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. 🤍

Drake denied fathering his son Adonis for a while, during Sophie Brussaux’s pregnancy and (I think) after she gave birth. Finally, a paternity test was done when Adonis was just a baby, and even after that, Drake still said nothing about Adonis publicly. It took Pusha T spilling all the tea for Drake to publicly claim his child, although to be fair… Drake was already preparing to rollout the news about Adonis alongside an album drop. Seriously.

Anyway, all of that drama happened two years ago. Drake is self-isolating and he’s got time on his hands, I guess, because he decided to post his first social media photos of Adonis. This child! He really doesn’t look anything like Drake, right? Even though I thought all of the paternity test drama was shady when he learned of it, I had to admit that I wouldn’t have predicted that Drake’s son would have curly blonde hair and blue eyes. Drake’s fans are already pointing out that Adonis looks so much like Drake’s mom (Adonis’s grandmother) though:

Holy sh-t that’s accurate. It’s crazy how genes work sometimes! My dad always swore up and down that I looked like his mother too. Stuff skips generations all the time, from eye color to hair color to Drake fathering a child who looks like a mini-Justin Timberlake (circa N*Sync).

Bring me your Chet Haze jokes, please. I’m laughing my ass off at this.

    I actually think his facial features look like Drake but I agree it’s weird that he’s super light-skinned and blonde with blue eyes considering his mom’s coloring as well. Genes are weird!!!

    • DS9 says:

      That was my exact thought. I’m not surprised that Drake’s child is so fair. I’m biracial like he is too and my daughter could believably claim to be Rachel McAdams’s baby sister.

      I’m just a little surprised that Drake and Sophie together have a child not just this fair but with those big blue eyes. Usually you have at least one parent with blue eyes.

      • Ali says:

        There is a 6% chance that two people with brown eyes will have a blued eyed baby.

      • twinmom says:

        Both my grandparents on my mother’s side have brown eyes. They had three blue eyed children.

      • Risa says:

        Both my parents and sister have brown or black hair and light brown eyes. I have blonde hair and blue eyes.
        I have ALL the recessed genes in my family. Lol

    • Mel M says:

      They are! I feel like everything I learned in high school about recessive genes has not played out in real life.

      My husband and I both have dark hair and dark eyes but his are a green/brown dark hazel and mine are a lighter brown. We have brown eyed kids, and one with hazel and one with blue. His mom has blue eyes.

      My mother has brown eyes and my father has hazel and my sister with dark brown eyes is married to a man with blue eyes and both of her kids have blue eyes, the blonde and brunette. You would think her kids would have a better chance at brown eyes. Same with my SIL who has brown eyes and is married to a man with blue eyes, three kids with blue eyes. In my family and my husbands if there is a chance for blue eyes they show up way more often then brown.

      • Thea says:

        That’s cause genetics is a lot more complicated than the simple punnet squares from high school biology.

    • WhyDidIDeleteMahCookeez? says:

      My younger daughter is the first set of brown eyes in three generations on both sides. I had to do some quick research on eye color genetics because (even though I’m the mom and know for damn sure who her daddy is) I thought that was impossible. If I’m remembering correctly it’s something like 15 genes that determine eye color.

  2. Theo says:

    Adorable boy

  3. ABritGuest says:

    Ahh he looks like such a mix of Drake and Drake’s mum. Sweet boy

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    That baby is adorable AF.

  5. FHMom says:

    Beautiful child! I can’t see either parent in him. Ha

  6. Rae says:

    He’s a cutie.

    Absolutely disgusted by some people on twitter though. He’s a little kid: there is no excuse of being assholes about how a kid looks.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    Damn, look at that curly hair. If he’s like any other dude I’ve known, he’ll be straightening it by age fifteen lol.

  8. Pilar says:

    This kid actually has a biracial lineage and a black father no matter his coloring. He is no different to Harry and Meghans son in that resepect. Comparing him to Chet Hanks, a white man with no black lineage appropriating black culture, is kind of ignorant and not that funny IMO.

  9. anneliser says:

    He’s a crazy beautiful boy. I hope Drake is proud of him.

  10. Jess says:

    He’s adorable, and people in other comment sections are really showing how racist and/or uneducated they are. Genetics are fascinating to me, I wish I could have 100 babies just to see how they look!

