“It was the worst day. It was almost like, it felt like the day actually again,” Amanda Kloots spoke of the first death anniversary of her late husband Nick Cordero before finding reasons to celebrate the day.

“Amanda Kloots Has ‘Completely Reframed’ the Day Nick Cordero Died as His New Birthday,” People Tweeted.

On Wednesday, during a panel chit-chat with the wife of the former TV star, Bob Saget, the 40-year-old Kloots revealed that she has adopted a new tradition of celebrating her husband’s birthday on his death day.

“The most beautiful thing in the world happened last year. It was the worst day. It was almost like, it felt like the day actually again. I laid in bed, and I cried my eyes for the good half of the day,” the dancer and fitness instructor recounted. “And then my girlfriend called me, and she was like, ‘Oh my God, I had the most amazing dream of Nick.’ “

Cordero was “so happy and so smiley” in the dream as it was his birthday “the one day I get to come back on earth and celebrate everybody,” said the deceased artist in the dream.

“And she told me that dream and in an instant, I completely reframed his death day as his new birthday. And I instantly got out of bed,” she added.

“I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, if Nick is celebrating this day, then Elvis and I need to always celebrate this day as his new birthday and that he is still with us and he will always be with us.’ “

“And this doesn’t have to be a day where I cry my eyes out. This can be a day where I get a cake and we sing happy new birthday to dad. So I think that definitely will become a tradition for us,” Kloots described.

Amanda Kloots shares a 2.5-year-old son with her late husband, Nick Cordero, who died in 2020 after a months-long battle with Covid. He was 41.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant became friends with Rizzo 42, who also recently lost her husband in January due to an alleged ‘head trauma. ’

“New friends in a club we didn’t ever think we’d be in. So grateful to now know this strong woman, sharing stories only helps this rollercoaster we are on,” Amanda Kloots said on her Instagram. Rizzo commented on her post saying, “If I’m going to be in this club, I’m grateful to have genuine caring people like you by my side.”
