Drake has finally spoken out on being a father. He appeared on LeBron James’ show The Shop to discuss the good and bad things about parenting.

Drake, who shares a child with Adult film star Sophie Brussaux, expresses how the news of his son Adonis took him and family by surprise, especially his mother.

“I was more scared to tell my mom because my mom has had real belief and real relationships with women in my life, like, over the course of my years,” he said. “I’m sure she would expect or be elated if I were to have gotten one of those women pregnant… So it was tough for me to tell her that it’s somebody that she’s never met.”

The “In My Feelings Rapper”, also shares how hard he was on his parents when he was growing up, and then realized that who can’t always get that picture perfect life that you once dreamed of.

“I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who… you know, we’ve had our moments, right?” he continued. “And I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don’t have any desire for him to like not love his mother… I don’t ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible, and now I’m just really excited to be a great father. I have a son, he’s a beautiful boy.”
