Who is Alex Cooper's boyfriend? 'Call Her Daddy' host reveals relationship status
A new three-year agreement between Alex Cooper and Spotify is worth more than $60 million in total
Alex Cooper and her sex-positive advice/comedy podcast, ‘Call Her Daddy’ are reportedly leaving Barstool Sports and moving to Spotify exclusively starting July 21. Variety reported that all existing and new episodes of the podcast will remain free and starting July 21, will be available only on Spotify.
A source told Variety that the three-year agreement between Cooper and Spotify is worth more than $60 million in total — earlier reports had said it was a $20 million deal — making it Spotify’s biggest exclusive deal for a woman-led podcast to date.
“I’m incredibly thankful for everyone who has supported, helped, and been a part of ‘Call Her Daddy,'” Cooper said in a statement about the podcast deal. “From its start three years ago, the show has always been about challenging the status quo and manifesting conversations that previously only happened behind closed doors. I can’t wait for this next chapter with Spotify, where I will continue raising the bar with great content and guests for the Daddy Gang.”
“We’re beyond excited to welcome ‘Call Her Daddy,’ one of the most wildly popular podcasts in the world, to Spotify,” Dawn Ostroff, Spotify’s chief content and advertising business officer, said in a statement. “The level of enthusiasm and buzz from listeners generated after each episode is emblematic of the magic of the podcast. Alex connects with the millennial and Gen Z generations while empowering her audience to openly express themselves. As we continue to fulfill our mission to bring some of the most unique and popular creators exclusively to Spotify, we are excited to expand these creative opportunities for both the creators and listeners around the world for free.”
As per reports, ‘Call Her Daddy’ was the No. 5 most-listened-to podcast on Spotify in 2020. It is also the second-most-popular female-created podcast globally on Spotify after ‘Crime Junkie’ hosted by Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat. The show was originally hosted by Cooper and Sofia Franklyn, where the duo would discuss sex and dating. In 2020, they had a public falling out with one another and Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy, resulting in Franklyn quitting the show to start her own podcast. Since then, Cooper has hosted the show solo.
Who is Alex Cooper dating?
On the February 3 episode of the podcast titled ‘I Have A Boyfriend’, Cooper revealed to listeners — who she calls the Daddy Gang — that she had finally decided to settle down with one of the two men she had been seeing. So far, she had introduced multiple men on her podcast, though never revealing their identity. They were assigned pseudonyms like Door #3, Mr Sexy Zoom Man, The Canadian, and Slim Shady.
On the episode, she announced that she was seeing Mr Sexy Zoom Man — someone she had been talking about for a few episodes. She explained how Mr Sexy Zoom Man was coming back from London, forcing Alex to decide if she was ready for a commitment. She was — and to demonstrate that, she told listeners that her friend and she showed up to pick him up from the airport with a sign that called him her boyfriend.
Prior to this, she had reportedly dated New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard. Nicknamed Thor, the professional baseball pitcher reportedly made a cameo appearance in ‘The Spoils of War’, a Season 7 episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ in 2017, in which he played an unnamed Lannister spearman in the episode's climactic battle. They continued to have an on-and-off relationship throughout 2017, though Syndergaard confirmed it was over in December that year.
