The rapper became a father by accident, and he is now opening up about his experience with fatherhood so far. Drake was a guest on LeBron James’ HBO show, titled The Shop and he discussed both the joys and the terrors of becoming the dad of baby Adonis.
According to him, his family was taken by surprise by the news.
‘I was more scared to tell my mom because she’s had real belief and relationships with women in my life, over the years. I am 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 is somebody that she has never met.’
He added that ‘I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who… you know, we have had our moments, right? And I do want to be able to explain to my baby boy what happened. But I do not have any desire for him to not love his mother… I do not ever want the world to be angry at his mother.’
‘We have found ourselves in a situation and we’re both equally responsible, and now I am just very excited to be a great father. I have a son, he is a beautiful boy,’ the dad of one gushed before showing James a pic of his son.
The host was surprised to see that Adonis has some ‘crazy blue eyes.’
Drake also talked about his feud with Kanye West and Pusha-T, the latter who dropped a diss track called The Story of Adidon in which he revealed Drake had a secret child.
‘I knew something was going to come up about my kid. They had to add the deadbeat dad part to make it more appealing.’
