A Morehouse professor has gone viral for an act of kindness for a young father in his classroom.

In a photo that has since gone worldwide, Professor Nathan Alexander is seen teaching in class - likely like he would any other day. There's only one thing that's different. He's seen wearing a baby holster with a baby in it.

The post from Twitter User @Original_Vaughn explains the story behind the photo in his post.

"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!” #HBCU #morehouse #Respect"

That post has since exploded and gotten the attention of many across the U.S. and beyond with over 48,000 retweets and more than 200,000 likes since it first appeared on March 1.

On Facebook, the same poster goes into more detail about what he saw that day.

"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," Nick Vaughn said.

Morehouse College has since confirmed the story.
