Congratulations to David Blaine
! According to the New York Post
newspaper, his fiancée Alizee Guinochet
went into labor in New York last Wednesday, and the illusionist couldn't hail a taxi because the city had been crippled by an extremely heavy snowstorm.
So when a snow plow run by a private contractor came around the corner, David flagged it down and the driver took the couple to a nearby hospital, where Alizee gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
The couple have not revealed any other details about their daughter but a spokesperson said: "Mom and baby are doing fine."
David and French model Alizee got engaged in 2009 after dating for less than a year.
A source close to them said: "They didn't date long, but they knew it was right. It was an instant attraction."
Although they are yet to announce a wedding date friends say they couldn’t be happier.
One pal revealed: "They could not be more in love."
