Kloots continued, “I’m so grateful to be here today. I do well when I keep busy. But it’s also just nice to be here and talk to you guys, and it’s very comforting. I listen to Nick’s music all the time…I feel so grateful that I have that, that I have his music to listen to and hear his voice.”
Talking about her 1-year-old son, Elvis, she added, “The last time he saw Nick was in March. He was eight months old, but he knows who his dad is. And I show him that picture, and he holds it, and he kisses it and my heart just melts.”
Meanwhile, “NCIS: New Orleans” co-stars and real-life husband and wife Scott Bakula and Chelsea Field appeared on Friday’s episode to tease season 7 of the crime drama, which premieres Sunday, Nov. 8.

“Well, we thought, since New Orleans is such a big character in our show, that to skip it or ignore it wouldn’t be fair to the city or all the characters in our show,” Bakula said of how the new season will address the coronavirus pandemic.

“So we decided to jump back in, very near the beginning of the pandemic, and we dealt with how all of our characters were affected by the first few months of COVID,” he continued. “It’s intense, it’s very emotional, but there’s also something kind of cathartic about it.”
