Sharing snaps of two-year-old son Adonis online has been “freeing” for proud dad Drake.

The 33-year-old entertainer joined Lil Wayne on his new podcast Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne on Apple Music, where he talked about posting photos of the tot on social media.

While the God’s Plan star had refrained from sharing snaps publicly, he said it was not a move he had “talked to anybody about or anything I planned”.


“It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world,” the Toosie Slide star reflected. “I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do.”

Back at the end of March, Drake shared several photos of Adonis, along with himself and his son’s mum, Sophie Brussaux.

“I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son,” Drake gushed. “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.”

The comments come after the hitmaker dropped a new mixtape featuring Future and Young Thug this week, as well as confirming he will release a new album later this summer.
