(FOX NEWS) A Kentucky college professor saved the day for one of his students, doing some last-minute babysitting so that his student could take her final exam.

When Monica Romero's babysitter canceled at the last minute, she decided to bring her young son and daughter to the University of Louisville classroom, rather than miss the exam. Romero told BuzzFeed she still thought she would need a "miracle" for them to behave and allow her to finish. 

That's when her military history professor, Dr. Daniel Krebs, stepped in, playing with the two kids while Monica took the test. 

Romero’s friend Victoria Henry praised the professor for his compassionate gesture on Facebook, sharing the moment above. She said in her Facebook post,  "Witnessed one of the most caring gestures of my college career tonight. As a friend of mine was preparing to take our final exam for military history, her babysitter canceled on her. I suggested she just bring them and have them play on their tablet in the hall rather than skipping the exam. After just a few minutes of the kids playing loudly, the professor went to the hall and simply started to play with them to keep them occupied while their mom took the final. Such a kind and caring act committed when the reaction could have been the complete opposite. My heart is warm tonight. Tis the season."
