A video of a judge bouncing a baby in his arms, while swearing-in the toddler’s mother as an attorney, is going viral on social media.

Judge Dinkins of the Tennessee Court of Appeals was seen carrying the boy, named Beckham, in one arm while reading the oath of admission to Juliana Lamar, who was being sworn in as an attorney to the Tennessee Bar.

The incident went viral after one of Lamar’s law school colleagues, Sarah Martin, filmed and shared it online.

Watch the video here:

Lamar told Fox 17 Nashville that Judge Dinkins saw her one-year-old son in the crowd and wanted him to be a part of the ceremony. He took on the responsibility of carrying the child. Dinkins had been a mentor to the young lawyer, who was worked as a clerk for him while studying law at the Belmont University College of Law.

Lamar gave birth to Beckham last year, while she was a third-year student, and had returned to class just over a week after giving birth.

“She was back at school within a week of an emergency c-section before she was even allowed to drive or climb stairs,” Martin wrote on Twitter.

Lamar said none of this would have been possible without the support of her mentor, family and her baby. Thanking them, she shared a few photos and wrote a post on Instagram.

“Thank you to my Husband for being there during all the late nights, all the suits you’ve ironed 😉, coffee you’ve bought to keep me awake, and taking my laptop to force me to go to sleep”, she wrote about her spouse, Javon, on her Instagram page.

As the video of the judge went viral, people on Twitter remarked about how cute Beckham is, the judge’s ability to handle the child, and praised the young woman for achieving her objective.

Lamar is working on a two-year clerkship with the state trial court and when that is over, she will start looking for other jobs.

“I hope that this story gives other young women and young mothers the inspiration to know that you can do it, even if you’re faced with a crazy attendance policy or you’re just worried that you can’t do it,” she said. “If I can do it, literally anyone can do it,” Lamer told CNN.
