"I Just Wanted To Free Myself"

Drake decided to share pictures of his son, Adonis Graham, with the public for the first time back in March. The celebrity father is now ready to reveal why he decided to upload the candids.


“It was great for me,” Drake told Lil Wayne of Young Money Radio on Friday (May 1). “It was great to just share that with the world,” the Canadian recording artist added.

Drake welcomed his son in October 2017. The world did not learn of little Adonis, however, until months after his birth when rival rapper Pusha-T blasted Drake for allegedly abandoning his son. Drake cleared up the confusion in one of his songs by telling fans that he in no way abandoned his baby boy.

In fact, Adonis and his mom, Sophie Brussaux, have received financial support from Drake since conception. The Canadian rapper told the public that he was shielding his son from a society that sometimes tends to be critical without getting the full story.

Regardless of the bumpy road in the beginning, Drake and his son’s mother appear to be on a path to co-parenting harmoniously with one another.

“I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son,” Drake told Lil Wayne during his interview. “I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket … I just wanted to free myself of that.”

Adonis Graham is Drake’s only child. Stay tuned for more celebrity father news!
