Heart-warming moment groom asks stepdaughter, 6, to be his 'child for life' with own ring as he marries her mum
Diogo Bolant, 37, knelt down to be on the little Isadora's level – totally surprising her – to pop her the question in front of the altar: "Do you agree to be my daughter forever?"
This is heartrending moment a bridegroom presented his new six-year-old stepdaughter, 6, with a ring in the middle of marrying her mum – and asked her to be his 'child for life'.
Diogo Bolant, 37, knelt down to be on the little Isadora's level – totally surprising her – to pop her the question in front of the altar.
As tears welled up in wedding guests' eyes, he began: "I want to ask you something.
"Do you agree to be my daughter forever?"
Isadora – who was the maid of honour for her mother Nicole de Souza, 27 – replied 'yes' without any hestitation.
The footage shows Diogo get down on his knee during the ceremony
The heart-warming moment was caught on film during the ceremony at Sao Bernardo do Campo, Sao Paulo.
The footage shows her burst into tears and sob uncontrollably as Diogo revealed a ring from a box and slipped it onto her tiny little finger.
The wedding officiate gave his blessing to the vow – announcing: "So seals the alliance."
Little Isadora then buried her head into her mum's wedding dress – overcome with emotion.
She can then be seen hugging her new stepfather as she cries on his shoulder.
Diogo kissed her on the cheek as Nicole grasped her hand.
The businessman said afterwards: "Isadora always wanted us to get married. And I wanted to do a special tribute for her so she felt part of the moment in front of our guests."
"I had this idea of a surprise with Nicole a little while ago. It was so Isa could feel part of this family that is forming."
His overjoyed bride Nicole told Brazilian newspaper Extra: "Wow! What a surprise the video has been. We had no idea it would make such an impression.
"We wanted Isa to participate in our wedding ceremony because she is at that phase where she loves all things about princesses and is in love with the idea of being a bride.
"Diogo has this love, a true love, and affection for her [Isadora] which is bigger than any title."
The footage – which has received more than 9million views on Facebook – was shot by the Blessed Space Company wedding organisers.
