Writing one’s own vows isn’t easy. Doing it twice is even harder. But Cole LaBrant, who recently married Savannah Soutas, did just that.
After saying “I do” to his new wife, the 20-year-old social media star then got down on one knee and made similar assurances to his 4-year-old now stepdaughter.
“Everleigh Rose, I promise to always love you little girl, and I promise that I’ll always love your mummy,” he said, tears running down his cheeks. “That I will never hurt or be mean to her. Always monkey, I love you.”

As Soutas, who rose to fame on musical.ly for short videos she’d film with her daughter, explained in her vows, she never expected LaBrant — let alone anyone — to fall for someone who already had a child with someone else.
“I was just coming out of a really bad relationship, a relationship that took everything out of me. I had in my head that nobody would accept me or like me since I had a kid,” she said.
The pair met in California a year ago, got engaged six months later, and were married on July 9.

“Before I asked Savannah if she would marry me, I brought out a tiny ring and asked Everleigh if it was OK for me to help be her daddy,” LaBrant, who’s from Alabama, wrote on Instagram in January. “I will forever cherish this beautiful moment. Our engagement was just as important for Everleigh as it was for Savannah and me. She has changed my entire life, and now I get to be in hers forever.”
The video from their wedding, which was shared across their channels, on which he’s known as the Super Cole, has since gone viral with millions of views.
Reactions to the video have been overwhelmingly positive.

The couple also shared a video from their honeymoon, where LaCole, a Christian and virgin until he tied the knot, confirmed they consummated their marriage.
Congratulations to the newlyweds — and Everleigh!
