Jesse James announces his engagement to Kat Von D less than a year after his divorce to Sandra Bullock

Wow!! Jesse James just revealed he asked Kat Von D to marry him and she said yes! “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 People magazine. “I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. 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!”

Kat Von D, 28, first confirmed their relationship on August 19, 2010 only a few months after Sandra Bullock and Jesse’s divorce was finalized on June 28. What was first thought of as Jesse’s rebound, especially considering how much the LA Ink star resembles Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, has now apparently turned into much more.

“There is no one else for me. He’s the one,” says Jesse’s fiancee. And when asked if she was moving from LA to Austin she revealed, “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.”

What do you think of this announcement? Too soon and hurtful to Sandra or do you forgive Jesse and wish him happiness? Sound off below!
