Karamo Brown is 32-year-old gay man, who is defying the odds as a single father.

Brown is best known for his role on MTV’s The Real World: Philadelphia, which originally aired 2004-2005. These days he keeps busy working as a TV host and model, while raising his two sons Jason and Chris in Los Angeles.

 

Surprise! You have a son

After filming The Real World, Brown was contacted by an ex-friend from high school who had surprising news for him — he had a 9-year-old son named Jason.

“My best friend at the time, she and I, being young kids had a relationship and she got pregnant, but I wasn’t aware of it,” Brown said. “Years later after being on The Real World I was coming home one day and there was a stack of papers on the doorstep for back child support, and I was like, ‘wow, there’s a kid out there in the world that has my name.’”

Brown, who was living in Los Angeles as the time, put a halt to his career ambitions, moved back to his home state of Texas, and began the process of adopting is son Jason.

  1. An inspirational story for Father’s Day! It is a good day to thank all the gay fathers out there as well as the fathers of LGBT children who advocate for them and make home a safe, accepting, and nurturing place to be.
