He started teaching ‘The Art of Magic’ at the New York University when he was only 16. In 1977, he was already a cast in the TV magic special titled The Magic of ABC. Interestingly, the first show amassed popularity and opened the pathway for Copperfield to feature in other TV shows.

Is David Copperfield Married?
Copperfield is a committed man but has never been married.
In the past, he suffered a failed engagement. Back in 1993, Copperfield was in a relationship with supermodel Claudia Schiffer.
The pair had first met at a Berlin celebrity Gala and fell in love with each other. Just after a year of dating, in January 1994, the duo got engaged. Schiffer timely appeared in his show and became part of his tricks.
However, instead of taking their relationship to marriage after remaining engaged for six years, the pair parted in 1999.
Afterward, Copperfield was not linked with any woman until he found Chloe Gosselin, with whom he is not yet married but shares a daughter.

The pair, without marriage, welcomed their daughter named Sky in 2010. Later in 2014, the duo got engaged and fortified their relationship.
However, the pair have kept most of their family details under the wraps. They are also yet to publicize the pictures of their 8-year-old daughter.
But so far, Copperfield has been spending quality time with his possible wife-to-be and family. He attends various events and goes on vacations with her.
The magician even doesn't miss out on celebrating special occasions with his long-time partner. For instance, he posted a birthday post for Gosselin on August 23, 2019, on Instagram.
"Happy Birthday Chloe...You make my dreams come true," he wrote in the caption.
Going by those details, it appears that Copperfield and Gosselin are in no hurry to quote each other as husband and wife and welcome more children.
