Amanda Kloots is providing the world an update on the health of her husband, Nick Cordero.

The fitness maven, who shares a 1-year-old son with Cordero, recently said the Broadway star will likely need a double lung transplant in order to recover from the complications of the coronavirus.

Making an appearance on the Thursday episode of “CBS This Morning,” Kloots lamented her husband’s consistent health struggles since he was admitted into the hospital in late March.

Although Cordero, 41, has since emerged from a medically induced coma and has returned a negative test for the illness, Kloots, 38, maintained to co-host Gayle King that Cordero remains “extremely weak” and said there is a huge likelihood he will need to undergo a double lung transplant to give him the best chance at recovery.

"That is most likely the possibility," Kloots said, adding that finding a way for her husband to have the procedure is the “ultimate goal.”

"[There is] a 99 percent chance that he would be needing that in order to live the kind of life that I know my husband would want to live,” said Kloots. "That is a long road away and a lot of things would have to line up in order for Nick to be a candidate."

Kloots likened her daily hospital visits to see Cordero to a “vicious circle or the ICU dance because you just feel like you're in this momentum of going around, around, around like a hamster wheel.”
