Surprise! Elizabeth Smart is a mom!
The 27-year-old, who was famously kidnapped in 2002 and rescued nine months later, gave birth to baby daughter Chloe in February, her father, Ed Smart, told the Salt Lake Tribune.

This is the first child for Elizabeth and her husband Matthew Gilmour, whom she married in 2012. And although she's a well-known activist against underage sex trafficking, among other things, the blonde beauty has largely remained out of the spotlight, and would like to keep it that way for her daughter.
“It is totally private,” her father explained of life with her daughter. “This is something she is keeping to herself and not trying to have out there.”

Last year, the ABC News contributor revealed that her "greatest aspiration" was to become a mother. “[Matthew and I] will start having kids and see how I handle that and then go from there,” she told People magazine. “I don’t have a predetermined number in my head.”
Congratulations to the new parents!
