One college professor is not only an amazing teacher, he also totally wins for best babysitter ever after carrying his student’s daughter.

Morehouse College math professor Nathan Alexander won the internet’s hearts when an image of him babywearing in one of his classes went viral. It wasn’t his own baby he was wearing, however—it was his student’s baby. As another student, Nick Vaughn, explained in his now-viral Twitter post, Alexander lended a helping hand to a student who was forced to come to class with his baby daughter.

The post quickly received thousands of likes and retweets and Alexander thanked Vaughn for his praise in his own Twitter post. Vaughn then gave more details about the story in a subsequent Facebook post.

“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,” Vaughn wrote in his post. Several of Alexander’s students commented about their own positive experiences with their professor. Clearly Alexander is a special teacher who has had impressive impact on all of his classes.
