This girl's cousin did the *sweetest* thing when she was stood up for prom

You’ve got your prom dress, you're all glammed up and your family’s ready to take pictures—but then your date doesn’t show. How awful! That’s exactly what happened to Arkansas high school junior Haleigh Wiley. But don't worry, she wasn't sad for long. In a heartwarming turn of events, her 5-year-old cousin saved the day!

Haleigh's cousin Bentley stepped in as Haleigh’s date after her boyfriend canceled. She told Yahoo Style, “Well, my date was my boyfriend, but we got into an argument, and he backed out at the last minute. So when my mom mentioned it, I said, ‘Hey, why not!'”

There was even a sweet promposal! “I will take you to prom, I can do it, I’m a big boy!” Bentley said when his family told him about Haleigh’s boyfriend canceling on her. If he’s not the perfect prom date, we don’t know who is!

Bentley surprised not only Haleigh but also all of her classmates by attending the dance. “I thought it was very sweet, but I honestly didn’t take him or my family seriously,” Haleigh said of Bentley’s offer. “I thought he was going to be afraid to walk in front of everybody!”

So did the pair enjoy the prom? Haleigh said, “Everyone thought he was the cutest prom date ever, the way he stole the show. He was very brave!”
