Things had been looking up for the family, with Cordero waking up from his coronavirus-induced coma last week and Kloots celebrating a “small win” on Monday (18 May) after doctors pulled out fewer secretions from his lungs than they had previously found.
However, on Wednesday, dancer Kloots admitted that things had got worse in an emotional Instagram Story video filmed in her car.
“Nick has had a bad morning. Unfortunately, things are going a little downhill at the moment, so I am asking again for all the prayers, mega-prayers, right now,” she said.
“Please cheer and please pray for Nick today, and I know that this virus is not going to get him down.”
Kloots, who has a 10-month-old son with the actor, continued: “It’s not how his story ends, so just keep us in your thoughts and prayers today. Thank you.”
In a separate Instagram post, she wrote: “Mega prayers for this special man right now. God continue to grant miracles.”
Cordero was admitted to hospital on 30 March after being diagnosed with pneumonia, testing positive for coronavirus and being put on a ventilator just two days later.
The actor then faced a number of complications, including septic shock and two “mini strokes”, with his right leg needing to be amputated due to blood clotting.
