David Blaine’s Magic New York Snow Plow
David Blaine had to pull a little magic to get his fiancée to the hospital so that she could give birth to their daughter.
David Blaine, who is known for his elaborate illusions and amazing card tricks as well as some of his crazy stunts and feats of endurance, lives in New York with his fiancée Alizee Guinochet. The two were expecting their first child this week, but Mother Nature decided to make things a little interesting. On Wednesday New York was blasted with 19 inches of snow. The city was blanketed and came to a screeching halt. That same day Guinochet went into labor. Blaine went to the street to hail a cab, but none could be found. He called car services to have a car sent over for them, but with all of the snow there were no services that were willing to come to them. Blaine kept his cool and instead flagged down a snow plow that was working to clear the street.
David Blaine explained his situation to the snow plow driver who agreed to help. Blaine then loaded himself and Guinochet into the plow. The driver delivered them safe and sound to the hospital with plenty of time to spare. Guinochet, a 24 year old French model, stayed in labor the rest of the afternoon and much of the night. She gave birth to their baby girl sometime before the following morning.
A rep for the couple says that the both mom and baby are doing well. The couple has decided not to reveal the name of their daughter at this time.
