Amanda Kloots celebrates her son Elvis Eduardo as he begins a new school year.

The adorable 3 year old son of The speech co-host, 40, and late husband Nick Cordero danced holding his back-to-school photo sign while his mother tried to get the perfect shot.

“Back to school! 🍎,” Kloots captioned the sweet Instagram reel, where Elvis is wearing a gold and white striped shirt and matching gold and white shorts and stands on a tiger print rug in front of a door.

Elvis’ sign says he wants to be a ghost, his favorite food is ice cream, and his favorite sport is football.

Late last month, Kloots revealed it was getting “harder and harder” to say goodbye to her son in a heartfelt Instagram post. Kloots had been spending time with his son in Canada while filming his upcoming vacation movie, Fit for Christmas.

“We were both in tears today, hugging each other, shaking hands, hugging and kissing over and over again. It’s new…that kind of goodbye” , she wrote alongside a photo of the mother-son duo sharing a kiss on the beach. “He now understands when I have to leave him.”

The TV host concluded the post with a special thank you to everyone who has supported her as she balances work and family.

“I’m so lucky to have a village of amazing people helping me on a daily basis,” she said. “I couldn’t do anything without you. You know who you are and I will be eternally grateful to you.”

Earlier this year, Kloots opened up about living with grief as Elvis’ mother.

“You know how you peel an onion and it makes you cry? you think about it, it’s your grief, that onion.”

She added, “Anytime Elvis does something cute and I wish Nick was there to see it, it’s like taking a diaper off and it makes you cry.”

Kloots looked to the future, saying, “When Elvis ever gets married, it’ll be another kind of five layers that I’ll pull off.”

“When your person dies, a lot of people will say, ‘Don’t worry. In a year, you’ll be so much better.’ And you are, in a way. But I want someone to say, “Don’t worry. Heartbreak never ends, and that’s okay,” she said.
