Like, just coming around me in the kitchen and like, you know, grabbing my waist.” Kloots candidly admitted that she felt she “lost” her femininity. “I lost feeling sexy… and then you're a mom on top of that,” she continued.  “I had to realize that, like, grief took that from me, took away that feeling, and I had to go find out how I could figure that out,” she said before revealing that she rediscovered dance again. Kloots was formerly a Radio City Rockette and Broadway dancer. “I go to this sexy dance heels class every Monday night,” she added. “Literally, it just made me find sexiness again.”  Noam Galai/Getty Amanda Kloots, Nick and Elvis Cordero on August 27, 2019 in New York City.

I got this,’ ” she continued. “I lost that.”  Although trauma and grief would become all-encompassing for Kloots, she said she had to learn how to “heal all these different parts” of herself. “I think that's a common ... you don't realize that that's a part of healing, that you are gonna have to just keep doing these leaps.” She explained how becoming a single parent is also a part of her grief, however, she was able "to tackle life in so many different directions in order to keep moving forward,” adding, “It can't just be one thing.” Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.
