Drake shares photos of his son, Adonis, for the first time: ‘My beautiful family’
Drake has shared the first-ever photos of his 2-year-old son, along with a heartwarming message about family.
The 33-year-old, who revealed he was a father following a 2018 feud with rapper Pusha T, posted the images to his Instagram account early in the morning of March 30.
Multiple photos in the post feature Drake’s son, named Adonis, playing, posing for the camera and interacting with his parents. The two-year-old’s mother, Sophie Brussaux, is a 30-year-old model, artist and former adult film star.
Drake’s post, which implied that he was currently separated from Adonis due to social distancing, included a long, heartfelt message about the importance of family and staying positive during a difficult time.
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. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. 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. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. 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. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. 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. 🤍

“What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light,” Drake wrote to his fans. “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.”
Drake went on to emphasize the importance of courage during this time, telling his fans that they are “powerful manifestors” capable of staying strong. He concluded his post by explaining how much he missed his family, including Adonis — and his parents, Dennis and Sandi Graham, who were also featured in the slideshow.
“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,” Drake wrote. “Until then please keep your lights on.”
Public knowledge that Drake was a father began when he and Pusha T’s public feud spilled over into a series of diss tracks. In the most popular of those, called “Story of Adidon,” Pusha T rapped and accused Drake of “hiding” his child from the world.
“We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts. You are hiding a child, let that boy come home,” Pusha T said in the song.
That revelation sparked a response from Drake on the song “Emotionless,” in which he explained that he wasn’t “hiding” Adonis, but rather trying to protect him from the scrutiny that comes with being a celebrity’s child.
“I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world,” Drake rapped on the song. “I was hidin’ the world from my kid From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”
