On Sunday, June 21st, the 33-year-old rapper and music super star Drake, shared an adorable photo of his 2-year-old child, Adonis, to Instagram, wishing fellow dads around the world a “Happy Father’s Day.”
“Happy Fathers Day to all the real g’z handling business 🌍,” Drake wrote alongside the snap, which showed his son cuddled up in bed wearing colorful star pajamas.
This is the first Father’s Day for which Drake has shared a photo of his son to Instagram. The musician previously only posted glimpses into his life as a dad — sharing photos of his son’s artwork, Father’s Day gifts and birthday party decorations — but never any photos of Adonis, whom he shares with Sophie Brussaux.
After sharing the photos of his son, the “Toosie Slide” artist opened up to pal Lil Wayne on an episode of Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne on Apple Music, and discussed why he suddenly wanted to post photos of Adonis on social media, adding that it was not a move he had “talked to anybody about or anything I planned.”
“It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world,” the rapper said of his Instagram posts. “I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do.”
