Smart announced on Instagram in October 2016 that she was expecting a second bundle of joy. "Happy Halloween! Working on adding another skeleton to our little clan. #babynumber2 #dueinapril," she captioned a photo of herself, Gilmour and Chloe trick-or-treating in matching skeleton costumes.

A month later, the child safety activist shared an ultrasound on Instagram to reveal the sex of her baby. "Excited to announce we're having a boy! #itsaboy #aprilbaby," she gushed.

Smart made headlines around the world when she was abducted from her family's home in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the age of 14 in June 2002. She was held captive by Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee, for nine months until she was rescued by police in March 2003 after being spotted on a street in Sandy, Utah.

Smart has since lived a relatively quiet life. She studied music performance at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, wrote a memoir titled My Story and continues to work as an advocate for victims of abuse. She married Gilmour in February 2012.
