Amid rumours that the pair have split, tattooed reality TV stars Jesse James and Kat Von D have announced that couldn't be further from the truth, and that plans are moving forward for a summer wedding.
"We're still going strong. Things are completely good with us," said James, adding that the pair are set to wed this summer on the one year anniversary of the day they started dating. Added James, "That day can't come soon enough. Everything is on track. I am absolutely more in love today than I was a year ago. She's the one for me."
Though the exact date was not revealed, the couple took their romance public last year over Labour Day weekend, so it looks like the pair will be married before his three children - daughters Chandler, 16, and Sunny, 7, and son Jesse, Jr., 14, return to school.
The PDA-friendly pair have known each other for years, but connected after James finalized his divorce from actress Sandra Bullock, who left him amidst revelations that he had cheated with multiple women, and while the couple were in the process of adopting son Louis Bardo, now 18 months, whom Bullock eventually adopted on her own.
The couple commutes regularly between Los Angeles, where she owns and operates the LA Ink tattoo parlour, and Austin, where James moved with his children following his divorce. Chandler and Jesse are his children with first wife Karla, with whom he shares parenting duties, while Sunny is his daughter with former adult film star Janine Lindemulder, whose drug problems have led her to relinquish custody to the West Coast Choppers owner.
