Choosing the maid of honor and the best man wisely at a wedding is essential. Usually, these two are the couple's best friends or closest siblings. Their roles are crucial because they give out a toast to the newlyweds most of the time. So, it must be someone who knows them from the heart.

At the reception, Jaden gave a sweet speech that captured many hearts. In the boy's words:

"Hi everyone, I'm my dad's junior best man. I want to thank you all for being here today to celebrate my mom and dad. I wanna start by saying to my mom, I think you look so pretty. I love that we are goofy together, and you can throw the baseball really hard."

Furthermore, Jaden was grateful to have Whitney as his mother because she was very caring and available at all times. Speaking about his dad, the little boy said:


"When my dad asked me to be his best man, I thought it meant being his sidekick, and after he told me what it was, it made me feel special. My dad spoils me with video games, and we like to rough house in the living room."


Above all, Jaden loved his dad because he was as caring as Whitney. The young boy said he was excited about the wedding because he hoped to have a baby brother.

Also, Jaden noted that his parents had a lot of love and care. He concluded his speech by saying:

"I'm glad we are happy together. I love you guys."



In 2014, netizens witnessed a similar sight when Nick Del Bono asked his seven-year-old son, Vincent, to be his best man. Naturally, the little boy was excited about the role and prepared a three-page speech.

When the special day finally came, the little fellow walked confidently to the stage, held the microphone, and gave one of the sweetest speeches. He left the guests in stitches as he recounted funny details about his father.

Most importantly, the boy admitted that his father was a superhero. He gave a long list of the thoughtful things his dad had done for him. In conclusion, Vincent was happy to see his dad marry his stepmom, but he was most excited to welcome his baby brother.
