When it comes to Drake's personal life, many wouldn't expect him to be a settled down "family man."

We all know who Drake is...

But here's a little recap... Aubrey Drake Graham, known best by his stage name "Drake", is a rapper, singer, actor, and producer.

Born in, Ontario, Canada, Drake quickly established himself in the music industry.

After releasing his first mixtape titled, Room for Improvement, his music career had been officially launched.

He became an unstoppable force.

3 years after his initial release, he started promoting his third mixtape So Far Gone which saw him gain lots of commercial success.

And that's when he released his first album.

A year later, Drake released his first album Thank Me Later, which went on to be nominated for a Grammy.

The album had fourteen songs and featured some rather famous faces.

Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar helped Drake produce the album, which received mainly positive reviews. For a new rapper on the scene, he did well.

The next few years saw him get more and more successful.

Over the next decade, Drake established his legacy in the music industry by releasing banger after banger and most of them ended up in the top 10 on every single chart.

His most famous songs are pretty catchy...

You've heard "Just Hold On, We're Going Home," right? It's one of those chill car songs for a summer evening that everyone loves.

Or what about "Hotline Bling"?

That was a big one.

And no one could ever forget "One Dance", could they?

That track took everyone by storm and 4 years later, everyone's still replaying it at every party... It never fails to get us going.

But Drake wasn't always a singer though...

A lot of people forget that Drake actually started out as an actor. He did several commercials before securing a permanent role.

In 2001, Drake landed a role in Degrassi: The Next Generation.

He was commended for playing a basketball star in a wheelchair after he was shot by a classmate.

And almost 2 decades from that time, Drake has secured an illustrious career in the industry.

His music is very popular with the younger generation as they appreciate his ability to discuss raw and sensitive topics, from the child he tried to keep a secret all the way to his faith in God.

However, the singer is no stranger to a little bit of scandal.

After taking a little break from music to enjoy some free time, he made a sudden return to the scene with new tracks.

As a surprise for his followers, the thirty-three-year-old dropped 2 new tracks.

One was called “Chicago Freestyle" and the other “When to Say When."

However, it was the latter that stole the spotlight...

And for all the wrong reasons.

Drake was accused of snubbing his baby-momma and his 2-year-old son, Adonis.

In the song, there is a lyric that reads: "Baby mama fluke, but I love her for who she is." Many have said this line is "disrespectful" and "sleazy", as he is implying that having a child with this woman was a mistake.

Drake has always kept the lid firmly shut on his private life...

Especially when it comes to his son.

Earlier this year, the singer opened up about his personal life.

Drake discussed that he initially didn't see eye-to-eye with the mother of his son, Sophie Brussaux, due to DNA testing drama. But the pair have now put aside their differences and they co-parent their child together as friends.

Drake has put the feud behind him and he wants to focus on being a good father.

"I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened, but I don't have any desire for him to not love his mother," he said. "We found ourselves in a situation and we're both equally responsible and now I'm just excited to be a father."

But fans didn't appreciate this crude reference after everything the pair have been through.

One user put it bluntly... the facts are just the facts.

But Drake quickly defended himself.

He explained how he loves them both unconditionally and has previously also mentioned how he wants to be part of his son's life. I'm sure it's not a big deal for anyone involved.

It seems that Drake is serious about his son...

And this is apparent through the amount of privacy that surrounds Adonis and Sophie.

But the world-famous singer has now given fans some insight into his private life.

He shared an emotional Instagram post earlier today with several photos of Adonis, Sophie, and an adorable throwback snap of Drake's mom and dad.

He touched on current subjects...

"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," he wrote.

The singer spoke about opening up to your own light...

"When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light."

Laughter is the best medicine...

"We are powerful manifestors, so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release," he continued to say.

Drake feels it is important to make peace with your past...

"Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW...It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust."

Drake's message is extremely fitting towards the current COVID-19 crisis.

"You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. 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," he finished by saying.
