People gather with their relatives and friends to celebrate and have a good time during weddings. What better way to celebrate love than by spending time with the ones you care about the most?

It is mostly expected that, at some point, one of the guests may ‘steal the show’. This wedding party was disrupted by a 9-year-old; he had something important to communicate.

Thousands of people across the world have fallen in love with Gus, this nine-year-old kid who broke down in tears while thanking his elder sister for “giving him a brother-in-law” during their wedding.

His heartfelt homage to his 27-year-old elder sister Katy has gone viral after the wedding videographer posted it online.

Gus, from Denver, Colorado, can be seen in the video greeting Katy and her new husband Troy Hudson, 25. Both were overwhelmed with emotion when Gus broke down in “tears of joy” while holding the mic, Spotlight reported.

Although the two siblings are separated for almost two decades, Gus is Katy’s half-brother. Still, he knows she is the greatest sister he could ask for. Gus would say: “She’s the best sister ever. Nobody else can compare!”

Gus gave the speech because he was so overwhelmed with emotion that he wanted it to be perfect. He was concerned that he wouldn’t spend as much time with Katy after she got engaged. Despite this, Gus realized it was something special.

“I am so happy that you guys got married today. And, I know I might seem a little sad up here [shuddering breath], but these are tears of joy. Katie, I love you so much, and I’m so happy you gave me a brother-in-law.”

That wasn’t all! Gus had one more piece of advice for everyone! For him, family is family, regardless of whether the word “extended” is overused.

What truly counts is if you “deep down” love them, and they “deep down” love you. It’s hard not to agree with Gus when he puts it that way.

Definitely, this is a speech no one will ever forget.
