A professor in Atlanta is getting major props online for holding a baby during a lecture so the baby's father could take notes in class.

Professor Nathan Alexander with Morehouse College acted quickly after a student entered his class with the baby.

"As one of my peers walked into the classroom with his child in arms he quickly explained to my professor that he couldn’t find a babysitter and had nobody else that could watch her," Nick Vaughn, a classmate posted on Facebook.

According to Vaughn, Alexandersaid: "No problem, in fact I will even hold her so you can take better notes in class."

"And he did, in fact 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," Vaughn said on Facebook.

David Thomas, the president of Morehouse College celebrated Alexander's good deed on Twitter.

"This is about #love and #commitment. Loving our students and being committed to removing any barrier to their pursuit of excellence," Thomas posted on Twitter.
