Why does my mama cat let my male cat care for her kittens?

I have a 15-year-old male cat who is a big sweetheart. We got a kitten which was too young to leave her mom so my male cat would nurse her and care for her until she was old enough.

I was shocked. They have been best friends since. About a month ago she had kittens (he's not the father, he's fixed). Since day one, she's had him by her side with the kittens, cuddling and cleaning them.
