The Utah native, who was kidnapped by Wanda Barzee and Brian David Mitchell in 2002, made the exciting announcement on Monday that she welcomed a baby girl.

"So happy to welcome Olivia to our family!" Smart, 30, wrote while holding her little bundle of joy in her arms alongside her husband, Matthew Gilmour.

Smart and Gilmour share two other children, a daughter, Chloe, and son, James.

It's been a year of ups and downs for the kidnapping survivor. She took to social media to announce her pregnancy in June with a sweet photo of her sonogram.

But during her third trimester, Smart expressed her fears of her captor, Wanda Barzee's release from prison. Barzee, 72, was married to mastermind Brian David Mitchell. The two raped and tortured her for nine months while holding her captive in Utah and California.

According to documents obtained by Radar in September, Barzee was ordered not to contact Smart after her prison release.

On Monday, the happy mother of three had a giant smile on her face from her hospital bed. She included a bunch of red heart emojis to express her love for her new little one.
