Drake is one proud papa!
The “What’s Next” rapper gave us a little preview of what’s next for his 3-year-old son, Adonis… and it might be a lot of time spent in the paint! Drake shared an adorable video of the little guy draining buckets on Sunday, March 4. Adonis skillfully shot the multicolored basketball through the chic hoop inside his room. Drake, a known basketball fanatic and global ambassador to the Toronto Raptors seemed extremely pleased that his son likes the game… so much so that he shared the video with his 77.7 million followers. That means a lot for a guy who “was hiding the world from my kid.”
Generally, when we talk about wet celebrity kids, we aren’t talking about a jump shot, but in this case, we are! Adonis has a great arch on his shot and extends his arm for the follow-through. Drake expressed his pleasure with the jumper by including three wet emojis… once again, referring to the saucy shot.
The confident young man told his mama that he made two in a row before he proceeded to drain a third, and he wasn’t even wearing shoes!
The rapper shares Adonis with artist Sophie Brussaux, 31. Of course, fans remember Drake did his best to keep Adonis a secret until Pusha T rapped about it in the diss track, “The Story of Adidon.” He later admitted to having a son in 2018 on his album “Scorpion.”
Since then, the “Wants and Needs” artist has opened up about his son and shared pictures on social media, although he keeps their relationship pretty private. In November 2020, he posted an adorable picture of himself sleeping on his son’s shoulder. Earlier that year, he posted a pic of Adonis celebrating the first day of school. “First Day Of School…The World Is Yours kid ?,” he wrote at the time.
On Adonis’ 3rd birthday, his mama gushed about how proud she was of him and thanked Drake for helping her create such a fine young boy. “3 years ago, I was finally meeting you for the first time, after a long 24-hr labour,” she wrote on social media in October. “I’m so proud of the little man you’re becoming, I love you more than life. The world is YOURS! We did that @champagnepapi ?.”
