People magazine editor Jeremy Parsons is here, sharing the most talked about stories of the year. It was a big year for royal news, but one of the year’s top viral stories will definitely make you smile (and might even have you reaching for some tissues).

When Pennsylvania bride Katie Musser decided to marry Jeremy Musser, she knew that meant Jeremy’s 4-year-old son, Landon, and Landon’s mom, Casey, were becoming a part of her family too.

So instead of just making vows to Jeremy, Katie wrote a special set of vows for little Landon, that even included Jeremy’s ex-wife

"I promise to love Daddy with all my heart. I promise to be a best friend to your mommy and your daddy, Tyler,” said Musser. “We will be one big family that I promise you will have for the rest of your life."
Her touching words were meant to show that co-parenting between remarried spouses—often automatically categorized as strained and stressful—can be a beautiful thing. Awwwww.
