Broadway star Nick Cordero should have been there to watch as his little son Elvis Eduardo took his first steps. But instead, he missed this milestone as he continues to battle coronavirus at a Los Angeles hospital.
“We have a WALKER,” Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (June 16) alongside a video of Elvis tentatively taking his first steps.

In the video, Kloots can also be heard encouraging little Elvis, who recently celebrated his first birthday, also without his father by his side. Kloots also shared more footage of Elvis walking around on her Instagram Story.
It certainly must be a bittersweet time for the family, as Cordero continues to battle an ongoing series of complications stemming from his battle with COVID-19.
“Nick has been in the ICU for 73 days, currently dealing with COVID complications. I am balancing this, raising a son and building a business,” Kloots said in a recent Instagram post. “My family is here and have been an incredible support system to me and Elvis. We’re on day 72 and we aren’t even at the first couple miles of the race. That’s crazy to think about because we’ve been through a lot — a lot. And trust me, I have been super emotional about it lately because gosh you just want things to happen. It’s tough, it’s really really tough.”

Hello! I wanted to take a minute to say hi to my new followers and tell you a little more about me and my page! Life- I am from Ohio but lived in NYC for 19 years. I performed on Broadway, national tours, film and TV for 16 years. At 32, I went through an unexpected divorce, felt completely lost and terrified for my future. It was then that I decided to start my own business and take control of my life. I took a huge leap of faith, trusted my gut and launched my business with the worlds first jump rope class! My years on the broadway stage bring a unique energy and power to my fitness classes. I also have an online subscription series on my website. I met Nick doing the Broadway show, Bullets Over Broadway. We were friends first and then fell in love. We got married in NYC in 2017 and had Elvis two years later. Nick dreamed of living in LA, buying a home and raising Elvis in Laurel Canyon so we moved to LA in September 2019. Elvis, our baby boy, just turned 1! I have wanted to be a mom my entire life. I would have 5 more kids if I could! Religion- I was raised knowing God, reading the Bible and the power of prayer. I love that going to church on Sundays makes me feel renewed and connected to something bigger than myself. I love that in hard times, like the one I’m in, I can lean on my faith to help guide me through. I love religion and appreciate all religions. I would never force mine on anyone but will always share how my faith helps me. Positivity- I start everyday with a positive quote which I then share on my stories. I believe if you start your day in a positive way then it carry’s with you. I believe that a smile is your best accessory. My motto in life is “Make yourself as big as you can!” Current life- Nick has been in the ICU for 73 days, currently dealing with healing from COVID complications. I am balancing this, raising a son and building my business. My family is here and have been an incredible support system to me and Elvis. What to expect on my feed- Nick updates, Elvis pictures, fitness inspo, home reno and products that I love to share with you. Thank for following me! xx, Amanda
