Newlyweds and CEOs

Alex Cooper and Matthew “Matt” Kaplan, cofounders and co-CEOs of Trending Media Company, tied the knot in a beautiful beachside wedding ceremony in Riviera Maya.

Daddy Gang

Alex, also known as “Father Cooper,” hosts the popular Call Her Daddy comedy and advice podcast on Spotify. She has been hailed as “arguably the most successful woman in podcasting.”

Love in a Pandemic

Their love story began in July 2020 during the pandemic. Alex’s agent arranged Zoom meetings with film and television companies, and her last meeting of the day was with Matt’s company, ACE Productions.

First Impressions

Upon joining the Zoom call, Alex was immediately struck by Matt's handsome appearance. Despite the presence of five other people on the call, she found herself focusing on Matt’s video square.

A Gut Feeling

After the call, Alex had a gut feeling that she would see Matt again. When the television show collaboration didn’t pan out, they decided to take a chance on romance.

Pandemic Style

They went on a few dinner dates in L.A., adhering to pandemic guidelines by sitting in parking lots. After the first dinner, Alex knew that Matt was the man she wanted to spend her life with.

Changing Perspectives

Despite being a cynic about marriage, Alex began to reconsider her views. She had always envisioned a 'life partner' over marriage but found herself rethinking this after falling for Matt.
