David Copperfield is engaged!
The 57-year-old magician is engaged to 28-year-old French model Chloe Gosselin. The famed illusionist, who dated Chaudia Schiffer for six years back in the '90s, spoke with Hello! magazine Jan. 6, downplaying the former pair's high profile relationship.
"Oh, that was a long time ago," he said. "Now I'm engaged and in a committed relationship with Chloe in my mind and my heart."
Gosselin, who has a 3-year-old daughter named Sky with her fiance, is smitten as well. "I'm so lucky to have found David," she said. "There are very few people in the world like him. He's spent more than 30 years at the top of his profession. He's achieved some extraordinary things."
"People come up to him, tell him they admire him, that he's a role model for them-and he just smiles, because he's truly modest," she told Hello! "It's as if he doesn't realize how smart he is, the talent that he has."
The future spouses split their time between Las Vegas, New York and their own Caribbean hideaway known as Copperfield Bay. One of the archipelago's 11 islands was reportedly the venue for Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem's 2010 wedding.
