December seems to be a time for engagements for young Hollywood stars. First it’s Kelly Clarkson. Now, electronic music star DeadMau5 has just proposed to Kat Von D.
The producer-DJ proposed to the tattooed reality TV star in probably the most romantic way anyone could’ve done in the history of social media possible – via Twitter. The musician made the proposal on Sunday, Dec. 16 by tweeting a picture of a ring with an embedded message.

Kat, whose full name is Katherine Von Drachenberg, responded affirmatively and then later on posted a tweet of her own.
Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé! ❤

DeadMau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, followed up with another tweet saying, “Holy f—king s—t! I’m engaged and stuff! 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.”
31-year-old DeadMau5 started dating Kat, 30, back in mid-September but then they split two months later. The two were on an on-again-off-again relationship until the proposal. If the two do end up tying the knot, this will be Kat’s second marriage, her first being with Oliver Peck.
Moreover, she was engaged twice to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James. On the other hand, this will be DeadMau5’s first. We wish the two the best of luck!
