Amidst an emotional audience, Jefferson professed his love to little "Gi" and stated how much he enjoyed being around her, from ensuring she brushed her teeth and finished all her food to poking fun at her.
THE BEST DADDY-DAUGHTER DUO
He mentioned how he loved calling Giovanna by her nicknames, like "little flower" and "little sheep," and how much she meant to him, even though he wasn't her biological dad. Jefferson also expressed:
"If I could ask God anything, it would be to have you as my daughter. I would be the proudest father in the world to have such a beautiful, intelligent, and educated daughter like you."
The doting step-dad openly declared that his commitment was not only to Jessica but also to little Giovanna. "I also give you love, my love. I will take care of you and always protect you and never let anything bad happen to you," concluded Jefferson.
A UNIVERSAL MESSAGE OF LOVE
Giovanna watched her stepfather struggle with words as he confessed his love to her. The little girl wiped tears from her eyes, grabbed the microphone, and told Jefferson he was the "father of her heart."
She also mentioned how grateful and fortunate she felt to have him as her step-dad. Soon afterward, the daddy-daughter duo shared a long and emotional hug, with the entire hall crying tears of joy.
The soul-stirring wedding video was shared on YouTube in February 2017 and has garnered more than 11 million views to date.
