Jesse James will marry Kat Von D next month

After announcing his engagement to tattoo artist Kat Von D this week, the two are sharing the news that they’re preparing for their wedding next month.

A source close to the couple told RadarOnline: “”Jesse and Kat don’t see any reason why they should wait to trade vows. They are madly in love with each other and want to make everything official.”

The marriage is to take place outside of California and there won’t be too many guests.

James and Von D stepped out as a couple in September, shortly after Jesse’s divorce from Sandra Bullock, which became official last June. James’ infidelity was the reason that cused the split, as he was caught cheating on Sandra with several women, including Michelle “Bombshell” McGee.

This will be for the fourth marriage for Jesse – who has three children from previous wives Karla and Janine Lindemulder – and the second marriage for Kat, who divorced fellow tattoo artist Oliver Peck in 2007.
