Jaycee Dugard is the cover girl for the upcoming issue of People magazine, in which she discusses her new life.
“I’m so happy to be back with my family,” Dugard, 29, now a surprisingly fresh-faced brunette, told the magazine.
Dugard, currently living at an undisclosed location with her mother and daughters, told the magazine she is slowly readjusting to everyday life. Dugard said she is into riding horses, cooking and might even write a book.
Jaycee was snatched at age 11, allegedly by Phillip Garrido and his wife as she waited at a bus stop in South Lake Tahoe, California in 1991. The alleged sexual abuse by Garrido began almost immediately, and she subsequently gave birth to her daughters in the backyard prison. Garrido is in custody on suspicion of various kidnapping and sex charges. His wife, Nancy Garrido, 54, is also in custody on kidnapping charges.
The issue hits newsstands Wednesday.
