In the video, we can see Judge Richard Dinkins holding the toddler in his right arm as Julian swears in.
Speaking to Buzzfeed News, Julian said, "On the day of my swearing-in, right before we began, Judge [Dinkins] said he wanted 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."
Further speaking to the media house, Julian said that it was not easy to have a baby while in college and credited her husband, Javon, for helping her with Beckham. She also thanked Judge Dunkins for inspiring her. "Judge Dinkins has also been a guiding light during my legal career,” she added.
