Amanda Kloots, who lost her husband Nick Cordero to COVID-19 last year, is back again into the dating world.
The 39-year-old TV personality and a talk show host was married to Cordero for three years, but the Tony-nominated Broadway star died in 2020 due to complications from COVID-19. But now, Amanda is beginning to date again a year later.
On Friday’s episode of The Talk, Amanda opened up about her dating life and her looking forward to meeting people, which she is also finding a little tricky. Kloots said, “Both of my husbands ((David Larsen and Nick Cordero) I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married. Obviously with Nick, we had a child.”
Kloots continued, “I’ve never actually had to date, and I just started dating again, and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old. And it’s quite terrifying and, and really out of your element, and it’s just, it’s hard. It is hard.”
Amanda, who is also a fitness trainer, said, “It’s all wonderful. It’s wonderful people I’m meeting, and it’s been a great process so far,” she said. “But I’ll just say it’s very hard, without getting into too many details. It’s very hard.”
Kloots has a 2 year old son with Cordero named Elvis, who was only eleven months old at the time of his father’s passing. Cordero passed away in July 2020 at the age of 41. He suffered from COVID-19 and struggled with months-long battle with coronavirus complications. In fact, during his time in the hospitals, Cordero suffered mini-strokes, lung infections and one of his legs was required to be amputated.
A day after her husband’s death, Amanda had shared a video clip of their time together and shared an emotional message. “I have always been lucky to have a family that loves to be together and to support each other. I’m even luckier to have Nicks family and extended family that are the same,” Amanda wrote with the video.
“In times of trauma, look for the silver linings,” Kloots added. “Spend time with family. Smile through the tears. Have faith when things seem impossible. Love one another.”
