For Father's Day, Drake shared a photo of his son, Adonis Graham, on his Instagram account.
It's not often that the rapper publicly shares moments with his two-year-old; he keeps his life as a parent fairly private. But today, he shared an image of his curly-headed son, who looks, in the photo, like he just woke up from a nap (making him look even cuter).
'Happy Fathers Day to all the real g'z handling business 🌍,' he wrote.
In numerous tracks on his 2018 double album Scorpion, Drake confirmed that he had fathered a child with former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux. For example, here were the telling lyrics on 'Emotionless':
'I wasn’t hidin' my kid from the world/I was hidin' the world from my kid/From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/Until you starin' at your seed, you can never relate...Breakin’ news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call/They always ask, 'Why let the story run if it's false?' You know a wise man once said nothin' at all.'
On 'Billie Jean' he wrote:
'She's not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ S—, we only met two times, two times,' he said, referring to his mother, Sandi Graham.
'Now it’s rough times, I'm out here on front lines/Just tryin' to make sure that I see him sometimes/It’s breakin' my spirit/Single father, I hate when I hear it/I used to challenge my parents on every album/Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent/ Always promised the family unit/I wanted it to be different because I've been through it.'
In March, Drake shared photos of Adonis on his Instagram for the first time.
He shared some advice for fans as they, like the rest of the world, grappled with a global pandemic.
'Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that,' he wrote, in part. 'Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW...It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust.'
