“I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day,” he said. “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 his divorce from Sandra Bullock in June and his announcement that the family would be permanently moving to Austin, Texas.
“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.
The couple has not announced when they plan to wed, and where they plan to live – LA or Austin.
