Drake’s Son Looks Just Like His Jewish Grandma

Since hunkering down in his Toronto mansion to wait out the pandemic, Jewish dad Drake has apparently been feeling emotional (I mean, who hasn’t?). Now that he’s self-isolating, the rapper has had loads of time to ponder the important things in life, like his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, new tracks, and the importance of being a family man.

On Monday, the rapper, 33 — who was born Aubrey Drake Graham to his Jewish mom, Sandra Graham, and dad, Dennis Graham — publicly shared photos of his 2-year-old son, Adonis Graham, for the first time ever. 

Drake shares Adonis with artist and former sex worker Sophie Brussaux, 30. The world first learned of their baby’s existence in 2018 when rapper Pusha T released a diss track about  Drake, and Drake subsequently confirmed the news in a track of his own a month later. 

Now, about those adorable pics, which Drake posted to Instagram: Excuse us for stating the obvious, but this kid is seriously adorable. With curly blonde locks and blue, doe eyes, Adonis looks nothing short of an angel! But what has us kvelling the most is the likeness between the toddler and his Jewish bubbe, Sandi Graham. 

Considering that both Drake and Brussaux have brown hair, it’s pretty clear that Adonis gets his blonde, curly Jew-fro from his paternal grandma — AKA Drake’s mom. Among the various photos Drake shared on Instagram was an old snap of his divorced parents — Sandi, 60, raised Drake as a single mom in Toronto after she divorced his dad — prompting fans to draw the comparison between the rapper’s mom and his son. 

If the images of Adonis and his parents weren’t enough, Drake shared a very emotional caption about staying positive under the COVID-19 pandemic by connecting “to your own inner light,” and stressing the importance of family. 


“When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright,” he wrote. “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.”  

In the viral Instagram post, shared just weeks after Drake called Brussaux a “fluke” in his new freestyle, “When to Say When” — “Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is” he continued: 

“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.” We’re loving this allusion to tikkun olam

The images that Drake shared of son Adonis were taken during his birthday party in October. We’re not sure when the Jewish rapper last saw his son and baby mama, but since being under self-quarantine Drake has been missing his “beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite.” 

Just after Adonis’ Instagram debut on his dad’s personal page, Brussaux shared a series of adorable photos on Instagram featuring her son’s punim: “Thanking God every day for blessing me with such a beautiful family and amazing friends. I wish that much on everyone, keep safe and positive, sending a lot of positive vibes to the world.” 


Stay safe, everyone!
