Sorry ladies, it looks like the born sinner is officially a saint. Sister 2 Sister reported that Cole proposed to his college sweetheart, Melissa Heholt, but it seems to have been confirmed this week when Heholt was spotted in L’Fay Bridal shop in New York City. She posed for cameras in front of the wedding dresses with that fiancée glow. Rumors of the couple’s engagement originally sprang up over a year ago. Cole and Heholt met at their alma mater, St. John’s University, where they both graduated from with a bachelor’s degree in Communications. Heholt also sits pretty with a master’s degree under her belt. The private University congratulated the couple via Twitter back in December 2013:
Congrats to @JColeNC on his engagement to his @StJohnsU college sweetheart #SJU #ColeWorld http://t.co/UCMYxAYM0I

It’s shaping out to be a good year for the Roc Nation rapper. Right after selling over 350,000 copies of his latest album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, Cole snagged the cover of ESPN’s music issue with Nascar driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. It’s a nice pairing after Cole shouts Earnhardt out in the closing credits of the album. It must be great right now in Cole World.
