The rapper and French artist Sophie Brussaux are the proud parents of 5-year-old son Adonis Graham, and the Grammy nominee has proudly declared himself “co-parent of the year” on his 2021 album Certified Lover Boy.
In 2018, Drake released the double album Scorpion, in which he confirmed his paternity by rapping, “The kid is mine” and “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world / I was hidin’ the world from my kid.”
This came after he had initially denied Brussaux’s allegations that she was pregnant with his child.
In 2018, Drake addressed the public on HBO’s The Shop about his involvement with Brussaux and the circumstances surrounding the birth of his son Adonis. He said, “We’ve gotten ourselves into a pickle, and we’re both to blame.”
“I can’t wait to start a family and raise wonderful children,” he said. After Adonis’s October 11, 2017 birth, both Drake and Brussaux waited until March 2020 to release any images of their newborn son.
“I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son,” Drake said to Lil Wayne on their Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne Apple Music show.
“I don’t want to feel like I got to make people live under this blanket just because of a life decision I chose to be a ‘star’… Simply put, he explained, “I needed to get away from it.
