In the photo, Amanda, who is dressed in a bright pink sweater in a nod to the holiday, can be seen cradling Elvis, one, as she plants a kiss on his head. She simply captioned the photo: "My Valentine".

While the mum-of-one was flooded with heart emojis in response to the sweet snap, some fans left touching messages for Amanda as she prepares to spend the romantic holiday without Nick, who sadly passed away last July.

Amanda and Broadway star Nick tied the knot in September 2017 and welcomed their son in 2019.

In March the following year, Nick was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was admitted to hospital in a critical condition. Tragically on 5 July 2020, after 95 days in hospital, he passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in La at the age of 41.

He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. [Our son] Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, every day."
