It looks like Drake is full of surprises.
After hiding the world from his son or hiding his son from the world, rapper Aubrey “Drake” Graham revealed pictures of his adorable 2-year-old son Adonis on Monday, March 30. He took to his Instagram and wrote an emotional yet lengthy message about missing his loved ones as the current pandemic lockdown continues.
In a series of snaps of himself and toddler son Adonis, the 33-year-old Canadian rapper wrote, “What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright.”
The Canadian artist continued on with his philosophical message and told his fans “break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light.” He added, “We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality.”
Drake’s post concluded with the following paragraph of him saying, “I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on.”
The images on the musician’s social media showed him and the curly blond hair child posing in front of a black background, both dressed in black tees. Another showed Drake embracing his son in his arms as they stood by the child’s mother, former porn star Sophie Brussaux.
His post sent social media users into a frenzy online.
“Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”
“What a beautiful little guy you have, and the message we all needed 💙 He’s a cute lil baby 😍”
“🗣MAURY! we need a paternity test ASAP 🤷🏽♀️. This baby got blue eyes and blond hair. That ain’t drake”
“Definitely can see Drake’s eye shape in that little boy… he looks a lot like him but he looks nothing like mom. Genetics 🧬 always surprise you. … God Bless them and staying healthy & happy!”
“He’s beautiful and looks just like Drake’s mom! #GrandmasTwin❤️”
“Incredible brother! Blessings to you and the fam ❤️🙏 Adonis is a stunning child”
Brussaux announced the birth of baby Adonis in October 2017, although Drake kept it hidden from the public. It wasn’t until his beef with rapper Pusha T, who accused the father of one of “hiding a child” on diss track “The Story of Adidon,” that Drake confirmed he was a father on his song “Emotionless.”
Drake didn’t reveal his son’s identity to the world, as he was uncertain at some point about the child’s paternity.
“I actually did a DNA test for my son and they came back to us and they said that that the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be a 100 percent sure that was my son or not,” he told Elliot Wilson and B. Dot Miller during an interview. “So, I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn’t. And if you see my son, you understand why. No, if you see my boy, you understand. He’s just a stunning child with the brightest blue eyes.”
