June 5 marks 13 years since Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped in Utah and held against her will for nine months. But in the time since, the now 27-year-old has been able to move on. 

In February 2012 she married her longtime love Matthew Gilmour, and now according to her dad, Ed Smart, Elizabeth has welcomed a new addition — a baby girl named Chloe

"Elizabeth is great, she just had a little baby girl three months ago," Ed told EastIdahoNews.com of his new granddaughter. 

Ed currently works to help end sex trafficking, and hopes to help other children avoid the fate his daughter was subjected to. 

"We want all of those people who have been victimized out there to be survivors, to be thrivers, to find their dreams, to find that new hope in life," he told the site.
