Amanda Kloots Reveals Why She Documented Nick Cordero's Coronavirus Battle

If you remember, Amanda Kloots documented her husband Nick Cordero‘s over 90 day hospital battle with Coronavirus before his tragic death on July 5.

She’s now explaining why she provided so many updates on his time in the hospital, including his leg needing to be amputated and how he wasn’t a candidate for a lung transplant later on in his stay.

Nick was sick and in our home for a good week, and I wasn’t saying anything,” Amanda told the New York Times. “And then when he went into the hospital, I thought it was important to share: My husband, who is 41 and has no pre-existing conditions, is now in the ICU after just being tired. Also, my business was online, and I was trying to make money for our family, and I thought if I don’t go public, I’ll be living a lie.”

“He was getting better,” Amanda added about his final days. “They were almost going to take him off the vent. And then he got a terrible infection in his lungs and his fever spiked, his blood pressure dropped, his heart stopped and he died for two minutes, and that was the start of the spiral down. It just felt like he could never catch a break.”

“But it was a different time, and Nick just got trapped,” she added. “I think it would be different if he went to the hospital now.”

Our continued thoughts are with Amanda and their one-year-old son Elvis.

Florence Pugh Honors Boyfriend Zach Braff's Close Friend Nick Cordero on His Birthday

Florence Pugh is honoring Nick Cordero on what would have been his 42nd birthday.

The 24-year-old Little Woman actress took to her Instagram on Thursday (September 17) to share a sweet message to the late Broadway actor for his birthday. Nick passed away in July from coronavirus complications.

“So. This amazing man is turning 42 today. Nick was the first to welcome me into this friendship group, he had this big open smile that makes you fall in love with him even if he hadn’t said anything yet,” Florence wrote. “Nick used to let me put ointments and beard balms and face masks on him after dinner when everyone else at the dinner table had politely refused.”

“He would eat ALL of my cooking. Everything. Even if it was burnt! He’d then go back for seconds, thirds, fourths.. each time mmm’ing and ah’ing with the same intensity as the first time,” Florence continued. “Nick sings like it’s as easy as breathing. His voice is like butter and if you ever had the pleasure of hearing it live you’d be so wrapped up in the song you wouldn’t have time to notice the goosebumps all over your skin.”

Florence is currently dating Zach Braff, who was a very close friends with Nick. During Nick‘s hospitalization, his wife Amanda Kloots and their son Elvis, 1, moved into Zach‘s guest house.

“My mum fell in love with him. She spent a whole dinner planted between Amanda and Nick, her gaze would jump between the two of them, almost like she was wrapped up in the middle of their love just admiring it,” Florence wrote. “My mum was so in love with him that she forgot to eat dessert.. which.. for our family, is a big f–king deal.”

Florence added: “Nick was the best cuddler. He was so big and so mighty he would wonderfully smother you and wouldn’t let go. I would find Zach and Nick cuddling on the sofa at the end of so many parties, it looked so comfortable it would be hard not to join. It’s hard to imagine someone so big and so mighty is no longer here anymore.”

“Nick had so much love. He had so much love to give it was impossible not to feel high whenever you’d leave him,” Florence ended her post. “Happy F–king Birthday darling, we shall have a mighty cheese board with all the chutneys and relishes in your honour. We’re thinking of you. ‘We love you to infinity and beyond!’”

Not long ago, Zach revealed the final text message he received from Nick before he lost consciousness. He spent over 90 days in the hospital fighting for his life.

Amanda Kloots Helps Finish Song Late Husband Nick Cordero Previously Recorded

Amanda Kloots is lending her voice for a song previously recorded by her late husband Nick Cordero.

The 39-year-old fitness instructor revealed on Instagram earlier this week that she teamed up with music producer and composer Rickey Minor to help finish her late husband’s song titled “Not Far Away.”

“Tonight I got to work with musical legend Rickey Minor on a very special song, a Nick Cordero original,” Amanda started. “Rickey has been my great friend for years and I’ve watched him win Emmy’s, conduct the Oscars and work with every famous artist like Whitney Houston and Rhianna. Tonight, he said YES to working with me.”

“Nick wrote a song about his losing and missing his father, called Not Far Away. He posted it on Instagram, but only wrote one verse and chorus,” Amanda wrote. “Our friend Maddox had the idea for me to write the second verse and then sing a duet with Nick. Rickey and @lennywee helped me, added our voices together, mixed and arranged it, then added beautiful strings and chimes to create this new duet.”

“This was one special night… I got to sing with Nick!” Amanda concluded. “It was hard living up to my husbands vocals but I closed my eyes and pretended we were onstage singing this song together. I cried a lot, but Rickey guided me through it every step of the way. I’m so grateful that I’ll have this song always and that Elvis will too. Thank you so much @rickeyminor and @lennywee for taking the time tonight to make me feel like a rockstar.”

Nick passed away earlier this summer from coronavirus complications. Next month, a tribute concert will be held in honor of what would have been Nick‘s 42nd birthday.
