Texas A&M professor, student who brought baby to class make ‘Ellen’ appearance 

A small act of kindness really can get you somewhere. If somewhere is on “The Ellen Show.”

Texas A&M student Ashton Robinson emailed her professor Dr. Henry Musoma ahead of class to let him know that she wouldn’t be able to make it because she didn’t have a baby sitter for her 10-month-old son. 

Musoma proposed a simple solution: bring him.

Robinson posted a video of Musoma holding her son, while lecturing, to Facebook earlier this month. The post has since been shared some 12,000 times and garnered nearly 50,000 likes.
