After months of rumours, Drake has confirmed that he has a son, revealing that he became a father in 2017.

Explaining the situation on the album’s closing track ‘March 14’, Drake says he only met Sophie twice, rapping: “She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/ Sandi [Graham, Drake’s mother] used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ Shit, we only met two times, two times.”

“I’m out here on the frontlines / just tryna make sure that I see him sometimes,” he adds.

Drake also reveals that he was in Miami when he was told the results of a paternity test, adding that he has only met his son once, around Christmas time.

Claims Drake had secretly fathered a child first began circulating in May 2017 and reemerged a year later, when Pusha T released a diss track.

It included the lines: “Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother [...] A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap / We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts / You are hidin’ a child, let that boy come home.”

At the time, a rep for Drake declined to address the baby claims.
