J. Cole has managed to live a low key life within his 10+ years in the rap game. So low key that it took a new song to reveal that his wife is pregnant with their second child.
The 34-year-old’s Dreamville camp finally released their compilation project Revenge Of The Dreamers III on Friday. It’s on the album’s last track “Sacrifices” featuring Cole, EARTHGANG, Smino and Saba, where the Dreamville frontman reveals he and his wife Melissa Heholt are expecting their second child.
Cole dedicates verse to expressing his undying love for his wife before announcing their second pregnancy.
“I had nowhere to go, she gave me a place to stay/She gave me her heart to hold/I still got that shit to this day,” he spits. “She ridin’ with me on the road/She ridin’ with me in the A/Huggin’ the block, huggin’ the block, okay.
“She gave me the gift of my son, and plus we got one on the way/She gave me a family to love, for that, I can never repay, I’m crying while writing these words/The tears, they feel good on my face.”
Awwwww. Talk about real love! The college sweethearts married in 2015 after meeting during their time at St. Johns University in Queens, NY. The couple already have one son together and live in Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
