​Drake Shares Father’s Day Photo Of Son Adonis As Shout Out To Dads ‘Handling Business’

Drake has shared a rare photo of his son Adonis, marking Father's Day by paying tribute to all the dads out there 'handling business'.

In the caption for the photo, which showed two-year-old Adonis cuddled up with a duvet, the rapper wrote: "Happy Fathers Day to all the real g'z handling business."

He also tagged his father, Dennis Graham, in the picture, and celebrated other inspirational men in his life over on his Stories.

Drake, 33, only publicly acknowledged his son a couple of months ago, having shared the first photos of Adonis on Instagram.

Adonis' existence was kept a secret until fellow rapper Pusha T released a diss track outing him for being a father, leading to Drake acknowledging his son on 2018 album Scorpion - rapping on one track called 'March 14': "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid."

It turned out that, for some time, he had been unconvinced that Adonis - whose mother is Sophie Brussaux - was his.

In a Rap Radar interview from December last year, Drake admitted he'd had a DNA test carried out to make sure the child was his.

He said: "To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn't be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not.

"So, I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn't want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn't."

Referring to his son's blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin, he added: "If you see my son you understand why."

Drake continued: "He's a stunning child you know, with the brightest blue eyes and at the time I was like 'I don't know'.

"It actually wasn't until a week before the album came out that I got confirmation that that was definitely my son.

"It took me two more solid [DNA] tests with two different companies."

Brussaux has also spoken out following Drake's emotional Instagram post, joking that the reason behind Adonis' appearance is that she and her ex are secretly natural blondes.
