For anyone wondering what the relationship status is of Hollywood's newest hot young director, please know that he's 100% taken, marrying Zinzi Evans in May of 2016. Like Coogler, Evans is a filmmaker herself, working in assistant director and producer capacities on the short film Locks, as well as working on Coogler's 2015 film, Creed.

They currently do not have any children, but Coogler recently told The YBF that he realized he wants daughters "real, real bad." Why? He told the site that he "thought, making Fruitvale (Station), I want kids," but after working on Black Panther (which has a number of awesome women in the cast, including Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, and Letitia Wright) he realized that he has to "have some daughters."
