The Broadway star passed away last month (Jul20) after losing his battle with Covid-19 aged just 41. Since then, Amanda, who shares son Elvis with Nick, has been keeping her fans updated as to how she's doing on her social media pages, and took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday (06Aug20) to reveal the sport has been keeping her motivated while she's grieving.
"I just got home from my tennis lesson and I have to tell you, I am just loving it so much. I love that I get to leave the house, move my body, sweat, focus and think about something completely new and different. It's really, really helping me," she told her followers.
"I had a really hard time lately - the last two weeks especially. These little things do seem to be helping here and there, and this new hobby is a great thing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is grieving or going through a loss to dive into something completely new."
Amanda's admission came after she marked the one-month anniversary of her husband's death on Instagram on Wednesday, sharing a snap of herself with her late spouse and writing, "Dear Nick, it's been one month since you've been gone. I wish I could say it has got easier, but with each passing day I miss you more and more. I wish I could see you, hold you, kiss you, talk to you, hear your voice, get a hug, see you with Elvis. Your huge presence in our lives is missed every second of every day. I love you forever and always."
