Drake revealed he felt ‘great’ sharing his son with the world.
The rapper confirmed back in June 2018 that he had son Adonis, with Sophie Brussaux, and he explained it felt ‘freeing’ to be able to tell everyone.
Speaking to fellow rapper Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio, he said: ‘It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world and I just felt like… it wasn’t even anything I talked to anybody about or anything I planned.
‘I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do.’
‘I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son. I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket.
‘So, I just wanted to free myself of that.’
Drake later stated that it was ‘inspiring’ to see his labelmates, such as Lil Wayne, being able to focus on music and look after their children at the same time, and has credited the Young Money record label for allowing him to do the same.
‘I’ve watched you be a functioning rap father for years, an incredible father,’ he told Wayne. ‘And that gave me a lot of confidence too.
‘A lot of us, like  Chainz, is a great father and a lot of the guys that we came up around just being great family men on those yours and on those long studio nights when albums need to get done.

‘But specifically you, just how you always just made that s**t function and work and how much love the people in your life have for you.’
He added: ‘And I could just tell the way your kids would stare at you that the time and effort that you put in as a father.
‘So, that was really inspiring for me just to know that I can still keep pushing forward as a musician and be there for my son.’
