Pictures of an Atlanta professor carrying a student's baby during a lecture are going viral.


Wayne Hayer, a student at Morehouse College, couldn't find a last-minute babysitter for his 5-month-old daughter Friday so he brought her to class.

That's when his professor, Nathan Alexander, offered to carry the girl for the entire lecture so Wayne could take notes.

Alexander said he's actually carried kids for students before and that it's his aim to provide opportunities for students and to build a community.

The professor also said the baby was well behaved and even started to fall asleep during his lecture.

The Twitter post has more than 300,000 likes as of Monday afternoon.
