Nick Cordero’s Wife Amanda Kloots Celebrates Late Husband’s 42nd Birthday
2020 and COVID-19 took away from us a very bright star. In July, Nick Cordero passed away due to COVID-19 related complications at the young age of 41. Now, Nick Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots celebrates her late husband’s 42nd birthday, by paying him a wonderful tribute on Instagram.
Prior to his death, Nick Cordero spent 90 days in the Intensive Care Unit at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He had numerous unpredictable complications due to Coronavirus. Had he survived, he would not have been able to walk again. Sadly, the actor passed away on July 5th.
Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots, who’s 38 and a fitness instructor, honored her late husband in a very emotional Instagram post. The post had pictures of Cordero from his birthday celebrations last year. She wrote:
“My angel in heaven is celebrating his birthday today. Happy 42nd Birthday baby (bee emoji). I bet you’re having quite the celebration up there, probably singing to everyone. Elvis (their only son) and I will be singing here on earth to you (heart emoji).”
Moreover, Kloots also shared how happy Cordero was this time last year, saying:
It could not have been a more perfect party for him. He was at his favorite bar with his favorite friends in Laurel Canyon, his dream come true. Right after he blew out his candles I remember him saying, “Come on! I’m so blessed!”
I love you with all my heart.
Happy Birthday (kiss emoji)
After his death, Cordero left behind his wife and 1-year-old son Elvis Eduardo, along with many friends weeping for his tragic death, including Zach Braff.
How COVID-19 changed the Corderos’ lives
In another post, Nick Cordero’s wife also mentioned how happy the couple was last year after his 41st birthday. The couple had moved to LA on his 41st birthday and they were ready to start a new chapter in life. She wrote in another post:
One year ago today we moved to California. We were so excited for this new adventure. We had arrived in LA the day before his birthday and thought what a way to kick off your 41st year.
However, faith had something else planned for them. Kloots further wrote:
I’m finding that I do it even more now because I can’t believe how much can and has changed in just one year. Everything is completely different. My life is so different. Elvis has grown so much and is completely different.
In the end, the late Nick Cordero’s wife reminded everyone to wear a mask and to not take anyone you love for granted.

One year ago today we moved to California. We were so excited for this new adventure. We had arrived in LA the day before his birthday and thought what a way to kick off your 41st year. ⠀ I’ve done this my whole life- I think “one year ago” or “6 months ago” … I’m finding that I do it even more now because I can’t believe how much can and has changed in just one year. Everything is completely different. My life is so different. Elvis has grown so much and is completely different. ⠀ Please wear a mask. Please make smart and safe decisions. Hug your loved ones close and don’t take one day for granted. ❤️
Moreover, Thursday also marked the release of Nick Cordero’s posthumous album. It is a live recording of the cabaret show which Cordero performed at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below in April 2019. All the proceeds from that album will to the Cordero family. Kloots said back in July:
“Nick would be absolutely thrilled to hear this news. I’ve never seen my husband work so hard on something and be so nervous to perform. I was so proud of him and absolutely loved watching him onstage these two nights. He created this show from scratch, choosing songs to tell a story … his story.”
