Jesse James and Kat Von D resume their engagement after calling it off

Barely a month after they announced that they were breaking off their engagement because of physical distance, Jesse reversed his decision after claiming he realized how “special” his ex-girlfriend is.

The West Coast Choppers founder confirmed to People that Kat Von D is wearing her engagement ring again.

“Sometimes you are only given one chance in life,” he says. “It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her.”

The couple posted pictures of them kissing on their Twitter pages. Jesse added the caption “para siempre” which is Spanish for “forever.”

The couple got engaged last January and was planning to marry this summer to celebrate their first year together.

TLC recently announced that the current season of LA Ink is the last for Kat Von D.
