When NASCAR driver Brian Scott tied the knot last year, he read his vows to his bride as you’d expect – but he didn’t stop there. Once he finished proclaiming his love and commitment to his bride Whitney Kay, he took a knee and turned his attention to another woman entering his life: his new stepdaughter.
Scott realized he was entering into a commitment with 3-year-old Brielle Kay, too. Here’s how he let her know she’ll have his unwavering support throughout her life journey.
“I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life,” he said. “I vow to make you say your prayers before you eat. I promise to read you stories at night, to always tuck you in real tight. I vow to show you how a man should treat a woman in my relationship with your mother. And above all else, I vow to protect you, care for you, and love you forever.”
Here’s video footage of Scott’s vow to Brielle:
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Scott said he completely underestimated how choked up he would get during his vows to Brielle.
“I always felt like my vows to my wife Whitney would maybe affect me more and I would get more choked up during those, making those promises to her," he said. "But I misread that one. It was really when I was reading my vows to Brielle that I got the most choked up. It really all just hits home in that moment -- you're there and dressed up and all the people around. You're living in the moment. It affects you more than when you write it or plan for it or practice it. You get engulfed by it."
