East TN children fight over baby Jesus during Nativity pageant

On Sunday, the First Baptist Church of White Pine in Tennessee held a Nativity pageant featuring preschoolers as Mary, Joseph, an angel and a few sheep.

But during the song, it's clear Teegan, playing the role of "sheep", has plans to become the star of the show.

While the children's choir sang "Away In A Manger" the scene began to unravel.

As the crowd laughed, Teegan grabbed baby Jesus again and swiftly dodged Mary when she tried to take the doll back.

The other parents in the audience looked on at a loss, unsure of whether to intervene or let the added drama play out.

"Teegan loves babies and her love for baby Jesus was a lot stronger than she could handle", she joked.

However, the child playing Mary was not pleased.

"(We have) a sheep stealing the Baby Jesus and Mary with the WWE Smackdown", Benson said with a laugh.

"These kids both love our church, love being here and both have a passion for Jesus, and so I think the message that we want to get across is He is the reason for Christmas", Benson told KHOU.

So far, the video has been viewed over 4.9 million times on Facebook. LOVE these kiddos and my church family! "I'm really glad that a video like this can bring some light into the season", she said.

Tana added there may be a new baby doll for Teegan in the near future.
