“I hope that we can conquer the world together for the rest of our lives,” Brown said between tears. “Ian Lamont Jordan, will you marry me?”
Jordan, of course, said yes, nodding through tears. Brown gave Jordan an engagement ring by David Yurman and both partners will be wearing one.
In addition to his sweet proposal Brown surprised Jordan with an emotional video of messages from loved ones sharing what makes Jordan special. The surprises did not stop there. After the video was over Jordan was surprised by his loved ones in person including his mother who had been flown in. Jordan will be marrying Brown who has two sons, ages 21 and 17.
