For the first time since the news hit last week, illusionist David Blaine has confirmed that he and fiancée, Alizee Guinochet, 24, are expecting their first child together. He proudly proclaimed “Yeah!” to Us at Tuesday’s Iconoclasts 5th Season Launch Party at NYC’s Lavo.
The 37-year-old dad-to-be said that parenthood is a journey into the unknown. “I don’t know. It’s my first time so I have no idea,” he said. He also mentioned that he intends to teach his children the art of magic, “[But] I’m not going to force it on anybody…I love doing magic. That’s my favorite thing to do.”
One of Blaine’s most notable performances was when he stood in Times Square for 64 hours encased on a block of ice. One has to wonder if he will teach that trick to junior.
