Meet Kelsey Kreppel, the longtime partner of YouTube star Cody Ko

YouTube royalty is about to tie the knot. Here’s everything you need to know about Cody Ko’s fiancee Kelsey Kreppel. 

Ko is a comedian and so-called rapper with over 5.83 million YouTube subscribers. Kreppel, a pre-school teacher, has a rabid following of her own. The two became romantically linked in 2017, and at the end of December 2021, Ko popped the question. 

Who is Cody Ko’s fiancee Kelsey Kreppel? 

Kreppel was born on Sept. 3, 1993, in Los Angeles, Calif. She studied child and adolescent development in college and is a primary school teacher. 

Like Ko, Kreppel is a YouTuber. She started her channel in December 2017. Kreppel rose to internet fame when she appeared in Ko’s vlogs and podcast Insanely Chill in 2017. They started dating that same year. 

She currently has over 940,000 YouTube subscribers and 869,000 Instagram followers. 

Ko proposed to Kreppel in Malibu

Roughly four months after the couple commemorated their fourth anniversary, Ko proposed to Kreppel in Malibu. 

“Yesterday was a beautiful perfect day. Thanks for making me the happiest guy on earth,” Ko wrote in an Instagram post. 

The couple discussed their engagement in a vlog on Kreppel’s channel. While on vacation, Ko made up an excuse to leave her at breakfast and made Kreppel meet him in Malibu later on. She was reluctant to go because it didn’t logistically make any sense on the trip. But of course, she did, and he popped the question. 

On the podcast Tiny Meat GangKo revealed he had the ring and planned the proposal for months. Before asking the pivotal question, Ko showed Kreppel a long video about their relationship. 

“The one thing I did not plan, though, was that Kelsey did not want to go to Malibu,” he said. “It was definitely very nerve-wracking.”
