McCall, IDAHO — A wedding video featuring a groom reading vows to his new stepdaughter has gone viral.

During the wedding ceremony last year, NASCAR driver Brian Scott recited vows to his bride, Whitney Kay, and her then 3-year-old daughter Brielle. Scott kneeled down, looked Brielle in the eyes and promised to love and care for her (the moment starts at 4:10 in the video):

“I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life. 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.”

The video went viral this week after being shared on social media. The video now has over 900,000 views, with more than 600,000 views over the past 24 hours.

Scott told HuffPost Weddings the entire moment was “emotional and surreal.”

“It was really when I was reading my vows to Brielle that I got the most choked up,” he told the Huffington Post. “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.”

The Scotts now live in Charlotte, North Carolina. They welcomed a baby boy in November.
