Elizabeth Smart, who was kidnapped from her Utah home at age 14 and then became an activist for missing children, gave birth to her first child in February.
The news was revealed by Elizabeth's father, Ed Smart.
"Elizabeth is great," Smart recently told EastIdahoNews.com. "She just had a little baby girl about three months ago. Chloe. We're just so excited."
He also said Elizabeth's daughter is his third grandchild and told The Salt Lake City Tribune that the media learning about Chloe three months after her birth could be "just what Elizabeth wanted," saying, "It is totally private. This is something she is keeping to herself and not trying to have out there."
Elizabeth, now 27, married Matthew Gilmour, a Scottish man she met while on a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints mission, in a small wedding ceremony at a Mormon temple in Hawaii in 2012. Ed's confirmation of Chloe's birth comes weeks after he shared a public post showing a picture of himself with a baby girl on social media.
