That moment, where you look into your partner’s eyes and vow to love and cherish them for the rest of your life, is one that most people rarely forget. It’s the moment that the bride and groom look forward to as they take each other as husband and wife. However, one groom decided to use that moment to declare his love for another girl in the very same room.
Surrounded by all the wedding guests, Jefferson stood at the altar on his wedding day with his eyes locked on his bride, Jessica, before he proclaimed his love for the other girl.
“There’s a person here that makes this day possible and my next words are for her,” he said, according to the translation of his words by Sovibes Stories.
In front of his emotional bride and every single guest there, Jefferson got down on his knees and made a heartfelt vow to Jessica’s daughter, Giovanna, who was eight at the time, according to Newsner.
Surprising everyone there, Jefferson said to the little girl, “I know I’m annoying sometimes, I get mad at you, I annoy you so you brush your teeth and your hair right and eat all your food.”
He mentioned how he gives little Giovanna a lot of nicknames like “little flower” and “little sheep”, and how he pokes her and tickles her and makes her mad. Jefferson admitted that he feels like he’s the more childish one when compared to the 8-year-old and added, “I also give you love, my love, to take care of you, to always protect you, and to not let anything bad to happen to you.”
“I can’t really explain my feelings for you. After all I’m not your biological father, like we always say I’m your stepfather,” Jefferson said. “I can’t explain the love I feel for you because I think that love doesn’t have an explanation.”
He may not be Giovanna’s biological father, but Jefferson showed that still loves her dearly. And on his wedding day, he not only declared his love for his wife but also to the little girl that he was going to be a stepfather to.
With tears in his eyes, Jefferson finally said, “If I could ask God anything, it would be to have you as my daughter. I would be the proudest father in the world to have such a beautiful, intelligent, and educated daughter like you.”
He promises her that he would fill her life with love, protection, and happiness before he wrapped his arms around her.
Jefferson was no longer able to hold back his tears when Giovanna then took the microphone from him and told everyone how grateful she was to have him in his life.
For Jefferson, his wedding day wasn’t just the day he made a long-lasting commitment to his wife, but it was also the day he vowed to be an important part of Giovanna’s life.
While Jessica will always look back at her wedding day fondly, her husband gave her all the more reason to believe that he was with someone who will love her daughter as much as her. Jefferson’s grand gesture was truly special for the two women that are now his family.
Watch the touching moment where he makes a special vow to Giovanna.
