It’s no illusion! World-famous magician David Copperfield is engaged to 28-year-old French model Chloe Gosselin. David, who is 29 years Chloe’s senior, shared the happy news with HELLO! magazine after discussing his high-profile romance with German model Claudia Schiffer in the 1990s.

“Oh, that was a long time ago,” David said of his former famous flame. “Now I’m engaged and in a committed relationship with Chloe in my mind and my heart.” David and Chloe met six years ago and have a three-year-old daughter named Sky together.

As for Chloe, she told Hello! her husband-to-be is truly one of a kind, calling him “truly modest” with no idea “how smart he is, the talent that he has.”

“There are very few people in the world like him,” she adds of David. “He’s spent more than 30 years at the top of his profession. He’s achieved some extraordinary things.”

One of which includes having his own Caribbean hideaway: an 11-island archipelago known as Copperfield Bay. Sounds like the perfect place to disappear or, you know, get married. At least, that’s what Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem did when they reportedly got hitched on one of David’s private islands back in July 2010. What a perfectly magical wedding location!
