These days, there are millions of blended families being built all around the country and world.
While some lament the fact that couples decide to call it quits, especially when they have kids together, others see it as an opportunity for everyone involved to find happiness and bring even more incredible people into their families. For kids, this can be a little confusing, so it’s amazing to see partners putting in the effort to make sure that the children feel included in all these big changes. Such was the case with Bryce Breland when he asked Amanda Hoda to be his wife.
Bryce decided that he was ready to ask Amanda to take their relationship to the next level while on a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. But there was one other special lady he wanted to ask as well!
Amanda had been a single mom before Bryce came into her life to 7-year-old Mckaylin. He wanted to ensure that his soon-to-be step-daughter felt comfortable with this new phase of their lives, so he came up with an adorable idea.
Bryce’s mom was on one of the floats in the Mardi Gras parade, so the whole gang headed down there to watch. Amanda assumed that all the fanfare was for his mom’s awesome appearance on the float, but then she took a closer look at what the woman was holding.
It was a sign that read, “Amanda, will you marry me?” She was totally stunned! “Everyone knew this was going on,” she said. “His brother filmed it, his dad waved down the float driver so he would know where to stop. I was the only one who was clueless!”
Amazingly, even little Mckaylin was in on the secret! She and Bryce had gone on a daddy-daughter date to pick out the rings. Of course, Amanda said yes. While she was taking it all in, Bryce got down on one knee again, this time, though, to ask Mckaylin if she would give him the honor of being her daddy. Needless to say, everyone was moved by the sweet gesture.
