Drake revealed his son to the world in March last year.
The Canadian rapper – whose real name is Aubrey Graham – unveiled the little one, named Adonis, when he was aged three after facing accusations that he was keeping his child – who he shares with former porn star Sophie Brussaux – a secret.
He confirmed he became a father in 2017 on his album Scorpion after his representatives previously denied he was a dad and has since shared that he decided to keep Adonis out of the limelight until he had a DNA test result confirming that he was his father.
And on Thursday, the Hotline Bling musician, 35, gave fans a glimpse at the sweet relationship he has with his offspring by uploading a video of him playing basketball inside his Toronto mansion.

Proving that Drake’s son is already showcasing sporting talent, the four-year-old is seen effortlessly slam dunking the ball in the net.
Drake was accused of hiding his son from the public because he was “ashamed” by fellow rapper Pusha T.
The lyrical genius shed light on the situation in his track Emotionless.
He sang: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid.
“Breakin’ news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call.
“I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe. That s**t is in stone, sealed and signed. She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine.
“S**t, we only met two times.”
He also admitted he had been embarrassed, singing: “I used to challenge my parents on every album. Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent.
“Always promised the family unit. I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”
Drake did a DNA test before going public with his son.

He told Rap Radar: “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.
“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 later opened up on his decision to share a snap of his son on social media.
Speaking on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio on Apple Music, he said: “It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world.
“I just felt like, it wasn’t even anything I talked to anybody about or anything I planned, I just woke up one morning and was like, ‘You know what, this is just something that I want to do’.”
