Sandra Bullock's ex-husband, Jesse James, whose alleged infidelity triggered their divorce last year, has reportedly announced that he is engaged to Kat Von D.

According to People, Von D is the woman the 41-year-old began dating after he cheated on the Oscar winning actress, 46.

He said: "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.

"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.'

The 28-year-old tattoo artist, Von D, real-name Katherine Drachenberg, added: "There is no one else for me. He's the one."

PopEater reports that a source said that while she wasn't happy about it, Bullock at least knew about it: "Sandra knew it was coming, and she was ready."
