Deadmau5 and Kat Von D have got engaged.

The Canadian DJ proposed to the tattoo artist - who he split from in November after a two-month romance - on Twitter on Saturday and the brunette beauty said yes.

Deadmau5 - whose real name is Joel Zimmerman - tweeted: “I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?”

The tweet was accompanied by a picture of a diamond ring flanked by two skulls, with text on the image explaining that the musician planned to get the stone switched.

He wrote: “Changing the diamond for a black diamond FYI. Sorry for the jpg... they'll finish the actual ring soon I hope. I love you. (sic)”

Kat replied with a series of exclamation marks, prompting her new fiance to write: “Holy f***ing s**t. im engaged and stuff! (sic).”

Kat - who was previously engaged to Sandra Bullock's ex-husband Jesse James - and Deadmau5 then thanked fans for their well-wishes.

Kat wrote: “Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations. Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiance!”

Deadmau5 added: “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 :) (sic)” - BANG Showbiz
