At last night’s Billboard Music Awards, Drake may have won the Artist of the Decade award, but his son Adonis really stole the show. Let’s get into it!
As fans remember, Drake introduced his son Adonis to the world last year. Drake shares Adonis with artist and former adult film star Sophie Brussaux. And while he doesn’t share a whole lot about fatherhood on social media, Drake posts an occasional snap of his adorable three-and-a-half-year-old son, like this one from father’s day last year.
But fans were in for a treat during Sunday nights BBMAs because Adonis took the stage with Drake when Drake accepted the major honor as Billboard’s Artist of the Decade.
Drake is the third artist ever to receive this honor for chart dominance throughout the 2010s, joining past winners Mariah Carey from the 1990s and Eminem from the 2000s. And Drake and Adonis walked out to accept the award they were hand and hand, and throughout his speech, Drake kept his hand on Adonis’ shoulder.
And just when you think this moment couldn’t get any cuter, Drake immediately handed the award over to his son. “I want to dedicate this award to my friends, I want to dedicate this award to my longtime collaborators. I want to dedicate this award to all my peers.” But towards the end of Drake’s speech, when he was thanking his “beautiful family.”
Adonis started to move away from being center stage… “To my beautiful family, hey wait wait wait. And to you, I want to dedicate this award to you.” I mean, even though Adonis shed a tear, this is honestly one of the sweetest and most real moments we’ve got to see between Drake and Adonis, and we can’t get enough of it!
And neither could fans! Adonis started trending on Twitter along with Drake Decade. Another person shared photos from the moment and wrote, “everybody shut up drake and adonis are so cute” Another fan jokingly asked who made Adonis cry alongside this photo. And many others just kept writing how adorable and precious Adonis is.
And we couldn’t agree more, we can’t get enough of these two, and it was most definitely a highlight of the night. After receiving his award, Drake took to Instagram to share some sweet behind-the-scenes moments with him and his son. Clearly, he thought it was as adorable as we all did.
Major congrats to Drake on this massive award, and we’re so glad we got to experience this sweet family moment. We can’t wait to see more of this father-son duo!
