Amanda Kloots Talks Being a Single Parent Two Months After Lossing Her Husband, Broadway Star Nick Cordero

Amanda Kloots is sharing how she has coped with becoming a single parent unexpectedly. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, on July 5, Kloots husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero, passed away following a long battle after contracting COVID-19.

For all intense and purposes, Cordero was a healthy young man when he contracted COVID while on a work trip. Their son, Elvis, was only nine months old when Cordero was first admitted into the hospital. Now, Kloots is vowing to make sure their son grows up still knowing the best parts of his father.

Amanda Kloots Talks Being a Single Parent Following Her Husband Nick Cordero’s Passing

However, recently, the wife and mother has opened up about what it’s been like becoming a single parent not long after becoming a mom for the first time. “I don’t think anything can prepare you for becoming a single parent,” Kloots wrote on Instagram.

“On top of being a full-time mom who is still breastfeeding Elvis, I’m having to run two businesses. It is hard and there are many days where I don’t know how to get it all done. Emails flood in, my phone is full of text messages and I have a little guy pulling on me to pick him up. How are you supposed to get everything done and feel like you are being a great mother too?”

I don't think anything can prepare you for becoming a single parent. On top of being a full time mom who is still breastfeeding Elvis, I'm having to run two businesses. It is hard and there are many days where I don't know how to get it all done. Emails flood in, my phone is full of text messages and I have a little guy pulling on me to pick him up. How are you supposed to get everything done and feel like you are being a great mother too? ⠀ One big lesson I’ve learned in life is that it is OK to ask for help. I would not be standing right now if I didn’t have help! In fact, I believe it shows a sign of strength not weakness. One of the things I've been doing for help is using an app called @peanut which connects you with other women in your area so that you're never alone. Nick wanted to move to Laurel Canyon because of the incredible community here. It's a special pocket of people who really care about togetherness and family. As hard as this new normal is, I'm very grateful for the community of women I have around me. When women support women amazing things happen! ⠀ Being able to ask questions and get advice from other women on @peanut has really helped me navigate my new role as a single mother. Whether you're looking for a friend to go on a walk with, or just someone to listen and offer support without judgment, the app is a great support network. ⠀ I've always said I think women are incredible, especially when we work together to help each other. When you have a true girlfriend or two that has your back, that you can talk to, complain to, seek help from… it's life changing. If you're a mom, mom-to-be or trying to conceive, and looking for a little extra help and community, I suggest checking out the app. #peanutapp ⠀

Kloots then went on to share one of the bigger lessons she’s learned since Cordero’s passing. And that is, “it is OK to ask for help.” In fact, the mom of one admits that she “would not be standing right now if she didn’t have help!” Asking for help, Kloots writes, is now something she believes “shows a sign of strength, not weakness.”

She then went on to share the app that has helped her find a community of women that has helped her get through this difficult season of life. It’s called Peanut and it “connects you with other women in your area so that you’re never alone.”

For Kloots, women have always been an incredible resource. As she says women are especially incredible “when we work together to help each other.”

“When you have a true girlfriend or two that has your back, that you can talk to, complain to, seek help from… it’s life-changing,” she adds. “If you’re a mom, mom-to-be, or trying to conceive, and looking for a little extra help and community, I suggest checking out the app.”
