Fourth time's the charm? Jesse James and Kat Von D just announced they are engaged! Congratulations to the motorcycle guru and the tattoo artist!

James, who divorced Sandra Bullock last year after being embroiled in an epic sex scandal involving Michelle McGee and others, confirmed the news.

"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," James tells People.

The much-maligned James went on to praise Kat as "An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs."

"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," James adds. "I'm so honored she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!"

James began dating Kat Von D this summer, following the collapse of his marriage to Bullock and her breakup with boyfriend Nikki Sixx.

"There is no one else for me. He's the one," The LA Ink said.

Asked if she will move from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas, to be with her fiancé, Von D replied, "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."

There's always Tweeting during time apart.

Just last week, James, who has three kids from his first two marriages, Tweeted: "They say True love will always shine through. The only reason I started Twitter again? so I could publicly profess my love for @thekatvond."

She responded with her own Twitter PDA: "Thank you always supporting me and believing in everything I do. But most of all, thanks for being my best friend."

What do you think? Will Jesse James and Kat Von D last?
