This Kid Gave The Most Hilarious Best Man Speech At His Dad's Wedding
There is something about weddings that make them one of the most exciting parties that you'll ever get invited to. This could be for many reasons — the delicious food (including some great cake), the people in attendance, the dancing, or the act of gathering together in one place to celebrate the bride and groom's love for one another. The love that people have for the couple is one of the best parts about weddings, and is made all the more clear through speeches made throughout the night, especially when they're done by those super close to the couple. For example, take this kid who gave the most hilarious best man speech at his dad's wedding, which serves as proof that sons are definitely the original best men.
Being the best man in a wedding is a very important job. Not only is the best man responsible for standing by the groom's side throughout the big day, but they're responsible for delivering one of the most important speeches of the night. Needless to say, being the best man at a wedding is not for the faint of heart, or for those who have stage fright. This is is why it is a good thing that 10-year-old Jaydon Rabatin was up for the job when his dad, Kevin Rabatin, asked him to be the Best Man at his wedding to now-wife, Brie Rabatin, according to People. Because his lack of nerves and closeness to his father contributed to one of the best best man speeches you will hear all year.
In the hilarious video, shared to Kevin's Facebook page, you can see just how great Jaydon is at being the best man.
The speech starts off in a very joking manner. Jaydon said in the video, according to People:
The day has come that this man is getting married and I don't know how to feel about all of it. 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 waaaay back. It's like I have known him since the first breath I took.
These statements are true. Jaydon and his father go far back enough to his own birth. And unfortunately, Jaydon won't have another single friend as close as his dad any longer. But I'm sure he can find solace in his single friends in his elementary school class, rather than his own dad.
While it is sad that Jaydon "bachelor buddy," he is gaining a step mother, after all, which is a pretty great thing. Jaydon continued with the wise cracking jokes while expressing his gratitude for the couple and his new stepmother. Jaydon said in the speech, according to People:
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. I hope you two have nothing but true happiness together. I look forward to watching you two grow old together.
While Jaydon appeared to be calm, cool, and collected in the video, he told FOX 29 that appearances are not what they seem — and that he was actually a little scared to give the speech. "I was actually kind of nervous, I'm not going to lie," Jaydon said. But still, Jaydon had a great time giving the speech once it happened, according to FOX 29. "It was pretty fun because everyone laughed and I had a great time," he said.
Brie told People that Jaydon's speech was actually a surprise to the couple and that they had no idea that he would be giving a speech until four days before the wedding. But it is a good thing that he gave the speech, because Brie told People that it was the star of the wedding (besides the actual couple, of course):
It made everybody laugh. He basically stole the night and stole the hearts of our guests. It made my heart melt, the parts he said about me.
And Kevin told ABC News that hearing his son give the speech was a moment of pride for him:
That was pretty cool. I figure he'd be nervous and stumbling over it, but he did great. I was nervous for him. There was a lot of people and everyone's staring at him.
After that speech, there is no doubt that Jaydon will be his dad's best man for the rest of his life.
