Good morning to proud dad Drake. On Wednesday, the rapper took to Instagram to post a photo of his two-year-old son Adonis before his first day of school.

In the photo, Adonis is standing outside near an SUV, wearing an all-black outfit, and looking at the camera like he knows this is about to be broadcast to Drake's 72 million followers. Drake also tagged Adonis' mom, Sophie Brussaux, making it a bit unclear who actually took the photo.

Drake first revealed to the world that he had a son back in June 2018, though he didn't share a photo of him until March 2020. At the time, people were just beginning the long months of quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Drake posted a gallery of photos on Instagram, writing, "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."

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. 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. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW...It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. 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. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

Then this June, for Father's Day, he posted another shot of Adonis and wrote, "Happy Fathers Day to all the real g'z handling business 🌍"

Though Drake keeps his life as a dad fairly private, he spoke about Adonis on his 2018 double album Scorpion. In his song "Emotionless," Drake says:

"I wasn’t hidin' my kid from the world / I was hidin' the world from my kid/ From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate / Until you starin' at your seed, you can never relate / Breakin’ news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs / The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call / They always ask, 'Why let the story run if it's false?' You know a wise man once said nothin' at all."

Then on the song "March 14," Drake says:

"Now it’s rough times, I'm out here on front lines / Just tryin' to make sure that I see him sometimes / It’s breakin' my spirit / Single father, I hate when I hear it / I used to challenge my parents on every album / Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent / Always promised the family unit / I wanted it to be different because I've been through it."
