Rapper J. Cole is about to be a father again. He revealed that he and his wife are expecting a unique way.
The Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III arrived last night featuring appearances from J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, T.I., DaBaby, Ty Dolla $ign, and more. On the album closer “Sacrifices,” J. Cole raps about how he’s expecting a second child with wife Melissa Heholt.
“She gave me the gift of my son, and plus we got one on the way,” Cole raps on the track. “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.”
This is the second child for the extremely private couple. They have a son, who Cole also revealed in lyrics. Her rapped about his son on “She’s Mine, Pt. 1” and “She’s Mine, Pt. 2."
In a 2018 interview with Angie Martinez, he spoke about the child: “When I’m home and I come home, outside of like playing with my son, if I go three days without doing music, making a beat, writing a song…I start to feel like, miserable.”
Cole and Heholt met while both were attending St. John’s University in Queens, New York. They have been together for more than a decade. Heholt is an event planner and the executive director of Cole’s Dreamville Foundation.
Congratulations to the couple! May God bless their family.
