After recently blowing up the Twitterverse with public declarations of their love, Jesse James and Kat Von D are taking their relationship to the next level.
James and Von D, who began dating last summer after the very public dissolution of James’s marriage to Sandra Bullock, are engaged, according to People.
The pair went public with their relationship less than three months after James and Bullock’s divorce was finalized in June.
“I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day,” James told the magazine. “My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f--n' blast!”
The newly engaged couple also told people of their plans to continue splitting their time between James's home in Austin, Texas, and Von D’s home in Los Angeles, California.
“In the end, home is where the heart is, and my heart's with him,” Von D said.
