Jesse James, the American motorcycle mogul and television personality, is set to marry the tattoo artist Kat Von D, just seven months after finalising his divorce from Sandra Bullock, reports US Magazine. The 41-year-old began dating Von D shorty after splitting from the ACADEMY AWARD winning actress and the couple confirmed their engagement on Twitter yesterday (20th January 2011).
Speculation of a proposal arose earlier this week and Von D was forced to officially announce the news after her social networking followers began posting messages of congratulations on her page. Writing yesterday, the 28-year-old said, "Thank you for all the wonderful, loving congratulations from you all.. Overwhelmed with joy right now!" She later sent a message to her soon-to-be husband that read, "I guess the 'kat' is outta the bag, eh?" The marriage will be the 'Monster Garage' star's fourth and his exes include KARLA JAMES, the adult movie actress JANINE LINDEMULDER and most recently, SANDRA BULLOCK. Speaking at the premiere party for a Los Angeles Art Show on Wednesday, the 'Miami Ink' star said, "I think our relationship has matured so much and matures every day and grows. I am not ashamed of anything. I am really excited about it. Everyday we grow stronger".
The couple were first pictured together in August 2010 when they attended a Las Vegas museum exhibition together. Earlier this month, James posted a message on his fiance's Twitter page that read, ""I have never felt so loved! I'm the luckiest MoFo in the world!".
