Tennessee Court of Appeals Judge Richard Dinkins is going viral after a video showed him swearing in a new lawyer last week while holding her baby.

In footage making the rounds online, Dinkins could be seen lightly bouncing the baby on his hip while he administered the oath to Juliana Lamar, the mother of the 1-year-old child who recently graduated from Belmont University College of Law, according to BuzzFeed News.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lamar told the publication that moments before she was set to be sworn in, Dinkins said he wanted her son, Beckham, to “take part in the moment.”

“And I am so glad he did because to have my son take part in one of the greatest moments of my life was truly a blessing,” she said.
