Amanda Kloots marks the anniversary of her late husband’s proposal of marriage

Amanda Kloots has remembered her late husband, Nick Cordero, through another notable milestone.

Since the actor’s death in July 2020, his wife has been dedicated to preserving his memory by recalling events that shaped their relationship before his death. In her latest update, the mother-of-one treated herself to a manicure day in honor of the day Cordero unexpectedly proposed.

Though short-lived, The Talk co-host’s romance with the late star began after they met on the set of Bullets Over Broadway in 2014. The 41-year-old played Cheech – a gangster and aspiring auteur filmmaker, and Kloots was a dancer in the ensemble.

The duo quickly formed a friendship where they talked for hours after work. The “Waitress” actor eventually proposed to him years later during one of their many trips to the Hudson Valley.

While it wasn’t exactly what she expected, the dancer was thrilled to “live happily ever after” with the man of her dreams. The memorable moment became even more intense after the ‘A Bronx Tale: The Musical’ star passed away after a brief battle with COVID-19.

To mark this year’s anniversary of her proposal, Kloots treated herself to a manicure day and shared the finished look with her followers via her Instagram story The 41-year-old opened up for short, minimalist nails with nude polish and a blue amulet eye drawn on her ring finger.

Her middle and ring fingers were adorned with fancy gold rings, as she wrote in the text overlay, “Got a little tribute manicure.”

Judging by the throwback story she recently shared about the day Cordero popped the life-changing question, the nails were a perfect tribute. According to the TV personality’s March 21 Instagram post, she was unaware of his intentions and couldn’t make any attempts to look “better.”

“On this day six years ago Nick proposed to me in Hudson, NY and THAT was my manicure! 😬🤪🧿🙈 Obviously I had no idea he was going to call me,” the Good Vibrations star quipped in the caption.

The manicure featured in the front and center caption photo featured nude colored nails with eyeballs drawn on the underside of each finger. Despite the flop, Kloots and her husband looked over the moon as they stood close together and smiled brightly for the camera.

The Young Frankenstein actress wore a gray sweater over a flannel shirt that matched her then-fiancé’s blue flannel shirt. For the engagement ring, Cordero opted for a plain old band with a heart-shaped diamond.

As expected, the post touched the hearts of her fans and they supported her in the comments section. One fan claimed the duo’s romance “changed my entire life.” A second thanked the GlenOak High School alum for sharing their love story.

A third user pointed out that the “bad manicure” makes the memory “even better”. A fourth person, who “never comments” on “celebrity posts,” gushed, “I’m so happy you experienced so much love for Nick! Your story moved me and every day you are an example of not only resilience but an amazing way of living and just living life in the best way possible!”

The ‘Fit For Christmas’ star is open about dealing with grief

In January, The Blast noted that Kloots was open about people’s expectations of her grieving process, especially after her mother-in-law Lesley died. The fitness trainer revealed a critic sent her a direct message asking her to stop dancing and focus on mourning the Cordero matriarch.

Rather than responding directly to the troll, the Ohio native dropped a clip that showed her — alongside a cross-section of other people — taking choreography lessons from Ryan Heffington. Under the caption, she shared that the day after her mother-in-law’s death, she was scolded for “working out and teaching fitness.”

After stressing that this isn’t the first time a stranger has sent her a message “telling me that I don’t grieve by her standards,” she enlightened critics on how she handles grief through dancing. The Dancing with the Stars contestant went on to explain what happens when she joins the dance class, writing:

“I put every emotion I had inside of me into every step — the sadness from the loss, the accumulation from weeks before, the ptsd I was experiencing, the shock, the heaviness and weight of the trauma. I took it all and danced it in front of a group of people I didn’t know. I didn’t look in the mirror. I have not judged myself. I was just dancing.”

Kloots concluded by asking those who are grieving to find out what helped them and stick with it, without ignoring the judgment of outsiders. Amanda Kloots marks the anniversary of her late husband’s proposal of marriage
