Professor Holds Student's Baby During Class Because He Can't Get A Sitter
Heartwarming images of a uni professor holding his student's baby during class have gone viral for all the right reasons.
The American teacher stepped in to help out his pupil who had been unable to find a babysitter so had brought the little girl to class with him.
Photos of Nathan Alexander, who teaches at the Morehouse College, comforting the baby in a carrier strapped to him have been shared on social media by another of his pupils.
Nathan wanted to ensure that his student could take 'good notes'.

"Student came to class today with his child due to no babysitter or anybody to watch her while he was in class. My professor NATHAN ALEXANDER said 'I'll hold her so you can take good notes'," said university student Nick Vaughn who posted the images on Twitter.
The tweet has been liked more than 300,000 times and retweeted 75,000 times (at the time of writing).
Teacher Nathan replied, writing: "Thanks @Original_Vaughn! I appreciate the love!"
His pupil then added: "Not only did he teach the entire lecture with the child in his arms but also stayed after class helping those with questions about today's lecture with the child still in his arms as seen in the pictures."
Fellow Morehouse College students were quick to heap on the praise for the teacher for past acts of kindness too.
One wrote: "MY FAVORITE TEACHER! He saved my grade in college algebra my first semester at Morehouse. I was in another section with arguably the WORST teacher in the school, ready to drop out, but he saw I was on the edge and personally tutored me. Went from a D to an A by senester's end."
"@professornaite is one of my favorite professors!! Genuinely cares for the students and sacrifices his personal time always to help in any way possible. nothing but respect (Ps. Sorry i wasnt in class today lol)," another echoed.
What a hero.
