It's no secret that J. Cole likes to keep his personal life private. After all, it was only revealed that the rapper was married after director Ryan Coogler accidentally let the news slip on stage and in front of a crowd during the MLK Now Q&A earlier this year.

A visibly shocked J. Cole even responded: "Man, you can't do that!....Well, they know now!"

But it turns out that's not all the rapper's been hiding. A glance at the tracklist for his upcoming album 4 Your Eyez Only (due tomorrow) will show listeners two songs, titled "She's Mine, pt. 1" and "She's Mine, pt. 2."

But before you assume those are dedications to his new wife, iTunes' preview of the album reveals the lyrics actually detail his life as a new father. It reads:

"The two-part suite 'She's Mine" may be the most important songs he's written, as Cole hovers over his daughter and finds himself overcome by a strange feeling: hope."

Though it'll likely be long (if ever) before Cole comments on fatherhood outside of music, congrats to him anyway!
