Most of us probably didn't even know that Drake had a son because, in the beginning, the rapper kept it a secret. However, we were all in for a surprise when Drake shared his little one's photo on his Instagram Story.

If you are familiar his song  Emotionless from the 2018 album  Scorpion,  you know that the lyrics confirmed that he had a child. The lyrics read;

I wasn't hidin' my kid from the world

 I was hidin' the world from my kid

From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate

 Until you starin' at your seed, you can never relate

 Breakin' news in my life, I don't run to the blogs 

The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call…

Now, we have the official confirmation from the rapper. But, who's the baby mama? It's Sophie Brussaux. She is a former adult movie star and a French artist. The couple hooked up in 2017 after Drake and Jennifer Lopez called it quits. 

Sophie was first linked to Drake when he was on his Boy Meets World Tour in 2017. And, the couple was spotted together in Amsterdam when they were on a dinner date.

According to People, Sophie even told the TMZ then that the rapper had asked her to abort the child and she had those text messages to prove it. Initially, Drake was sceptically to believe that Brussaux was carrying his child. However, when she was three-and-a-half months pregnant, Brussaux hired two reputed attorneys in New York to prove the paternity as well as seek child support. 

At that time, the rapper's rep had said, "If it's, in fact, Drake's child, which he does not believe it is, he will do right by the child." So, once the DNA test confirmed Drake's paternity, he embraced the child. And, we can all agree that he is doing right by his little one.
