David Blaine & Alizee GuinochetFamed celebrity illusionist, magician, and endurance artist David Blaine really had to work some magic a few weeks ago when his fiance, French model Alizee Guinochet, went into labor during the January 23 blizzard in New York City. I'm sure Alizee freaked out a bit when she started feeling contractions just as 19 inches of snow dumped outside. Wouldn't you?
And then, go figure, her fiance and baby daddy -- as magical as he claims to be -- can't hail a taxi cab because there are NO TAXI CABS to be found in that weather.
Aren't you dying to know how it turned out for the expectant couple? After all, babies don't slow down for snowstorms.
Blaine avoided having to perform some endurance artistry of the baby birthing kind when he was able to hail the kind driver of a snow plow. The driver delivered the surely panic-stricken parents-to-be to the hospital, and a healthy baby girl arrived by morning. Wow, I bet that was a bumpy ride ...
Blaine's rep said: "Mom and baby are doing fine."
Congratulations to new parents David and Alizee! We hope your babymoon is far less adventurous than the laboring experience.
Are you expecting your baby during snow season? Do you have a snow travel plan?
