The relationship between stepdads and step-children is not celebrated enough. But one stepfather made sure to make his stepchild feel like the queen of the world. He wrote beautiful vows for her and read it to her before turning to make his vow to her Mom.

Another user wrote, "I think it’s very sweet. When I remarried, it was very important to both myself and my husband that we say vows to my sons from my first marriage, because it wasn’t just about the two of us. We wrote the vows together, and it’s my favorite memory from our wedding." Another wrote, "Yeah I thought it was really sweet, I almost teared up when they started crying."
The video is captioned, "His vows to his stepdaughter."

Can I be your daddy?" he asks, as the girl gets emotional and says yes! The two hug adorably as the man says, "I'll love you forever, I promise. And I'll take care of you and everything."

Another said, "I'll love you forever I promise.' aw, too warm for my cold heart!" Another user wrote, "Brah the girl got a ring and all the kid got was a Wii remote! Joke aside, if more men were like him the world would be a better place."
