The sweet video has gone viral with the full clip posted by Ms Yeo being seen over 6 million times, with more than 13,000 comments left by netizens across the globe.

Before handing his daughter over to the groom, the emotional father tells him, "I'm passing my precious daughter to you."
He goes on to say, "Put her every time (in) first place, in every situation."
He then prays a blessing over them.
But what he says next dissolved even the hardest of hearts into jelly.
"If one day you ever have a change of heart that you don't love my daughter anymore, please don't hurt her," he says.
"Just bring her back to me and give her back to me."
The equally emotional groom replies, "It's not going to happen."
Then the trio embrace each other.
"The very first time I saw my dad cry," wrote Ms Yeo in her caption.
"Girl he made the WORLD cry at your wedding!" wrote a TikTok user, with many commenting how the video had them bawling.
Said another, "Your dad didn't make you cry! He has made everyone cry! God bless Dad and all his loved ones."
"The part that made me cry was the part where he told him that if he doesn't want her anymore, send her back," commented another person.
Responding to the comment, Ms Yeo wrote: "Lol (it) destroyed my husband also."
She talked about how lucky she is to have such a father.
Between all the "feels" though, one commenter added some laughter.
Said the comment, which has got over 12,000 likes so far, "He's saying contact the manufacturer if you have any issues!"
