Over the weekend, Nick Cordero and Amanda Kloots’ son, Elvis, 1, said his first word: “Dada.”

Amanda Kloots posted a video of the sweet moment to her Instagram account, writing, “Elvis said his first words today!! Listen closely! He pointed at Nick in our new picture light and said ‘right there.’ He hasn’t seen Nick since March 30th. The fact that he still knows who his Dada is, point to him and give him a kiss to me is amazing.”

In the video Kloots asks her son, “Where’s Dada?” as he points to a picture of Codero and leans in to give him a kiss.

Cordero, 41, passed away on July 5 after spending 13 weeks in the hospital fighting COVID-19 complications. Through her social media, Kloots has continued to share meaningful moments from the life they shared, including videos of the couple made by loved ones, family photos and a sign from Cordero showing her he was still with her.

“I had the People magazine on my bed last night because I was going to read it finally. It fell off the bed and landed face down and on the back cover was the Geico gecko. Nick put two things on his vision board this year, two things. One of them was the Geico gecko. Out of all the ads that could have been on the back of Nicks issue, THIS WAS THE AD!” Kloots wrote in the caption of a post. “The spiritual meaning of a gecko, in case you are wondering, it represents incredible healing and cleansing due to its regenerative powers.”

Kloots also shared recently that she found hundreds of texts and photos in Cordero’s phone days after his death. “I feel very loved and I feel like Nick is really loved and our little boy is very loved,” she said. “So one day at a time, and I’m letting myself feel all the feels and I’m letting myself cry when I need to and I’m letting myself just sit in silence if I need to.”
