Nearly two years ago, Pusha-T and Drake were caught up in a feud (which also involved Kanye West) that initially seemed like a standard beef: Pusha-T fired at Drake for allegedly using ghostwriters for his songs and Drake hit back with a verse. But when Pusha-T brought up Drake's alleged child with Sophie Brussaux, an artist and former adult performer. "You are hiding a child," the rapper said in the bombshell track "The Story of Adidon."

Drake eventually confirmed the existence of his son with Brussaux on his album Scorpion, via tracks "March 14" and "Emotionless."

"I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid," he rapped at the time.

Well, Drake is no longer "hiding a child," as his son, Adonis, has finally made his Instagram debut.

Last year on Instagram, the rapper showed off a piece of hand painted Father's Day art that was ostensibly sent to him by his son. It was one of the first public confirmations of Adonis's existence by the rapper—aside from the Scorpion tracks within which he mentioned having a baby, and the episode of LeBron James's barber shop based HBO talk series The Shop, in which the rapper detailed his feud with Pusha-T and explained why he initially kept his child a secret.

"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," Drake wrote in the caption of the Instagram carousel that reveals the first public images of 2-year-old Adonis, who many are pointing out looks a lot like the rapper's mother, Sandi Graham (who is also featured in the carousel of images, in a throwback picture with his father, Dennis Graham).
