Rapper J. Cole reportedly purposed to his girlfriend Melissa Heholt on Dec. 10! The two have been together for more than nine years!

We’re so happy for them! Rapper J. Cole, whose real name is Jermaine Cole, reportedly asked Melissa Heholt to marry him! The couple met in 2003 at St. John University, while he was studying to get his Communications degree.

Aww! We’re happy for the couple. The “Power Trip” singer popped the question on Dec. 10, an insider told MediaTakeOut. He is currently in the middle of his “What Dreams May Come” tour and is set to hit the stage on Dec. 11 in Dublin, Ireland!

The couple usually keep their relationship extremely private. The 28-year-old Roc Nation rapper must really care about her and have a healthy relationship to keep it under wraps — and to be together for so long!

J. Cole: ‘Marriage Is Just A Realtionship’

In a rare interview, he actually did talk a little about his feelings on relationships — and even on marriage.

“I feel like relationships are a beautiful thing, period. Relationships can be really beautiful, they can be really hard, they can be really rewarding, or they can be bad relationships where it’s really detrimental and hurtful, but that’s life, period,” the singer told in October 2013. However, while he admitted his friend just recently got married, he said that it basically is the same thing as a relationship to him.

“But then marriage, marriage is just a relationship to me,” he said. “In my experience, when you’ve been in a relationship for as long as I’ve been in one, there’s no real difference. It’s just a piece of paper that validates what was already real. In marriage you got to go through the same struggles as a relationship, that’s if the relationship is real, because there’s a lot of non-real relationships going on in the world right now. And I think that’s just because of the day and age we’re in, a lot of these relationships are taking place over text messages, it’s not real substance. But when you got a real one, it’s already like a marriage.”
