Kloots shared throwback photos from Elvis' birth last year, recounting her time in labor and calling it the "best day of my life."

"One year ago today! I was admitted into the hospital on June 9th after laboring at home for 32 hours," she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. "I thought for sure I’d be around 4 cm dilated, but I was only 1! I immediately got the epidural and finally felt better enough to rest. Things moved pretty quickly and I got to 6cm by early evening. We thought Elvis would be born before midnight!!!"

"However," she continued, "hours went by and I wouldn’t dilate past 6 cm. Elvis’s heart rate would drop each time they pushed the pitocin. At 52 hours they suggested a c section, which at this point I was ready for. When they took him out the cord was wrapped around his little leg, which is the reason he wouldn’t drop down, I couldn’t dilate and his heart rate would drop."

Added Kloots: "Thank God we didn’t try to push it any further. Elvis was born at 6:41am that next morning, June 10th 💙 Best day of my life. I can’t believe he turns 1 tomorrow."

She also shared photos of Cordero visiting Elvis in the neonatal intensive care unit at the time, reflecting on his current health battle.

"When Elvis was born they rushed him right to the NICU because there was fluid in his lungs. He stayed there for two nights and Nick and I visited him all day," wrote Kloots. "We couldn’t stop staring at him and eventually holding him. The NICU nurses are INCREDIBLE! It is amazing to witness what they do."

She added: "My two Cordero men: last June Elvis is in the NICU. This June Nick is in the ICU. These guys are really trying to take me down 😂."
