Jesse James and Kat Von D Engaged

By: Celebuzz / January 20, 2011

After less than a year of dating, Jesse James and Kat Von D have announced they are engaged.

The two started dating last summer, after Jesse’s marriage to Sandra Bullock ended due to the exposure of Jesse’s numerous extramarital affairs.

The tattooed duo chatted with People about their engagement, and Jesse said:

“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.”

The LA Ink star added:

“There is no one else for me. He’s the one.”

The couple did not mention when the union would take place, but Kat did talk about the possibility of ditching LA for Texas, saying:

“In the end, home is where the heart is, and my heart’s with him.”
