Drake and his family seemed to have enjoyed Father's Day, as the American rap icon posted a photo on his Instagram with his father, Dennis Graham, and his son, Adonis, on June 17, 2024.

"Three generations. Happy Fathers Day to the ones guiding their daughters and sons," Drizzy captioned.

In the Instagram post, the 37-year-old rapper was sporting a brown camouflage vest with grey baggy pants, while his son and father were both seen in cowboy outfits. In other photos, the three were seen enjoying a ride on a farm in a Brabus automobile, specially built for Drizzy.

Adonis is the only son of Drake and his former lover, Sophie Brussaux. The God's Plan rapper and Sophie had a brief encounter in 2017, shortly after Drizzy's fallout with Jennifer Lopez.

Drizzy posted an adorable photo on Instagram to celebrate Father's Day, featuring himself with his father, Dennis Graham, and his son, Adonis. Drake is the son of Sandi and Dennis Graham. Dennis Graham was a Canadian school teacher and musician, while Drake spent his childhood primarily with his mother, Sandi.

Adonis' mother, Sophie Brussaux, also took to Instagram to join in the Father's Day celebrations. In an Instagram story, she posted a picture of her ex-partner Drizzy and Adonis sharing a father-son bonding moment.

Drake and Sophie were briefly together after his 2017 breakup with Jennifer Lopez. Their connection became prominent when Brussaux filed a lawsuit, claiming she was three-and-a-half months pregnant with Drizzy's child. Sophie Brussaux gave birth to Adonis in October 2017.

Despite their topsy-turvy dynamic, the rapper and his ex-partner have figured out a way to co-parent Adonis amicably. In an October 2018 interview with LeBron James on The Shop, Drizzy discussed the pros and cons of being a single father and explained that he wanted Adonis to be close to his mother.

"I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who, we’ve had our moments. 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," Drizzy said.

He also explained that he wanted to be a 'great father' but had no intentions of making the world misunderstand Adonis' mother. He claimed to have 'unconditional love' for Sophia Brussaux.

"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," he added.

He concluded by saying:

"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."

After Adonis' birth in 2017, Pusha T's diss track, The Story of Adidon, brought Drake's child to the public eye. Drizzy himself confirmed Adonis' birth in his album Scorpion, which came out a month later.

Who is Sophia Brussaux? Adonis' parenthood was confirmed by a DNA test in 2018

Sophia Brussaux is the mother of Drizzy's only child, Adonis. The 34-year-old started her career as an adult film star but has since transitioned into an artist. One of her famous art pieces was the portrait of Pope Francis, which she gifted to him in November 2019.

She captioned her Instagram post:

"Such an honor to meet Pope Francis and gift him the portrait I painted for him in honor of his concert with and for the poor on Nov 9 2019. Thank you @etihadmodernart for giving me this amazing opportunity."

Brussaux claimed that she was pregnant with Drake's child in May 2017. Although Drizzy initially denied the allegations, he publicly accepted Aonis as his son in June 2018 after DNA test results confirmed the same in March 2018.

In his track March 14, the rapper described the situation and claimed Adonis as his son.
