Though it was her father's big day, Leah found herself back in the spotlight after a video of her speech and of her dancing with her father and stepmother went viral.

"We put off the wedding because my daughter was battling cancer. Now that [the wedding] is officially here, it's the beginning of our future and the end to a hard time," the NFL player told People magazine.

Leah served as the flower girl during the wedding ceremony as her father wed longtime fiancée Asha Joyce inside the New York Public Library. She also gave a sweet speech during the reception, caught on camera by actress Holly Robinson Peete.

"When I saw [Leah] even before the wedding, I got emotional. We'd been waiting for this moment for a long time," Devon told People.
