April from The Ultimatum Debuts Her New, “Older” Boyfriend After Jake Splits

Is There Hope for Rae and Jake in Netflix’s The Ultimatum?

April Marie gets what she wants!

And what she really wants is a ring on her finger.

The so-called “firecracker” of The Ultimatum revealed the identity of her mystery boyfriend after teasing him during the reunion episode, which aired on Netflix on April 13. The 23-year-old revealed on the show that she is in a “serious” and “healthy” relationship with a “older” man in Austin, Texas.

“Mr. Right came along and swept me off my feet,” April later joked to E! News, “and we’ve been dating for six months.”

Cody Cooper, a Texas-based real estate broker and vape entrepreneur, turns out to be her new love. According to his Instagram bio, the 30-year-old businessman is also working on a brand called WOODCOX, which is described as a “Men’s Luxury Underwear” line that will be released soon.

On April 14, April shared their love story on Instagram, writing, “Thank you for being who you are. Thank you for being the most incredible man, boyfriend, partner, and best friend anyone could ask for. I adore you, respect you, and love you for a million reasons.”

She admitted that dating her isn’t always “easy” and thanked Cody for “not letting me go” alongside a video montage of their relationship. April also expressed her admiration for him for his daily assurance, being a gentle communicator, and showing her affection and respect.

“You’re strong, passionate, and persistent,” she wrote.

“That’s why I fell in love with you right away… I see so much of myself and who I want to be in YOU…

Thank you for coming into my life and demonstrating what LOVE is.”

Cody also shared a photo of the couple embracing on a boat. “It’s only been six months, but it feels like a lifetime,” he explained. “We’ve traveled the world together, celebrated holidays and birthdays with family, moved in together, and done so much more in such a short period of time. On top of that, I was worried about a reality TV show… but now that it’s aired, I’m so proud to see that the rest of the world adores you almost as much as I do.”

Cody, who already has over 20,000 Instagram followers, first hinted at his new romance when he was spotted out with April in Las Vegas ahead of the series finale. On Sunday, he reposted a photo of April with her tongue out and a glass in hand to his Instagram Story.

April appears to be her second chance at a happy ending.

During the reunion, she said, “I have never been so happy or felt so loved.” “I’m very happy in my current relationship.”

According to the influencer, Cody is getting ready to marry soon. “This is someone who wakes up every single day with me and says, ‘I love you, I can’t wait to marry you,'” she explained.

That’s a departure from her previous relationship.

April gave her ex-boyfriend Jake Cunningham the option of marrying her or leaving the relationship before embarking on a trial marriage with co-star Colby Kissinger, as seen on The Ultimatum. She did, however, admit in a recent Instagram Story that she and Colby “NEVER” hooked up.

Jake, on the other hand, found a connection with Rae Williams and dumped April, but it didn’t take long for her to pick herself up. She’s been teasing her new man on Instagram for the past week, writing on April 14 that he’s been “the best thing” to happen to her since filming wrapped.

Check out where the rest of The Ultimatum’s cast members are now.

Madlyn Ballatori and Colby Kissinger: Married

Last time we saw Madlyn Ballatori and Colby Kissinger, the pair said, “I do.” Now, in a recent E! News interview, Madlyn revealed that she is pregnant. 

“We are having a baby in a month,” she said. “I’m 35 weeks pregnant. We’re taking on life together. We couldn’t be happier.”


Alexis Maloney and Hunter Parr: Engaged

Alexis Maloney and Hunter Parr are as happy as can be! 

“We’re full steam ahead with wedding planning,” Hunter told E! News. “We’re getting married this summer. We’ve been dying to share everything with everybody, so we’re very excited to finally be able to let the cat out of the bag and celebrate properly.”


Shanique Imari and Randall Griffin: Together

Even though Shanique Imari revealed that the pair broke up for six months after Randall Griffin‘s proposal, these two love birds are still going strong. 

“We are still together,” Shanique told E! News. “I’m just working in a different location so [we’re] not in the same city together, but we’re definitely still working on our relationship and working toward that.”

She also added that there’s “no date in the books yet” for the wedding.


Nate Ruggles and Lauren Pounds: Engaged

Even though some cast members viewed Nate Ruggles‘ proposal to Lauren Pounds as fake (yikes), during the reunion, the pair revealed that they are still engaged.


April Marie: In a Relationship

April Marie‘s time on the show may not have ended the way she wanted, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t get a happily ever after! 

The 23-year-old revealed to E! News that she is in a new relationship. 

“I am still in Austin, Texas. I decided to give [it] a try, and in the middle of that, Mr. Right came along and swept me off my feet,” April said. “While I was supposed to have my hot-girl winter, he interrupted it and we’ve been dating for six months.”

She has since revealed his identity as real estate agent Cody Cooper


Jake Cunningham: Single

Although Jake Cunningham broke up with April to be with Rae Williams, during the reunion, the 26-year-old revealed that he is single.

Also, Jake and Rae never used the plane tickets he bought her, and tbh, we’re kind of sad about it.


Rae Williams: It’s Complicated

Rae briefly “tried to fix things” with Zay Wilson, but it did not work out. 

But don’t fret! Rae is moving on. Rae revealed during the reunion that she had a “casual” relationship with a woman. 

“I’m kinda figuring out myself and my sexuality,” Rae explained.


Zay Wilson: Single

A 4-1-1 to all the ladies: Zay is on the market! 

During the reunion, the 25-year-old from Austin, Texas, noted that he is now single and has not tried to date anyone since the show. 

“I’ve been trying to figure out what I actually want,” Zay explained. “Just taking my time and taking it slow.”
