Hitting the books! Drake documented his 2-year-old son Adonis’ major milestone on Wednesday, September 9.
“First Day Of School,” the rapper, 33, captioned an Instagram photo of the toddler. “The World Is Yours kid.”
In the social media upload, Adonis posed in front of a black SUV while wearing a hoodie, matching sweats and sneakers.
“Mon bébé,” the new student’s mom, Sophie Brussaux, commented on the photo.
Pusha T revealed in May 2018 that Drake was a father in “The Story of Adidon,” and the Grammy winner confirmed the news the following month in “March 14.”
“Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That s—t is in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine,” the Degrassi alum rapped in June 2018. “[My mom], Sandi [Graham], used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time / S—t, we only met two times, two times.”
The actor explained in December 2019 that he waited to address Adonis’ paternity because he was in a “weird pending situation” waiting for a DNA test.
While Drake shared artwork from his son via Instagram, he didn’t show the little one’s face until March.
“What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light,” he captioned an Instagram slideshow featuring Adonis and Brussaux, 31, amid the coronavirus pandemic. “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.”
He went on to tell his followers to “keep [their] lights on,” adding, “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.”
Fatherhood has changed the Canadian star for the better, his dad, Dennis Graham, exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2019.
“This is new,” the Tennessee native, 65, shared at the time. “This is brand new. The baby is only 17 months. He doesn’t have a lot of time, but the baby loves him. I’ve seen them interact together, and it’s beautiful. … He’s got love in his heart, so that’s all you need with a baby.”
