“Call Her Daddy” Host’s Romantic Proposal

Alexandra “Alex” Cooper talks about how her now-husband, Matt Kaplan, asked her to marry him in a very personal and beautiful way. Cooper said in an interview with W Magazine that Kaplan really worked with her publicist to set up what she thought would be her picture shoot for the magazine’s feature. The interview came out on Monday.

The host of the “Call Her Daddy” show said, “I remember the shoot feeling like it had no direction, and I could tell everyone was stalling.” The plan kept her “out of the house, out of [her] sweatpants, and in hair, makeup, and nails.”

The 28-year-old said, “When I got home that night, my whole house was lit up with candles, there was music playing, and there was a scavenger hunt that led up to Matt proposing.”

Cooper says that Kaplan, the 39-year-old CEO of production company Ace Entertainment, whom she has only ever called “Mr Sexy Zoom Man,” put “photos or mementos” from their three-year relationship in “every room” of their shared Studio City, Calif., mansion.”

The last clue was a glass of champagne and a card that said, ‘Meet me down by the Buddha,'” she said, adding that they both thought it would be “such bad luck” to move the “500-pound Buddha statue” that the previous owner had put in the home’s patio. When Cooper got there, he was met by “two dogs in little bow ties.” Then Kaplan “knelt down and said, ‘You’re my soulmate, the love of my life.'”

“You make me a better person. “Would you do me the honour of marrying me?” he asked. The media star said yes, and he gave her a beautiful oval-cut diamond ring from the 1920s. Cooper said that she “blacked out” during the “very surreal” moment on March 3, even though she remembered saying “yes.”

Last week, Page Six reported that the two were going to get married. Cooper met Kaplan, the director of the “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” movie series, for the first time in 2020 on a Zoom business call. They went out on dates quickly, and he made her change her mind about getting married. “In my life, I’ve seen a lot of bad marriages and marriages that aren’t stable.”

“A lot of people give up, but I don’t want to,” she told W. “But once our relationship got to the point where it was time, it was clear to me right away that yes, I would love to marry Matt.” Cooper said that she told Kaplan about the note while they were on a date in November, and he was “beaming.”
