Drake and little Adonis just keep giving us reasons to swoon. 

Take, for example, when the superstar and his 4-year-old son basically stole the show at May's 2021 Billboard Music Awards, where the performer was honored as Artist of the Decade

Drake took the stage while hand-in-hand with the little guy, who was dressed up in a red flannel shirt, and after the rapper received the trophy, he handed it to his son to hold. Adonis managed to keep his hands on the prize throughout the emotional acceptance speech—even though the hardware appeared to be a bit heavy—all while Drake rested his own hand on Adonis' shoulder for support. 

"To my beautiful family," the "Hotline Bling" artists told the audience toward the end of the speech. When Adonis started to walk away, Drake lifted him into the air and exclaimed to him, "To you! I wanna dedicate this award to you." 

Drake, who welcomed Adonis with artist Sophie Brussaux in October 2017, is rarely seen in public with his son, although that doesn't mean the world hasn't gotten to enjoy a number of precious moments between them.
