Elizabeth Smart: Becoming a Mom Has Been the Best Thing Ever


MR says: We are so happy for Elizabeth Smart, who is now living out her greatest aspiration to be a mother.

Thirteen years after enduring a horrific kidnapping ordeal, Elizabeth Smart has overshadowed that dark memory with the joy of becoming a mother.

In a speech in Oklahoma City last week, Smart 28, called the birth of her nine-month-old daughter, Chloe, "the best thing ever" while reflecting on what she learned from her 2002 kidnapping and how motherhood has changed her life.
