Jesse James may be as well-known for his cheating scandals as he is for his work as a customizer or reality star at this point, but none of that fazed his bride Alexis DeJoria when the pair first met — all she could think about was starting their life together.
Alexis opened up to Us Weekly about their relationship and revealed that, despite the negative publicity surrounding the sour end of his previous romances, she wanted to marry him from day one.
“We actually met at the races out in Dallas. I was racing at the time, and [Jesse] had been friends with my dad [Paul Mitchell billionaire John Paul DeJoria] for a while. So he came up to see my dad and the guys that I race with, and that was it. It was the first time we met, and we just hit it off. He has never missed a race since."
“I can't even tell you -- we have so much in common," she adds. "We just click. I've never had that in a man before. I've never experienced that with anyone before him, so I knew it right away. He was definitely the one. It has been amazing… I think I wanted to marry him the first day.”
The couple, who each have children from previous relationships — Jesse’s children Chandler, Jesse Jr., and Sunny, and Alexis’ daughter, Bella — knew that they were meant to be when they saw just how well their families meshed together.
"Our daughters [Bella and Sunny] are the same age, and they just click. They are like two peas in a pod. It's the cutest thing ever," says Alexis of her Brady Bunch-style setup. "[Bella] has always wanted a sister...so it just worked out perfectly."
She says of their union, “It's just like marrying your best friend. It's perfect."
