Drake is opening up about the joy and terror of parenthood.
The “In My Feelings” rapper dropped by LeBron James’ HBO show, “The Shop”, where he discussed the birth of his son Adonis with adult film star Sophie Brussaux, admitting that it took his family by surprise, especially his mother.
“[I was] more scared to tell my mom because my mom has had real belief and real relationships with women in my life, like, over the course of my years,” he said. “I’m sure she would expect or be elated if I were to have gotten one of those women pregnant… So it was tough for me to tell her that it’s somebody that she’s never met.”
“I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who… you know, we’ve had our moments, right?” he continued. “And I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don’t have any desire for him to like not love his mother… 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, and now I’m just really excited to be a great father. I have a son, he’s a beautiful boy.”
