Broadway actor Nick Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, is asking for prayers as her husband was admitted to ICU after being misdiagnosed.

Amanda took to Instagram to share her story alongside a black and white photo of Nick with their son, Elvis.

“My sweet husband needs your prayers please,” she began. “Nick has been sick for awhile with what we were told last week was pneumonia. Unfortunately we think he was misdiagnosed and we are waiting to hear if this is in fact COVID. He is scared, in the ICU and now unconscious so his body can get enough oxygen. We are all trying to stay positive and strong knowing that he is in the best care.”

Due to the coronavirus spread, hospital visitors are not allowed to stay with their family members or significant others while in the hospital and that has Amanda missing her husband.

“I miss him terribly,” she added. “I’m not allowed there to visit of course and can do nothing to help him. Nick is scared too, this has gone from bad to worse. He isn’t allowed to eat or drink, he is very weak and having a hard time breathing. Elvis and I are feeling completely fine. My hubby is fighting like a champ but this is serious. Please stay home everybody. Thank you to everyone who has been helping us so far you know who are and you are all angels. 🙏🏻”

Amanda and Nick met in 2014 when they both appeared in 2014’s Bullets Over Broadway. The couple became engaged in March 2017 and married later that year in September 2017. They welcomed their son Elvis in June 2019.

Nick is known for his work on Broadway as Cheech in the musical Bullets Over Broadway, Dennis in Rock of Ages in 2012, Earl in Waitress and Sonny in A Bronx Tale. Amanda has appeared in Good Vibrations and Follies. 

We wish Nick a full recovery.
