With tears in her eyes, she promised to love Henry as if he was her own and the best wife to his dad.
Immediately she finished, Henry ran out to her, and they emotionally hugged with tears in their eyes and returned to hug his dad.
Move made the two closer
According to Daily Mail, Vanessa, a nurse, noted she wanted Henry to know she would not only be the woman married to her dad.
She said she was nervous because she did not know how Henry, who has a shy personality, would react - but it felt right.
After finishing Craig's vows, she moved on to Henry, and her tears started flowing the moment they looked at each other.
The 30-year-old was happy that she was able to tell Henry how she felt, and the little man revealed that he felt closer to his stepmom than before.
Vanessa and Craig got married in Cambridge, Minnesota, on December 11, after getting engaged in August 2019 before the pandemic blew up.
The couple met during their second year in college, and Vanessa was dating Craig's roommate at the time.
Well kept secret
Only the bridesmaids and her husband's mum knew about her surprise vows to Henry and even helped her practice them.
Vanessa said she did not see the guests reactions until after watching the video as she was focused on delivering her message to her stepson.
She said they watched the video together with Henry and started tearing up, which she thought was adorable.
