Alexandra Cooper is one of the hosts of the explicit podcast Call Her Daddy. Cooper and her friend Sofia Franklyn came up with the idea for the podcast when they started having an explicit conversation about sex during a vacation in Texas. The podcast became an instant success, and after four episodes, Barstool Sports picked it up.
Cooper is also an aspiring social media star with 102K subscribers on her self-titled YouTube channel. Her Instagram page has 1.2 million followers, and it contains a wide range of photos of Alexandra. This piece will look at Alexandra’s beef with her friend Sofia Franklyn, Cooper’s relationship history, and her family.
She recently fell out with her Call Her Daddy co-host Sofia Franklyn
Sofia and Cooper started the Call Her Daddy podcast at a friend’s house. The pair rose quickly from their humble beginnings, and soon made a three-year deal with Barstool Sports. Sofia and Cooper had chemistry, and they knew how to run the show and attract more listeners. They considered themselves equals, but that perception changed after Cooper got a raise and didn’t tell Franklyn about it.
After a year with Barstool, Franklyn’s boyfriend and HBO Sports EVP Peter Nelson convinced Sofia and Cooper to renegotiate their contracts. Barstool Sports rejected the pair’s offer and countered with an amended offer which offered significantly higher salaries to Cooper and Sofia. It also gave the pair control over the intellectual property.
Cooper was satisfied with the terms, but Franklyn was adamant that the pair could get more. Franklyn hired a new agency and planned to present an offer to Barstool Sports’ management. Cooper stated in a video posted on her YouTube channel that she’d had enough and decided to accept the offer even if it meant that she had to end relations with Sofia. She said:
“I was like holy fucking shit, these people are never going to be fucking happy. It was all about the money. At this point, as much as I wanted Sofia to be a part of this journey with me and take this deal with me, when I got this document this was the exact moment I vividly remember making the decision to pick up the phone and call David Portnoy.”
Franklyn explained her side of the story in an Instagram live video posted on 19th May. She stated that Cooper’s deception caused the saga and that she wished that the pair could have handled the matter differently.
Cooper dated baseball star Noah Syndergaard in 2017
Noah and Alexandra were first spotted in April 2017 watching a Knicks game courtside. The pair had an on and off relationship throughout 2017. They were last spotted together at an early December 2017 game between the Knicks and the Grizzlies.
A week after that game, Noah tweeted that baseball was his ‘significant other.’ Noah is the only topic that Alexandra shies away from on her podcast. She doesn’t refer to him by name when talking about her exes. Cooper appears to be single, but it doesn’t stop her from having fun in New York. In an episode of Call Her Daddy, Sofia and Alexandra talked about the wide range of men they meet in New York.
Cooper said, “If you walk into Socialista, you are getting guys that are, like, dressing nicer – suits – and they’re bougie. Or if you got to the local bar, you can find more just-out-of-college guys who are into sports. And Sofia and I do both… it’s more what we are in the mood for that night.”
Alexandra’s mom was initially against the content of Cooper’s podcast
Bryan and Laurie Cooper raised Alexandra Cooper in Newtown, Pennsylvania, alongside her sister, Kathryn, and her brother, Grant. Bryan Cooper played hockey, and he inspired Alexandra’s love for sports.
Alexandra’s choice of sport was football, and she excelled at it during her time at The Pennington School. She helped the school team clinch four Mercer County Tournament Championships. Cooper also played football at Boston University for three years. She told Bucks Local News that her love for competitive soccer convinced her to join Boston University. Cooper said:
“I love soccer and the level of soccer at Ivy League colleges is not comparable to D-One. I wasn’t ready to risk losing my level of play.”
Alexandra gave up soccer for a career in the media. Cooper’s mom was initially concerned when she heard the subjects that her daughter discussed on Call Her Daddy. Alexandra stated in episode 9:
“My mother has lost her mind [over it]. She told me the other day that she knows Alex and I will be approached to do a porno.”
However, with time, she became supportive of her daughter’s podcast.
