In 2002, Smart was kidnapped and held captive by Brian David Mitchell when she was just 14-years-old. The teenager was then rescued when a couple spotted her on a busy Utah street. Her kidnapper was later sentenced to life in prison.

Since the abduction, Smart has become an outspoken activist and told PEOPLE in 2014 that her "greatest aspiration" was to be a mom.

"My mom is a hero and has influenced my life more than any other person, and I'd like to have that same influence on my children," she said.
