Their romance played out online and in magazines – and now Jesse James and Kat Von D’s relationship will be televised.

On season 5 of LA Ink, which premieres July 28 (10 p.m. ET), viewers will see the tattoo artist, 29, become engaged to her soul mate, James, 42.

“[It’s] a long distance relationship, but we’re just making it work,” Von D says in an upcoming episode.

She also addresses tabloid rumors on the show that she was pregnant and that she moved to Austin, Texas, where James lives.

This season will also follow Von D’s successful gallery opening, her charity work and a major fire that burnt down her Los Angeles home.

Nevertheless, she says in the preview clip: “I feel like I’m the luckiest girl. I don’t care what anyone thinks.”
