David Blaine’s Daughter

David shares a daughter with his ex-fiancee, Alizee Guinochet. They named her Dessa Blaine, and she is gorgeous, just like her mother.

Blaine himself was surprised looking at his little one do the trick so beautifully at such a young age. She continues to surprise not only him but the entire audience. 

David was previously very private about his daughter and wanted to raise her privately without exposing her to the spotlight. However, he changed his mind when he saw what she was capable of. 

So, he introduced his daughter to the world in April 2020 on his show, ‘David Blain: The Magic Way,’ where she also performed a card trick.

Although now she has grown up, she hasn’t lost her love for magic. Dessa continues to surprise her audience with her talent. 

However, David is scared that she will follow his path as an illusionist and perform death-defying tricks. As a father, he says he won’t be able to see her do that. 

So, when Dessa was young, he told her, “Don’t do crazy things like Papa.” Well, any parent would shudder to watch their kids doing dangerous tricks. 

While he appears to be handling his parenthood pretty well as a doting father to his daughter, his love life, on the other hand, is a bit rocky.

David Blaine's Relationship History

Blaine was engaged to his ex-fiancee, Alizee Guinochet, a French model, in 2009. But, as it turns out, they weren’t dating for too long when they got engaged. 

The couple felt it was the right thing to do at the time and decided to make it official. After the engagement, Alizee got pregnant with their daughter, Dessa.

However, there have been speculations that it might be because of David’s infidelity. But, the clear and accurate reason remains under the covers. 

There’s no point in digging into the past as they both have moved on with their lives. Moreover, David and Alizee are peacefully co-parenting to raise their child, Dessa. 

Moreover, David is not known to have a girlfriend currently, so he probably falls under the list of eligible bachelors.
