Y'all. Judge Dinkins of the Tennessee Court of Appeals swore in my law school colleague with her baby on his hip, and I've honestly never loved him more. pic.twitter.com/kn0L5DakHO

State Court of Appeals Judge Richard Dinkins is seen bouncing the kid in one arm while he reads the oath of admission to Juliana Lamar.
Opening up about how did this happen, Lamar told Fox 17 Nashville that Judge Dinkins saw her son, Beckham, in the crowd and expressed that he should also be a part of her mom`s swearing-in, cited Fox News.
Moreover, Dinkins has been a mentor to the new attorney Lamar, who clerked for him during law school at Belmont University College of Law.
She expressed that being a mom together with law school was “nerve-racking” and added, “I didn`t know anything about babies. I was worried about law school and being a new mom.”
Needless to say, having her son be a part of the event was “the pinnacle of everything because it was all worth it,” she said.
Lamar also documented the ceremony and penned her feelings on Instagram where she wrote, “This feeling is indescribable. To say you`re going to do something then do it is such an amazing feat.”
A lot of people on social media eulogised the judge`s humane gesture and many women calling Lamar a hero!
“Great example of true gender respect in the work place [sic]. This woman is given space to live her full life,” one person tweeted.
“She can and will practice law while being a parent, and that judge is modeling what it means to be a professional human rather then [sic] a professional and a human. Bravo to all!”
Another Twitter user wrote, “There should be a Presidential Good Humanity Award for this kind of thing. For mom too, what a way to persevere.”
“What a day to be sworn in and have your little one be there too!!” another person tweeted. “What a memory to show her baby when the baby gets older!!”
