For the first time since he was born two years ago, Canadian rapper Drake posted pictures of son Adonis to his Instagram profile. While he’s mostly been lowkey about Adonis, he proudly showed off just how cute his son is in a series of recent pictures. Pictures Drake shared also included Adonis’ mother, French model Sophie Brussaux.
Brussaux also took the opportunity to share pictures of Adonis on her own profile. She shared nine pictures of her toddler, even throwing in a couple throwbacks of Adonis. In one picture, Brussaux jokingly photoshopped gold locks over her own brown hair and Drake’s black hair after fans were dazed over Adonis’ curly, golden locks!
Drake’s photographs of Adonis are among many in the single post on Instagram, where the artist urges his followers to “connect to [their] inner lights” and remain hopeful during the COVID-19 pandemic. He reminds everyone to focus on the positives during these troubling times, and to turn towards healing and higher consciousness. In doing so, he also proclaims, “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.“
Most of all, with all eyes on Adonis, Drake reminds us all that while he may be our “Champagne Papi”, he’s Adonis’ real papi and he’s finally showing it off to the world!
