4-Year-Old boy cries as stepmom reads wedding vows she wrote for him… ?VIDEO

If wedding vows make you cry, good luck getting through them. When Emily Lehan, a senior Air Force pilot, married US Marine Corps Sergeant Joshua Newville over the weekend at Quincy Cellars in New York, she also recited a list of individual vows to Newville’s four-year-old son, Gage. “I want you to be safe, try your best, and be a good person,” Lihan told Gage as he was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry.

Luckily, this sweet moment was captured by their wedding photographer. “I know you and I will butt heads,” Lehan continued as Gage hugged her and continued to cry. “But I hope with all my heart that when you are a grown man, you will understand my methods and understand that I only did what was best for you and that I love you.” “You helped me become the woman I am today and I may not have given you the gift of life, but life has certainly given me you,” Lihan finished, leaning in to hug Gage and kiss him kiss.

Gage stood by her side as his father recited his vows to Lehan, and she ended up hugging him at the end of the ceremony. “When she started to say the vows, the emotions took over and he lost them,” Newville told ABC News. “The whole day was pretty emotional, so I just tried to control myself and keep him together.” As ABC News reports, since the newlyweds are still on active duty, they are postponing their honeymoon to return to the McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst joint base in New Jersey.
