RIPLEY, N.Y. -- Many people cry at weddings, including a 4-year-old boy who will melt your heart.

Gage Newville became overwhelmed as his new stepmother, Senior Airman Emily Leehan, read the vows she wrote especially for him.

It happened Saturday at Leehan's wedding to U.S. Marine Sgt. Joshua Newville in Ripley, New York.

Leehan went on to say she might not have given Gage life, but life surely gave her the gift of him.

"I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you," she said.

The newlyweds are on active duty, so they will have to wait a bit for their honeymoon.
