Alexis DeJoria on Jesse James: Such an Amazing Man!

by at .

Alexis DeJoria waited so long to find the right guy.

In Jesse James, she knows she found that guy.

The drag-racing beauty says she had an undeniable connection with him from their very first meeting, and knew he was "The One" right off the bat:

Alexis DeJoria, Jesse James

"We actually met at the races in Dallas. I was racing at the time, and [Jesse] had been friends with my dad [Paul Mitchell billionaire John Paul DeJoria] for a while."

"So he came up to see my dad and the guys that I race with, and that was it. It was the first time we met, and we just hit it off. He has never missed a race since."

"I can't even tell you ... we have so much in common," she continues.

"We just click. I've never had that in a man before. I've never experienced that with anyone, so I knew it right away. He was definitely the one. It has been amazing."

"I think I wanted to marry him the first day," she says, laughing.

"It's just like marrying your best friend. It's perfect."

Jesse James married Alexis DeJoria in March of this year.

DeJoria, who has a 10-year-old daughter, Bella, from a former relationship, says their kids feel the same way as she does about her new husband.

James has three children from previous marriages, too.

His daughter Chandler and son Jesse Jr. are from his first marriage to Karla James, and his daughter Sunny is from his second wife Janine Lindemulder.

He was also married to actress Sandra Bullock and engaged to Kat Von D, both of whom he cheated on many, many times. But no matter, Alexis says.

"Our daughters [Bella and Sunny] are the same age, and they just click. They are like two peas in a pod. It's the cutest thing ever," DeJoria says.

"[Bella] has always wanted a sister, so it just worked out perfectly."

The NHRA standout also notes that her new husband is very supportive of her racing career, which he can also relate to, given his own profession.

"He really understands it," she says.

"He wants to get in there and get his hands dirty and work. He's in there cleaning parts, welding on the car. He's very, very active in my profession, and it's awesome."

Fourth time's the charm?
