The Inspiring Reason Why A Professor Lectured While Holding A Baby

Grab your tissues for this heart-warming story! A Morehouse College professor held a baby during his entire math lecture, and the reason is just so touching.

The math professor -- Nathan Alexander -- at the historically black college in Atlanta told one of his students that he could bring his daughter to class if he needed to. The student -- a man named Wayne Hayer -- apparently found himself that situation after being left with no option but to bring his daughter to class on Friday. This heart-warming story was shared on Facebook and first reported by The Washington Post.

Hayer, a kinesiology student, told The Washington Post that he felt nervous about bringing his daughter with him, especially at an all-male college. The father also mentioned that he felt he heard more of women bringing their children to class with them.

Hayer explained that when he got to class with his baby girl, Assata, strapped to his chest, the professor was quick to go the second mile.

The professor said: “No problem, in fact I will even hold her so you can take better notes in class,” Hayer’s classmate, Nick Vaughn, wrote in a Facebook post -- see below:


According to the Facebook post, the math lecturer held Assata for the entire lecture and apparently he even stayed after and answered students’ questions about the lecture, with the 5-month-old still strapped to his chest.

The post went viral; I mean how can something this heartwarming not get the attention of others?

“It was this encounter that truly showed me the power and impact HBCU’s can have for the black community, for this professor to understand that life happens and sometimes there are just no ways around it,” Vaughn wrote on Facebook.
