David Copperfield Shows HELLO! Around Caribbean Getaway and Introduces Fiancée Chloe Gosselin

Magic News is pleased to report that David Copperfield is getting married. He gave an exclusive interview and photo shoot to HELLO! magazine….

“Once famed for dating the world’s most beautiful women – he dated Claudia Schiffer for six years in the 1990s – he now plays all that down with an "Oh, that was a long time ago. Now I’m engaged and in a committed relationship with Chloe in my mind and my heart.”

And Chloe is clearly just as enamoured of her beau. “I’m so lucky to have found David,” she says. “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. It’s as if he doesn’t realise how smart he is, the talent that he has.”

Few are as dedicated to their art as David, who having grossed over $4 billion is the most successful solo entertainer in history.

‘On a Beam of Light: The Story of Albert Einstein’ is not magical in the sense that magic is the reason for this site. Instead, it is magical in it’s style, magical in it’s illustrations ( Vladimir Radunsky ), and magical in it’s ability to give us insight into the life of a man history may deem the most important of our lifetime.. and do so in a simplistic and entertaining way.

To quote Maria Popova’s story in BRAIN PICKINGS –  The story begins with Albert’s birth — a beautiful but odd baby boy who turns one and doesn’t say a word, turns two, then three, and nary a word. Instead, he “just looked around with his big curious eyes,” wondering about the world. His parents worried that there might be something wrong, but loved him unconditionally. And then:  

“One day, when Albert was sick in bed, his father brought him a compass — a small round case with a magnetic needle inside. No matter which way Albert turned the compass, the needle always pointed north, as if held by an invisible hand. Albert was so amazed his body trembled.

Suddenly, he knew there were mysteries in the world — hidden and silent, unknown and unseen. He wanted, more than anything, to understand those mysteries…”
