David Copperfield's been holding on to baby news for over 16 months now. Finally, word is out the illusionist and girlfriend Chloe Gosselin are parents!

A rep for the 54-year-old has just now confirmed news that the couple welcomed a baby girl back in spring 2010. The Daily Mail reports the baby's name is Sky, and was first spotted out with her parents traveling between New York, the Bahamas and Las Vegas last month.

David Copperfield's rep, apparently quick with humor, confirmed the news by saying, "Forget vanishing the Statue of Liberty, David's next illusion will be disappearing the dirty diaper. A lot more practical."


Chloe Gosselin, pictured here with her baby-daddy at the Gnomeo & Juliet premiere in Januray 2011, is a 26-year-old French model. David's most high-profile relationship was with supermodel Claudi Schiffer in the '90s. The pair were engaged for six years but parted ways in 1999 citing work schedules as the reason for their split.

SheKnows has reached out to reps for David Copperfield for additional information on baby Sky.

Belated but heartfelt congratulatory wishes go out to the new parents!
