On Friday (September 17) The Talk co-host Amanda Kloots took to her social media account to remember her late husband, Blue Bloods actor Nick Cordero on what would have been his 43rd birthday.

“Happy 43rd birthday to you Nick,” Kloots writes to the Blue Bloods actor. “It’s really hard to not think about what we would be doing today to celebrate you.”

Kloots goes on to write that she would probably be taking the Blue Bloods actor for a really nice steak dinner with some red velvet cake for dessert.

“I hope you are up in heaven having a big party with your dad and because I’m wishing the best for you, Prince.”

Kloots then adds that she and their son Elvis will be missing Cordero today as they to him from earth. “

If you were here I know what you’d say, ‘I’m the luckiest man on the planet. I live a blessed life.’”

The Blue Bloods actor was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital on March 30, 2020, and was eventually diagnosed with COVID-19. He was placed in the ICU and was put on a ventilator. He was also treated with dialysis. In April 2020, his right leg was amputated due to a blood clot. He also experience lung damage in May 2020. On July 5, 2020, Cordero passed away at the age of 41.
