Amanda Kloots celebrated Mother’s Day a little early this year.
The 39-year-old’s son, Elvis, walked onto “The Talk” stage dressed in a sharp white suit to surprise her during the live taping on Friday.
Carrying a beautiful yellow and white bouquet of flowers for his mom, Elvis received a standing ovation from her fellow “The Talk” co-hosts as he made a beeline for Kloots. After the almost two-year-old handed the flowers to his mom he reached his arms out for a hug and she quickly picked him up for a sweet embrace.
“Oh my goodness,” said Kloots, wearing a matching white maxi dress. “You guys, I can’t believe he actually just did that!” The exciting moment marked Elvis’ television debut.
Once Kloots was seated with Elvis in her lap, the toddler quickly became distracted by the toy recycling truck gifted to him by “The Talk” co-hosts.
“I was gonna do the niceties but clearly, Elvis you found your gift from us,” Elaine Welteroth, one of the hosts, said with a laugh.
This Sunday will mark Kloots’ first Mother’s Day as a widow following the death of her husband and Elvis’ father, Nick Cordero. The Broadway star passed away in July 2020 after battling complications from COVID-19. After spending 13 weeks in the ICU, Cordero lost his battle at just 41 years old.
Since losing her husband, Kloots has found a number of ways to keep his spirit alive. One of which includes wearing his ashes in a custom ring she had made in December.
“I’m constantly amazed by the ways you can incorporate ashes to keep your person close to you,” Kloots captioned a photo of the ring on her Instagram. “I love that Nick is with me in many places; the ocean, a beautiful vase, an urn and now on my hand.”
More recently, Kloots was shamed online for receiving her COVID-19 vaccination. The television personality posted a photo of herself receiving the vaccine in February which seemed to quickly upset her followers.
One follower wrote, “Can you explain why you got the vaccine ahead of 65 yr olds and first responders here in LA that cant get them yet?” While another wrote, “inquiring minds want to know how you got your vaccine while those working in schools still cannot even book an appointment.”
Kloots later updated the caption of her photo to address the backlash she was receiving, explaining how she received a vaccination before others.
“I went to a site and waited in my car until all appointments were over in hopes that they had any extra vaccines,” she explained. “I was fully prepared to be turned away, but they said they had enough tonight for everyone waiting. I cannot tell you how emotional I was and still am right now.”
