QUEER Eye star Karamo Brown got emotional as he spoke about raising his surprise son as a single father.
The 38-year-old opened up on Monday’s Dancing With The Stars as he revealed that he only discovered he had a son in 2007 when he was notified that he had a ten-year-old son.
He explained that he had been just fifteen years old when “I had fathered a kid with my last and only girlfriend”, but did not know of his existence for ten years.
Karamo got full custody of his son the same year and went on to adopt his younger brother in 2010.
“My sons are my world,” he told the camera of the youngsters, Chris and Jason, whom he raised as a single father for years.
Brown lives in Los Angeles with his sons whom he has now raises with his fiance Ian Jordan, who is called “pops” by the boys.
The TV host danced a samba to the Lion King, which he dedicated to his sons, however, he failed to impress the judges, scoring 21 points – and coming second to last.
Bruno says it was a “great performance” but that he needs more “elasticity,” while Carrie Ann complimented the star for radiating positivity, but criticised the technicalities of his footwork.
Len Goodman told him his performance was “just like Disney: it was fun and it was joyful.”
Karamo had a hard time keeping his tears back while talking afterwards with Erin Andrews, explaining how emotional and happy he felt to have gotten a chance to perform in front of his sons.
Spoiler alert – none of the nine couples left in the show were eliminated this week, which had a Disney theme.
