It’s not unusual for tears of joy to flow at weddings, but when they come from the eyes of a four-year-old boy watching his dad get married, it just melts your heart.
Gage Newville was standing next to his father, U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Joshua Newville, as he exchanged vows with his bride, Senior Airman Emily Leehan. As the three of them stood in front of their guests, Emily read a list of vows she had written specifically for her new stepson and little Gage immediately got emotional.
Emily told Gage, “I want you to be safe and to try your hardest and to be a good person. You are so extremely smart, handsome and kind to others. You have helped make me into the woman that I am today.” But Gage really began balling when Emily told him, “I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you.”
There wasn’t a dry eye to be found and the sweet video has gone viral.
