Drake posted a reflective Instagram post on Monday morning, sharing some intimate thoughts and a never-seen-before photo of his son, Adonis. Like some other celebrities—recently, Naomi Campbell wrote introspectively about the rare opportunity to “be still for a while, in one place”—he appears to be using his time spent sheltering in place due to the coronavirus pandemic to ponder, writing, “What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy.”
The first photo Drake shared—a striking, black-backgrounded shot of the rapper and his son—was taken by photographer Catherine Opie, who is known for her irreverent and richly hued portraits of nontraditional families.
The 33-year-old rapper also shared a snap of himself, Adonis, and Adonis’s mother, model Sophie Brussaux. On her own Instagram, Brussaux shared a few additional photos of Adonis, including a photo jokingly altered to show both Drake and Brussaux with blonde hair to match their son’s.
Other photos Drake included in his Instagram tribute to Adonis showed the two-year-old drinking from a cup, riding in a toy car, and posing with his father and mother. It’s unclear whether Drake is self-quarantining separately from Adonis, but the post implied the family members were apart: “I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on,” Drake wrote.
