‘We could have chatted for days,’ Kloots told Us Weekly, adding that both made each other ‘feel less alone.’

‘People in our lives kept telling us both that we should meet based on how much we have in common. So we eventually started connecting over social media,’ Kloots shared on Thursday. 

‘When you are a widow and single parent, it is so wonderful to meet people that are in your same boat. It makes you feel less alone.’ 

The former Dancing With The Stars competitor lost her husband Nick Cordero after a battle with COVID-19 in July 2020, while Allio, 37, lost his wife Laura to cancer. 

Both are single parents with Kloots being mother to son Elvis, two, while Allio is raising four-year-old son James alone.

MIchael, 37, shot to fame on this year’s season of The Bachelorette and is raising his four-year-old son James alone after losing his wife Laura to cancer.

Meanwhile Amanda, 39, rose to public prominence last year while offering regular Instagram updates on her her late husband Nick Cordero’s battle with COVID-19.

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 following the loss – 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. 

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.’
