The longtime host of the popular podcast Call Her Daddy is officially off the market. Alex Cooper confirmed her engagement to Hollywood producer Matt Kaplan in an interview with W Magazine. Here’s all the piping hot tea you need to know.
Alex Cooper has been hosting the podcast Call Her Daddy since 2018. The podcast is a blend of comedy, relationship, and life advice geared toward a female audience. Although the podcast has had its ups and downs, namely Alex Cooper and her former co-host and roommate Sofia Franklyn having a very public dispute about the podcast, it is now a Spotify exclusive and attracts high-profile guests like Hailey Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and John Mayer. Cooper also details her own personal love life on the show, and since 2020 listeners of the podcast have become familiar with Mr. Sexy Zoom Man. Cooper met her future fiancé on Zoom, hence the very literal nickname. Turns out that Matt Kaplan was Mr. Sexy Zoom Man and produced the successful film series To All The Boys. Their love story was something out of a Hollywood movie, except Cooper was not quite sure marriage was something she wanted.
Then, per W, Cooper told Kaplan during a date night in 2022 that he could propose “whenever he wanted.” Cooper went to a fake photoshoot that Kaplan and her publicist set up for her to get her out of their house. When she returned, she said, “My entire house was covered in candles, lit all over, music playing, and a scavenger hunt leading to Matt proposing.” The scavenger hunt took Cooper throughout their whole house, with each room having a different theme related to their relationship. It finally led her to him, where he was waiting with their two dogs in their courtyard. He got down on one knee and said, “You’re my soulmate, the love of my life. You make me a better man. Please do me the honor of marrying me.” Cooper told W, “I like, blacked out. I think I said yes at first. It was very surreal.”
Mr. Sexy Zoom Man has gone from a mysterious figure to Alex Cooper’s fiancé. Now the real question comes in, will she switch out his nickname for his real one? Stay tuned for more deets on the wedding and more.
