Drake Speaks Publicly About His 1-Year-Old Son for First Time

Drake spoke publicly for the first time about his one-year-old son Adonis with former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux.

“[He has] crazy blue eyes — baby blue eyes,” Drake told LeBron on HBO’s The Shop.“He’s already in the pool shooting the basketball.”

“I’m just excited,” Drake said about being a first time dad, adding he’s using “all of the things I’ve learned from and through my father and the incredible things I’ve learned through my mother about patience, about unconditional love.”

If you don’t know, Drake‘s baby was first mentioned on Pusha T‘s diss track, and he later confirmed the news.

“I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who, we’ve had our moments,” Drake said of Sophie. “I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don’t have any desire for him to not love his mother. I don’t ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible. Now, I’m just really excited to be a great father.”

“No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy,” he added.

Drake also added, “I think I was more scared to tell my mom because my mom has had real relationships with women in my life over the course of my years that I’m sure she would expect or be elated if I were to have gotten one of those women pregnant. It was tough for me to tell her that it was somebody that she never met.”
