Criss Angel, the American magician and Las Vegas illusionist, is set to marry his girlfriend Sandra Gonzalez. The couple got engaged in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on 7th September 2011, according to People Magazine.
Angel first met Gonzalez four years ago while filming his A&E series 'Mindfreak'. A source close to the couple claims the illusionist surprised Sandra with a 5-carat diamond and platinum ring he designed himself, with the help of jeweller Idayne Kaye. A representative for Criss simply said, "The couple is ecstatic", while revealing the magician had flown in Sandra's family for the engagement - they arrived shortly after he had popped the question while fireworks went off overheard. It is understood no wedding date has been set, and Angel is currently busy performing in Cirque du Soliel's show BeLIEve. The marriage will be the illusionist's second - his first ended in 2006. He once dated the American model and Playboy star Holly Madison.
Criss Angel's many illusions have included walking on water, levitating, and walking up the side of the Luxor Hotel on the Las Vegas strip. During season three of 'Mindfreak', Criss injured himself after jumping out of moving car.