  11. Other Renee says:

    Before I even read this article, my first thought was how much this little cutie looks like Drake’s mother.

    It’s sad that this world health crisis isn’t making some people nicer. Racist evil trolls stay racist evil trolls.

  12. Emmitt says:

    Drake is biracial and the child’s mother is with a white woman so the child’s coloring really shouldn’t be a surprise. The boy’s hair may darken with age. The only surprise is the blue eyes but if Drake has blue eye genes from his mom and the child’s mom has blue eye genes from her parents, you could have a blue eyed baby which is what happened here.

    I think the child looks just like Drake, except with blond hair and blue eyes.

  13. Sarah says:

    I think he looks a lot like Drake with different coloring. I don’t see much of Sophie though. Anyways, I really think Drake is a creep both bc of his fondness is younger woman and how he handled the whole paternity thing. It seemed like he tried to slut shame his son’s mother. It takes two to tango…

  14. Lily says:

    This is my 2cents opinion: if drake is 50% white/50%black, then his kid with a 100% white woman would be 75%white. So the kid would likely have more “white” features which is the case here. And i can see how drake would doubt that he was the father. This would have been a great case on the Maury Povich show btw.
    Anyway, that’s the way nature goes! We get 50 from dad, 50 from mom and we can only give that to our kids.

    • Leigh says:

      He’s likely more than 75% white, unless Drake’s dad’s heritage is 100% African (which is not very common for Black Americans). I’m surprised that people are so shocked by this cute kid’s appearance. I think he looks just like a lighter version of Drake.

  15. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Chet Hanks…🤦🏽‍♀️ The cultural blackface is…wow.

  16. Jane Doe says:

    Drake’s child looks JUST like him, some people are just too colourstruck to see the resemblance in facial features. Not cool.

    • ennie says:

      I agree, his eyes, his mom’s nose. his lips, this baby’s eyebrows are a dream, unlike Drake who has much fuller ones.
      I went and found pics of young drake, and he looks quite like him, but Drake was more smiley in the existing online pics.

    • Krissy says:

      I second that… He looks just like Drake! The nose, the lips.. He’s just fair with blonde hair & blue eyes but the features are the same! & he looks nothing like Justin Timberlake! Besides N’sync era curly blond hair! People are soooo ridiculous…

  17. Emily says:

    Oh wow, I did not expect their son to look like that lol. He’ll probably tan really easily? And I honestly forgot Drake was biracial and had no idea his mom was white and blonde with blue eyes. Had I not seen pictures of his mom, it would be hard for me to believe Sophie and Drake were the real biological parents just out and about since I don’t think he looks like either of them. Congrats to the two of them, Adonis is one beautiful child!

    It’s like when you see pictures of Obama with his white grandfather as a kid! Obama is the spitting image of him, just darker. And this is why genetics are so interesting.

  18. Laura says:

    My biological father had black hair and blue eyes. My mom has blond hair and blue eyes. My sister has black hair and blue eyes, my estranged brother has blond hair and blue eyes. I have red hair and green eyes. Who knew? (I’ve been told I look exactly like my maternal grandma when she was young)

  19. Charfromdarock says:

    Cute kid.

    But I’m SMDH at Chet Hanks.

  20. nicegirl says:

    Darling baby

  21. MellyMel says:

    That hair! So cute!!

  22. Lulu says:

    All I’m thinking is why are men are so easily forgiven for being misogynist twits? He triggered me during the pregnancy ordeal as I also had an ex that behaved horrendously during my pregnancy and know how isolating and dark a time that can be. Prenatal women need lots of emotional and physical support. Then as soon as the sight of their own blood activates their narcissism they (men) want the woman to get onboard with their family man image. Whatever.
    Beautiful child.

  23. Derrière says:

    I mean, I really don’t blame Drake for thhinkinthat wasn’t his kid, but now that it is, he does have to admit that he is adorable! Lucky parents.

  24. Imara219 says:

    I think ppl are clowning because with all of his fronting he ends up with a white woman who isn’t really what he said he goes for. Drake puts on an act and I think in real life he’s a cornball. He can’t actually get with the women he wants and in a.way he has to settle. The jokes are less about his child and more of a reflection on the real Drake.

  25. Angie says:

    His eyes could also change. I’m biracial and my son had blond hair and dark blue eyes until he was around 2. After that, his eyes started to darken and they are now hazel.
