Drake Had A Sweet Moment With His Son Adonis On Stage At The 2021 Billboard Music Awards



“I want to dedicate this award to you,” Drake said to his son, Adonis, after accepting the award for Artist of the Decade at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 23.) It marked the first time Drake, 34, brought his 3-year-old son to a major event, and things got a bit too overwhelming for the young boy.

As Drake lifted up Adonis to show him to the crowd, the loud noise scared the poor baby, and he hugged his daddy’s leg while crying widely. Drake laughed it off, like any loving dad would, and concluded his speech.

It’s been nearly three years that the world learned that Drake was a father. In response to Pusha T’s tea-spilling, paternity-accusing rap track, “The Story of Adidon,” Drake acknowledged his son on his 2018 album, Scorpion. “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid,” Drake rapped on “Emotionless,” adding, “Breaking news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ the only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call/ They always ask, ‘Why let it run if it’s false’/ You know a wise man once said nothing at all.” He also referenced Adonis on “March 14th,” the album’s closing track.
