admitted to the hospital over three months ago with what was believed to be pneumonia. He was then diagnosed with the Coronavirus in which he beat but unfortunately did not survive from the damage it caused.
Between an amputation and a pacemaker surgery, doctors did everything they could to save Nick who fought with all his heart. Although there were times where he seemed to be regaining consciousness, the Broadway star was not able to win the long-fought battle.
Kloots took to Instagram to announce her husband's passing where she was bombarded with love, light, and prayers from followers and celebrities alike.
Nick not only leaves behind a wife but also a one-year-old son.
Amanda spoke to People Magazine for this week's issue where Nick's angelic face graced the cover.
'My husband was a very special man. He was everyone’s friend. We taught each other things, challenging each other to grow. We loved to sing and dance wherever we were. Just looking at him doing the simplest things would bring a smile to my face,' she told the publication.
She went on to say: 'As a husband, I don’t think a day went by that he didn’t say to me, ‘I’m the luckiest.’ Words can’t describe how much I will miss him, his presence, his voice. I’m heartbroken.'
Kloots, who famously documented her commitment and Nick's fight on Instagram, has been finding solace in sharing memories about Nick on the social media platform.
The mother has taken to her Stories to reflect about a time where their lights went out during a blackout and Nick found himself in a panic. The story had a sweet ending.
