David Copperfield has conjured up a fiancée!

He and French model-designer Chloe Gosselin have been engaged for a while now, the illusionist revealed in a recent magazine interview.

"I'm engaged and in a committed relationship with Chloe in my mind and my heart," Copperfield told Hello!, after being nudged about his reputation for dating the world's most beautiful women back in the 1990s.

That era, which included six years with Claudia Schiffer, was "a long time ago," he said.

Gosselin, 28, who met Copperfield, 57, six years ago, is the mother of their 3-year-old daughter, Sky.

The magician is the most successful solo performer of all time, the mag said, having grossed more than $4 billion. And yes, he does have his own island. Eleven of them, as a matter of fact, in a Caribbean archipelago known as Copperfield Bay, which is where the couple live.

And it sounds like a pretty swell joint.

"Because of my work I have the privilege of living in extraordinary places around the world," he said, "and I wanted to re-create the details of those experiences here — from the water pressure in the shower to the thread count in the towels."

Must be magical.
