LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jesse James and Kat Von D are engaged!
According to People, Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband and the tattoo artist are getting married.
“You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs,” Jesse told the mag.
“I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day,” he continued. “My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said ‘yes.’”
Kat Von D confirmed her relationship with Jesse in September 2010, after he finalized his divorce from Sandra Bullock in June after he admitted to being unfaithful.
“This is definitely something that I think we weren’t expecting, and it’s been great,” the “LA Ink” star told Access Hollywood at the time.
When asked about her new fiancée, she told People, “There is no one else for me. He’s the one.”
Will Kat leave Los Angeles for Austin, Texas?
“If only it were that easy. Having two places we call home will be good for now. In the end, home is where the heart is, and my heart’s with him,” she told the mag.
The couple has not announced when they plan to wed.
