Drake’s two-year-old son, Adonis, made his first appearance on Instagram as the Canadian rapper shared photos earlier today of the toddler while in coronavirus isolation.
Drake, who has so far kept his son away from public attention, posted a series of photos of himself with Adonis and baby mama Sophie Brussaux.
The first image shows Drake holding Adonis in his arms. Both are dressed in matching black vests, and Adonis looks cute under a mass of curly blond hair.
The second photo shows Drake’s parents, Dennis and Sandi Graham. His mom, Sandi, has a bright smile on her face, while his dad, Dennis, leans lovingly toward Sandi, also with a smile on his face.
A third image shows Drake, 33, posing with Adonis in his arms. Sophie Brussaux, 30, stands next to him, smiling brightly for the camera
There are other snaps of Adonis in the collection of family photos. One photo shows the toddler drinking from a cup. He poses beside his teddy bear in his toy car in another.
Drake reflects about his family from coronavirus lockdown
Drake’s message that accompanies the photos suggested he was thinking about his family in coronavirus isolation. The reflective tone of the lengthy message appears to have been inspired by the current global health crisis.
In the message, the Hotline Bling rapper talks about the need to connect to our inner light and the power within to make it happen.
But to make it happen, we need to connect to the people and things that bring us joy. He also reflects on how connecting with loved ones makes us overcome fear.
“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.”
He also writes:
“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.”

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. 🤍
