An Alabama mom taking care of her four-month-old while her husband was at work got an unexpected visit from a sheriff's deputy — and for all the right reasons.

Rachael Brindley was out mowing the lawn with the infant strapped in a front-facing baby carrier when a Madison County deputy stopped to help, WAFF-TV reported.

Brindley said her husband, Ryan Brindley, had been working a lot and wasn't able to be home much, so she wanted to help him out by mowing the lawn.

"He has been working hard on a work project and hasn't had time to cut it," Rachael Brindley said. "It was a nice day out, and so I thought I'd help my husband out and cut it myself."

But the deputy insisted on finishing the job himself. Brindley took photos of the generous act and posted them to Facebook. It didn't take long for the post to go viral.

Y'all I thought I was about to get in trouble or something for baby wearing while mowing but this sweet sheriff stopped and insisted on mowing my yard for me!!

The Madison County Sheriff's Office later responded to the deputy's action on its Facebook page.
