A lot has happened these past few days in the TV community. Tom from Queer Eye got re-married to beautiful Abby and I cried. Some dumb fuck signed off on the cancellation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and I cried. Hulu might be throwing a life jacket at B99 and I cried. And 1/5 of the Fab Five, Karamo Brown, got engaged overnight and I cried some more.
Karamo, the man who can look you in the eye and see straight into your soul, proposed to his partner of eight years Ian Jordan in one hell of an emotional 38th birthday party for the director. Of course, the rest of the Fab Five were there with Tan France, especially, live-streaming the entire proposal on his Instagram so we could all ugly sob together.
In a post on Instagram, the culture expert wrote:
“Last night, in front of family & friends, I asked my best friend and the love of my life “will you marry me?” He said YESSS!!!!! I’m engaged!”
According to Entertainment Tonight, Karamo not only surprised Ian with the proposal, he also planned the surprise birthday party and made an adorable video dedicated to the love of his life before he got down on one knee. Karamo’s son also made his own speech prior to the proposal.
The engaged couple now wear a set of rings each. One band is silver, the other black.
As soon as people wiped away their tears, a swarm of congratulations overtook Karamo’s twitter including one from the official Queer Eye account:
