2-Year-Old Boy Stands In For Marine Brother Who Couldn't Make Prom

Skylar Fontaine, of New Orleans, was devastated when she learned that her Marine boyfriend, Gage Moak, wouldn’t be able to accompany her to prom. So, she got some help from her boyfriend’s brother, 2-year-old Clay Jr.

On prom day, March 16, Clay Jr. dressed in the little Marine uniform and smiled wide as he posed for photos with Fontaine, who was dressed in a royal blue gown with gold detail.

Clay Jr. didn’t actually go to the prom, but Fontaine says the little boy was excited to take the pictures before the big dance. 

Fontaine says the photos eased the pain of missing her boyfriend, whom she says is 1,000 miles away at Military Occupational Specialty.
