It looks like Drake’s son Adonis is well on his way to becoming a professional basketball player – at just 4 years old.
On Thursday, May 19, the rapper shared a video of his son practicing on a basketball court, aiming for a hoop several feet higher than the toddler. In the end, he dribbled the ball and put his feet down, and ended up landing a perfect basket – much to the delight of his famous dad, who cheered him on from behind the camera.
” To the nursery ! That’s the man, right there! says Drake in the video.
“Where does he get @kingjames mannerisms,” Drake wrote in the caption to the instagram video, tagging Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, which the 4-year-old clearly watched.
Adonis was born in October 2017 to mother Sophie Brussaux. Drake first introduced his son in March 2020 with a heartfelt Instagram postin which he shared a series of snapshots from the early years of Adonis’ life.
The four-time Grammy winner brought Adonis out the following year at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards in May while accepting the Artist of the Decade award. Adonis didn’t feel too comfortable with the attention, however – he burst into tears as his father tried to wrap up his speech. “I want to dedicate this award to you,” Drake said with a laugh as he picked up his son for comfort.
