Elizabeth Smart: Engaged!

by at . Comments

Elizabeth Smart, who was kidnapped by Brian David Mitchell from her home in 2002 at age 14, only to be found nine months later, is engaged, her father Ed confirms.

"We're very excited for her," Ed said Friday. "She told us at home last Saturday."

"I wasn't really surprised. They've been so happy together. We're thrilled. We're looking forward to her moving on to this next stage and leading a very happy life."

Ed, who is staying mum on wedding details, including the groom’s name, says Elizabeth "wants to keep it very private and feels very strongly about that right now."

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that wedding registries at Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn list an July 1 wedding date for Elizabeth Smart and Matthew Gilmour.

So, that's probably his name.

Chris Thomas, a rep for Elizabeth, says he can't confirm the wedding date or the name of Smart's fiancé, but says, "I know they're looking at a summer wedding."

"There are a lot of details to still be worked out. She's very public in her child advocacy work, but has decided she wants to keep her personal life private."

Congratulations to Elizabeth, her fiance and her family!
