Amrit Kapai was excited about the ‘Family Karma’ evening watch party

Earlier that night, Kapai and Kouchoukos (and their pup Theo) happily shared a video from the limo taking them to their watch party. “We are getting ready for tonight’s episode of Family Karma,” Kapai said. “It is a huge one! We are so excited! We’re gonna have a special night. He’s joining us too.” Kapai panned the camera to Theo. “Theo say hi! Watch the episode. See you soon.”


Kapai then shared another video leading Theo from the limousine. He looks carefree and happy. In another video, Kapai showed a packed viewing party of friends who sipped champagne in anticipation of the episode.

‘Family Karma’ captured the emotional proposal

The proposal came after a heartwrenching episode where Kapai came out to his grandmother and told her he planned to marry Kouchoukos. Bravo’s Andy Cohen referred to the episode as groundbreaking. “Tonight’s #FamilyKarma is one of the most powerful episodes of anything to air on Bravo. Incredible. #puddleoftears,” he tweeted.

Kapai admitted he was nervous to propose, which he chose to do on a yacht in Miami. He invited some of the Family Karma cast and then popped the question. “So I don’t tell you nearly enough that I love you,” he told Kouchoukos in the episode. “You’re everything I need, and I’ve known for a while now that I can’t do life without you. You’re a good person, and you’re gonna be such a good father. Remember when we first started dating, you told me you needed to protect your heart, and I said you don’t have to worry about that because I’m gonna protect it. I made that promise to you. Well, I want to renew that promise for the rest of my life, to protect your heart.”
