Amanda Kloots is having difficulty holding it together as her son, Elvis Eduardo Cordero’s, fourth birthday draws closer.
The daytime talk show co-host penned a thoughtful and emotional note on her social media feed, sharing that she would never stop doting on her baby boy. She has been single-handedly raising Elvis since her husband, Nick Cordero, died from COVID-19-related complications on July 5, 2020, disrupting her life for life.
Amanda Kloots Promised Always To Hold Elvis In A Pre-Birthday Tribute
Kloots could barely hide her emotions as she dedicated a sweet post to Elvis, who will turn four on June 10. The doting mama bear had uploaded a single photo that featured her holding the toddler close and smiling down at him as he seemingly napped.
The mother-son duo was covered by a white blanket, allowing viewers to see the gray graphic shirt that the “The Talk” star donned. Beneath the sweet image was an even sweeter message that began:
“This is us. Him and I, we’re a team forever. I’ll never forget the day when we took a three hour nap in each others arms knowing that we were now on this road just the two of us.”
“I cannot believe he’s almost four. I cannot believe what an amazing little boy he is,” she gushed before revealing that she cherished “our bond, our relationship, our love.” The dancer then promised that she would “hold him, cuddle him, hug and kiss him any chance” she gets, and wrapped up by confessing, “It’s a privilege to be his mama. Always and forever, Elvis.”
While it is not the first time the “Fit for Christmas” actress will shower her son with affectionate tributes online, her fans were still thrilled to see it, and they expressed as much in the comments.
For example, this fan claimed that they loved “witnessing this bond too!” and a second admitted, “The best memories in the whole world. These moments. You are the best mama to your sweet, beautiful boy.”
A third person exclaimed, “Ah, your relationship is golden! Enjoy the love you share so deeply,” as a third declared, “I believe it to be true that every mother feels this way, but I know there must be a special fairy that sprinkles pixie dust just for situations like yours!”
Similarly, a fourth netizen lauded Kloots for being “the best mama,” adding, “Elvis is blessed to have you, and Nick chose the perfect woman to raise his son.” Others expressed gratitude that the little boy’s upcoming celebration had given his mother more time to prepare for the conversation about the grief she knows is coming.
Per The Blast, the fitness instructor stated during an interview last month that she was gearing up for the misery that she and Cordero’s child will feel when the latter’s absence finally dawns on him. The three-year-old had already started steering some of their conversations toward his father’s death. In her words:
“There have been some times where he has gotten sad where we’re talking about Nick, and he says, ‘But Dada died.’ And then he’ll get very, very sad, which is heartbreaking as a parent, obviously.”

For Mother’s Day, Kloots honored her mom, Maureen, and even credited her for teaching her how to be a mother. For that, the mother-of-one posted two slides of the gorgeous matriarch, with the first showing her holding her grandson after his birth in a white graphic top and a bucket hat.
In the second picture, the “The Irishman” cast member and her son are seated beside Maureen, who was beaming as she held a pup behind a gray blanket. The accompanying caption, which reflected Kloots’ heart, read:
“I don’t think you fully understand how much your mom loves you until you become a mom. Thank you for loving me, Mommy, and for teaching me how to be a mother. ❤️.”
The comment section promptly came alive as one fan remarked, “Happy Mother’s Day, Amanda! And you’re so right. You don’t understand how much love a mother has for her little one until she becomes a mom herself. ❤️❤️❤️.” “Onions somewhere😢? Happy Mother’s Day, Amanda and Maureen Kloots;❤️,” a second person typed.
