10-Yr-Old Steals Spotlight At Dad’s Wedding With Hilarious Best Man Speech.

Speaking in front of large groups of people is enough to make any adult’s palms sweat. But for a little boy named Jaydon, it’s just an opportunity to show off his comedic genius.

Before Kevin Rabatin and his fiancée Briana began planning their 2017 wedding, Kevin already knew who his best man would be: his 10-year-old son, Jaydon.

And according to Kevin, the kid proved he was more than capable of taking on all the duties that come with such an important role — especially when it came time to give a speech on the big day. Kevin and Briana hadn’t even known Jaydon would be giving a best man speech until four days before their wedding in Wilmington, Delaware. He’d been secretly practicing with his mom.

“He did a great job,” Kevin said. “I was nervous for him. I tried to give him a pep talk before the wedding.”

But it became pretty apparent Jaydon didn’t need it when he stole the spotlight from the bride and groom, cracking all their wedding guests up:

“The day has come that this man is getting married. I’m not too sure how I feel about all of it,” Jaydon began. “Don’t get me wrong. I love Brie. Isn’t she the most beautiful bride? But this means I’m losing my bachelor buddy. We go way back. It’s like I have known him since my first breath I took.”

The little comedian definitely made his father proud… if not a little embarrassed.

“As we grow older, we also mature together, but here is our confession: We have never been the cleanest of guys together. Without Brie, I don’t think we would ever have clean underwear or socks,” Jaydon added.

But on a more serious note, he described how great it’s been for him to watch his father grow up after Briana came into his life — though he’s very thankful she didn’t bring along any “horrible” stepchildren.

Things took an especially sentimental turn when Jaydon spoke from his heart, expressing love and gratitude for his new stepmom.

“I hope you two have nothing but true happiness together. I look forward to watching you two grow old together,” he said. “There is nothing more important as a son than to see my dad happy and that’s what he is when he is with Brie. Thank you for making my dad happy.”

This kid sure has a knack for eliciting belly laughs one second and tears the next! We’re so happy one of the wedding guests caught his speech on camera so he and his family will always be able to look back on such a great memory.
