She married a soldier who had a four-year-old son.

Over the weekend, two members of the United States armed forces exchanged their vows, but the attention was focused on the groom’s kid, who is just four years old.

On Saturday, Emily Leehan, a senior airman in the Air Force, stepped at the altar at Quincy Cellars in New York to marry Marine Sgt. Joshua Newville, and she also recited separate vows to his son Gage. The ceremony took place in New York.

As she continued to speak her heartfelt words, her soon-to-be stepson became overcome with emotion. He began to cry and then embraced his soon-to-be stepmother.

According to what Newville told ABC News, “When she started repeating the vows, that’s when the emotion took over, and that’s when he lost it.” “The entirety of the day was quite emotional, so all I could focus on was trying to keep myself together and keeping him together,”

Emily completed her speech by saying, “I may not have given you the gift of life, but life undoubtedly gave me the gift of you.” Gage was standing there with his father as she said these words.

They both gave each other hugs and kisses.

Immediately following the event, Gage was informed of the positive impact he had on the significance of the occasion. “We were telling him, ‘You did amazing,’ and our family and friends were saying that and telling him he made it even better,” Newville said.

The little boy, who is just four years old, is a huge admirer of the “Star Wars” franchise and wore a Darth Vader mask as he attended the reception with the wedding party to the iconic theme song from the film series.

The newlyweds, both of whom are currently serving in the armed forces, have decided against going on a honeymoon and instead plan to go back to their home at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.

Gage, who has a new stepmother and lives with his biological father and stepmother, also has a “wonderful mother” named Kali Nuckols, who resides in Virginia Beach. Gage travels to see his biological mother as much as he can.
