“We drove to the emergency room and we dropped him off, and this is one of the saddest parts, we thought I would see him in two hours,” Kloots said, trying to smile through her explanation.
The fitness instructor recalled telling her husband, 41, that she was going to take their son, Elvis Eduardo, for a walk and instructed Cordero to give her a call when he was ready to be picked up.
“We just weren’t thinking,” she continued. “I didn’t even give him a kiss or a hug because we were also kind of self-isolating from him because we have this 10-month-old baby and I couldn’t get sick, I’m still breastfeeding.”
Kloots said that after an hour of waiting, Cordero called her and said, “‘Amanda, they have admitted me, I’m now in a bed with oxygen.”

The actor told Kloots that the hospital “‘did a COVID test on me and they told me in a couple of hours they’ll have some idea of what will be happening.'”
“I was getting a little worried at this point,” Kloots admitted to King, adding, “Nick has never been hospitalized. He has no pre-existing conditions.”
“The only time I have ever been in a hospital was to give birth to my son so we’re kind of new to the hospital,” she explained. “So anytime I hear you’re admitted, I get a little nervous.”
