“I have to tell you the cutest story,” Kloots told her Instagram followers. “I, of course, didn’t get it on camera because I didn’t expect this to happen. But I was showing Elvis videos of Nick and Elvis saw it and smiled, and I’m not even kidding you, leans into the phone and give his dad a kiss.”
She added: ‘I kept playing the video again and that he kept attempting to press the button. He kept planning and out, kissing the telephone, kissing his dad.
“My heart, of course, just melted,” she says in the video. “In a way, it made me feel so good because it made me feel like he recognizes Nick, you know? Like he knows who he is and he recognizes his dad even though it’s been over three months.”
