Nick was hospitalized with COVID-19 in March 2020 and eventually tested negative but still underwent a series of health complications and died that July aged 41. 

Amanda, like Michael, has been left a single parent on account of her bereavement – she and Nick shared a son called Elvis who is now two.

Since losing her husband Amanda has co-written a memoir, joined The Talk as a hostess and competed on Dancing With The Stars.

She fired up her Instagram account Monday night to post a picture of herself raising a glass with Michael as they sat at a restaurant table over a spread of food.

‘Finally met this guy in person after being Instagram friends for a year!! Lots of fried food, drinks, great chats and laughs!’ she gushed in the caption.

Michael joined this year’s season of The Bachelorette where he could be seen competing for Katie Thurston’s affections.

However he quit the show after a FaceTime chat in which James said: ‘Maybe Daddy left because he don’t want to see me.’

Michael revealed it was ‘breaking me that I’m here when he’s thinking that’ and declared he was going home because James ‘needs his dad.’ 

During an interview a year ago Amanda explained why she gave fans regular social media updates about Nick’s final illness.

She shared on Good Morning America: ‘I’m very glad that it made an impact for hopefully for people to take this virus more seriously.’
