Drake has revealed he had two DNA tests done before he stunned the world on Monday by sharing the first pictures of his adorable son Adonis.

The rapper, who initially kept his two-year-old child's birth a secret, shared a string of photos to Instagram showing off his blue-eyed, blonde curly-haired boy for the first time. Drake, 33, went viral after rapping on the 2018 track ‘March 14’: "I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid."

During an interview with Rap Radar which was released in December last year, Drake said he had to get DNA tests for him to be sure he was his child.

“To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be 100 per cent sure that that was my son or not,” he said.

“So, I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn’t.”

Drake alluded to his son’s pale skin, blue eyes and blond hair and laughed: “If you see my son you understand why.”

“He’s a stunning child you know, with the brightest blue eyes and at the time I was like ‘I don’t know’.

Drake previously explained why he had opted not to share pictures of his son’s face, but flouted that on Monday when he shared the snaps. Photo: Instagram.

“It actually wasn’t until a week before the album came out that I got confirmation that that was definitely my son.”

The rapper then revealed: “It took me two more solid (DNA) tests with two different companies.”

Former adult movie star Sophie welcomed their son in October 2017.

In 2018, rapper Pusher T released a diss track entitled The Story of Adidon, in which he claimed Drake was hiding a secret child with a porn star. Having initially kept the news a secret, Drake confirmed he had fathered a child from a brief fling and opened up about fatherhood on his 2017 album Scorpion.

The rapper’s mind-set appears to have changed as he posted the snaps and gushed over his toddler who he is currently isolating from separately due to the coronavirus pandemic.
