If you can remember anything about your own birthday parties as a kid, they probably looked nothing like this! In an unusual glimpse into his private life, Canadian icon and rapper Drake has shared a special picture of his son’s second birthday party on Instagram, and it looks just as bougie as you would imagine.
Drake, who is notoriously private when it comes to his family-life, didn’t even tell his fans that he had a son until just last year. Now, it seems he is becoming more comfortable sharing his son with the world, as he took to social media on Friday to recognize the toddler’s big day.
Sharing a bougie AF photo with his 60.9 million Instagram followers, the rapper wrote, “Happy Birthday King.” The picture showed a rare insight into the rapper’s home, which had been decked out with balloons that said, “Adonis.” There was also a pretty impressive Cookie Monster flower arrangement, and some big, golden star balloons.
Shortly after Drake posted the picture, several of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities responded to send birthday wishes to the famous 2-year-old.
Responding to Drake’s post, DJ Khaled commented, “Happy bday young [king].”
American rapper Carnage added, “‘HAPPPPPPY BIRTHDAY NEPHEW,’ while Skepta wrote, “Long Live.”
Ty Dolla Sign, Bun B and La La Anthony also posted birthday wishes to young Adonis, while thousands of Drake’s fans also took to Instagram to share their love with the 2-year-old.
Drake’s fans first learned that he had a child with Sophie Brussaux in May 2018, when a diss-track from rapper Pusha T accused Drake of fathering a secret child.
In response, the Toronto rapper confirmed the rumours on several tracks from his Scorpion album, saying, “She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine.”
Since then, Drake has chosen to keep his son out of the spotlight as much as possible, and has never actually shared a photo of Adonis with this fans. That said, he has offered a few small glimpses into their life together, sharing a photo of his son’s artwork on Father’s Day.
Explaining his decision to keep his interactions with his son private, Drake explains in Emotionless, “‘I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world. I was hiding the world from my kid.”
