We can all agree that Derek is a natural when it comes to fatherhood, but even the best dads (and most brilliant neurosurgeons) need a little help now and then. In this memorable scene featuring Derek and Zola, Bailey has some very specific parenting advice for Dr. Shepherd.

Derek is so wonderful with Zola that we, of course, were thrilled to find out Zola was going to be a big sister. Almost as thrilled as Derek. Check out the video above to see Meredith's sweet way of telling him the news that soon-to-be Baby Bailey is on the way!
