"I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day," the New York Daily News quoted James as telling People magazine.
"My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f---in'' blast!" he said. Though 28-year-old Von D has known James since she was 22, the pair didn't connect until they were both single last year.
Despite James' personal life being splashed across dozens of tabloid covers following news of his extra marital affair, he says he always saw the glass half full. "You know, sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times; 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," James said.
"There is no one else for me. He's the one," Von D added.
