During the party, Brown made a video for Jordan and then at the end, dropped down on one knee.
He said: ‘You are the funniest man I know, the kindest man, my biggest cheerleader,’ reports Entertainment Tonight. ‘You made me feel like I could do anything.’
Brown filled the room with flowers and balloons, as well as friends and family.

France posted a cute video to his Instagram story, sending his congratulations.
In the video, Brown says: ‘All of these things I accomplish, is only because when I get home, I know that I have you… you make me feel like I can do anything and I just want you to know that I hope we can conquer the world together.’

Brown is a father-of-two boys, Jason and Chris. He found out he was a father when he was 25 years old, when Jason was aged 10.
Opening up about his fatherhood journey, Karamo said: ‘His mother is the last girl I dated when I was in high school. She got pregnant and moved away and I found out about him when I was 25.’
