Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband, Jesse James might have found himself ‘the one’ out of his new wife, Alexis DeJoria.
A car racer, DeJoria said upon meeting her now husband, she knew he was the 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,” she explained to US Weekly. “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.”
She goes on to add saying, “I can’t even tell you — we have so much in common. 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.”
About her decision to marry him, she said, “I think I wanted to marry him the first day,” she says, laughing. “It’s just like marrying your best friend. It’s perfect.” The two allegedly got married in Malibu on March 24.
DeJoria has a 10-year-old daughter, Bella, from a former relationship and she has also accepted Jesse. He has three children from previous marriages: daughter Chandler and son Jesse Jr. with first wife Karla James, and daughter Sunny with second wife Janine Lindemulder.
“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,” DeJoria said. “[Bella] has always wanted a sister…so it just worked out perfectly.”
DeJoria has been racing for almost a decade, but she’s in just her second year as a professional. “I was definitely the wild child of the family, just kind of the thrill-seeker, which definitely came from my dad,” she explains to Us of how she got into the sport. “My dad raised his kids to be very confident, strong individuals and always work for things that we’re passionate about. I’m going to be a go-getter. I’m going to experience life and enjoy it to the fullest. That’s the way my father raised his kids to be, and that’s the way I’m going to raise my child.”
