Bride Reads Vows To Future Stepson, But Never Expects 4-Year-Old To Start Sobbing At The Altar

Jess is a curly-haired Jersey girl who adores penguins and watches the worst reality shows on TV.

Marriage brings together two people who love each other to the moon and back. It also joins two completely different families to create a larger, newer one.

So when Senior Airman Emily Leehan stood at the altar with her new husband, US Marine Sergeant Joshua Newville, she was ready to start their new family together — but not before speaking to someone very special.

In the video below, posted on July 23, 2017, Emily holds the microphone firmly as she reads her vows to her new stepson, 4-year-old Gage.

As the little boy stands between his dad and stepmom, he grows more and more emotional.

As Emily pours her heart out, Gage loses it and breaks down. With each word she says, his cries grow larger and stronger. The 4-year-old clings to Emily’s waist and starts sobbing uncontrollably. Clearly, this little guy is touched by the moment.

As he lets it all out, his family smiles and chuckles, acknowledging just how sweet and meaningful his reaction is.

In the end, the beautiful bride is able to finish sharing her moving vows as Gage stands proudly between his parents.

Just wait until you hear what she says!

Check out this heartwarming moment between stepmom and stepson in the video below, and please SHARE if you think they will both remember this sweet moment for the rest of their lives.
