Rolling Stone

Deadmau5 proposed to tattoo artist and reality star Kat von D over Twitter on Saturday. The producer-DJ popped the question by Tweeting a picture of a ring, writing "I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?"

Von D responded with a simple and emphatic affirmative. She later followed up on the sentiment: "Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!" The 31-year-old Canadian, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, also reflected on the development to his 1.8 million Twitter followers:  "holy fucking shit. im engaged and stuff!" he wrote. "thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)"

The pair first started dating in mid-September, according to Us Weekly, though Von D announced over Twitter in November that they had broken up. Von D once dated Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx and was previously engaged to fellow reality star Jesse James, the ex-husband of actress Sandra Bullock.
