Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown is engaged — and the proposal was perfect

Queer Eye star Karamo Brown proposed to his boyfriend of eight years, Ian Jordan, on Wednesday, May 9 — and it’s safe to say they will have one stylish wedding.

Brown, 37, popped the question during Jordan’s surprise 40th birthday party at sbe’s HYDE Sunset in L.A. The Netflix series’ culture expert dropped down on one knee and presented his director love with a silver David Yurman band, Entertainment Tonight reported on Wednesday, May 9. 

“You are the funniest man I know, the kindest man, my biggest cheerleader,” Brown told Jordan, per ET. “You made me feel like I could do anything. . . . I hope we can conquer the world together for the rest of our lives. Ian Lamont Jordan, will you marry me?”

Just go to ep 8 and loop-repeat @jvn pirouetting into the dance studio until those tears of heartbreak and love for our fellow humans turn to ones of joy for that lovable man in full dance attire glory. Also, since I have you, big thx to @theory__ and über-talented artist @jamesconcannonart for keeping me warm these past dos semanas of press. 📸@jkrietemeyer
