Cole opened up in a rare new interview...

J. Cole has revealed that he is the proud father to a baby boy.

The rapper, who is notoriously private about his life, broke the news about his child on previous album ‘4 Your Eyez Only’.

Many fans assumed that J. Cole and his wife had welcomed a daughter, following cryptic lyrics throughout the 2016 album.

However during a rare new interview with radio personality Angie Martinez, the ‘1985’ rapper accidently spilled the information.

“I’ve got purpose on a more selfish level,” he said, while talking about changes in his life.

“But I feel I’ve created a life where my purpose is too much placed in music. “To where… when I’m home and I come home, outside of playing with my son, if I go three days without doing music, making a beat, creating a song… I start to feel miserable.”

Following the release of interview yesterday evening, fans expressed their confusion after previously being convinced that he had a daughter.

Meanwhile, J. Cole also spoke about a number of other topics in the interview, including his relationship with Kanye West, Lil Pump, his battles with addiction and more.

J. Cole will headline London’s Wireless Festival this year, alongside Stormzy, Migos, DJ Khaled and more.
