Call Her Daddy's Alex Cooper Is Married! Who Is Her New Husband, Matt Kaplan?

By Jackie Manno

Alex Cooper is now a married woman!

The host of the mega successful podcast Call Her Daddy and upcoming Olympic correspondent said "I do" to her beau, Matt Kaplan, earlier this month. But who is her new hubby? Read all about Kaplan, below. 

Who is Alex Cooper's new husband, Matt Kaplan?

Matt Kaplan attended Columbia University, where he played football as a quarterback, per Elle. After graduating, he went on to pursue a career in the film industry. He worked as an assistant at production companies such as Lionsgate and Blumhouse, but got his big break when he produced the popular 2018 film To All the Boys I've Loved Before.

Currently the 40-year-old runs Ace Entertainment, and he and Cooper have teamed up to co-found Trending Media Company, which focuses on Gen Z audiences. 

How Alex Cooper and Matt Kaplan met

In a recent interview with Vogue, Cooper describes seeing Kaplan for the first time over video chat during a meeting with Ace Entertainment.

“I got on Zoom and immediately started thinking, 'Wow, this producer is very handsome—but, stay focused Alex.' There were about five other people on the Zoom from his company, but I kept just staring at Matt’s video square,” Cooper told the outlet. 

When the two went out on a dinner date, they hit it off immediately. "There was no doubt in my mind after the first dinner that he would be the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with,” Cooper said. 

Although the 29-year-old podcast host admitted to being "cynical" about marriage for years, it was Kaplan's "unwavering love" for her that changed her mind. In May 2023, Kaplan proposed in a super romantic way that Cooper will always remember. After setting up a fake photoshoot for Cooper so she would have her hair and makeup done, she entered her home to find Adele playing and candles lit everywhere. Kaplan then set up a scavenger hunt, with every card symbolizing a special aspect of their life together. 

"It was the most magical night of my life," Cooper told Vogue. "He is the most romantic man I have ever met."

Their wedding

Cooper and Kaplan tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony in Riviera Maya, Mexico in early April.

According to Cooper, the planning process of the wedding went seamlessly, as Kaplan handled many of the details. They had a small guest list, and she walked herself down the aisle while a string quartet played. Her brother, Grant, officiated the wedding, and better yet, the couple's two golden-doodles, Henry and Bruce, were the ring bearers. As for her dress, Cooper wore a custom made design by Danielle Frankel.

"It was everything we wanted it to be," Cooper said of the magical wedding. 

“Although my life is pretty public, the true intimate bond and connection Matt and I have we actually keep pretty private,” she added. “So for our families and closest friends to hear us verbalize our feelings towards one another in the most intimate setting felt electric."
