- Canadian actor and singer
Wearing a fancy, all-white suit, he tottered out to "Live Your Life" — a song by his late father, Nick Cordero, who died in July following a protracted struggle with COVID-19 — and presented her with flowers.
"Come here! Are you kidding me?!" Kloots said before scooping her son up in a big hug.
He sat with her for a few minutes, as Kloots's co-hosts presented mother and son with gifts, including The Talk-branded onesies for each of them.
CBS This Morning's Gayle King and some Muppets from Sesame Street also made an appearance via video to wish them well on the holiday.
Kloots joined the show full-time in January, after serving as guest-host for a few months. That came after she gained attention on social media when her husband was in the hospital following his March 2020 diagnosis. The actor was best known for his work in Broadway shows, such as Waitress, A Bronx Tale and Bullets Over Broadway.
While he was sick, Kloots regularly updated her followers on Cordero's condition, as he was induced into a coma and placed on a ventilator. Among other complications, he had several mini-strokes and had his right leg amputated to alleviate blood clots. The news was usually bleak, but Kloots encouraged people to cheer Cordero on by singing and dancing along to "Live Your Life" with her every day at 3 p.m. PT.
She's continued to mourn him in emotional statements. On Wednesday, she noted that it had been 10 months since he died.
"I was told grief would feel lighter with time," she wrote on Instagram. "I'm not sure I'm finding that to be true. I think, in time you learn tools and ways to help you cope, but in general time has been harder for me. It's the every day moments I really miss, the emptiness and loneliness that time allows to set in. As Elvis grows I can't help to ache that Nick isn't here seeing him grow. Wondering how they would interact and play? That guts me most of the time. He would have loved this stage that Elvis is in right now."
