A huge congratulations are in order for Karamo Brown and his partner Ian Jordan.
The Queer Eye star dropped down to one knee and proposed to his boyfriend during a surprise birthday party he threw for him earlier this week.
“You are the funniest man I know, the kindest man, my biggest cheerleader,” Karamo said to his beau. “You made me feel like I could do anything.”
After popping open a box containing a David Yurman ring, Ian agreed to become Karamo’s husband.

Karamo’s fellow Queer Eye experts Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowoski, Bobby Berk, and Tan France were all present for the proposal too.
Queer Eye’s culture expert recently finished filming the second series of the Netflix hit, after the rebooted show became a global phenomenon back in February.
The second season will be available on Netflix later this year.
Gay Times recently sat down with Karamo to talk about the success of Queer Eye, the challenges that still face LGBTQ youth, and why our community’s history should be taught in schools.
Happy birthday to the love of my life @IanLJordan I love you because of your heart, your humor but mostly because you don’t mind serving #GlamourShots realness w/ me anytime I ask. 🤪 I pray today and this year brings you everything your heart desires. #HBD #40ish #TurnUp pic.twitter.com/N4AOWh9AJS

“That is something that I’ve worked with different organisations to support,” he told us of the latter point. “They’ve started incorporating it into the curriculum in California.
“It’s despicable that you can go through a textbook and not see any of our accomplishments. I think about my parents in the sixties when they were in school and there was no-one of colour in the history books.
“What does that do to your self esteem? What does that do to your mental health, not seeing yourself and not being valued?
“On my Instagram story the other day I posted something about trans history because we don’t talk about it enough – the trans pioneers who do stuff. We don’t talk enough about the intersex pioneers. These are things we should be discussing.
“It needs to be taught in school because both gay and straight people need to be learning this.”
