He first met Smart in Paris, while they were on a Mormon mission trip. During that time she was impressed by Gilmour; however, he didn't recognize her as the kidnapped victim from the headlines. He said in an interview,
''I got to know her as she truly is,''.
''The thing that attracted to me the most to her- at the beginning and now- is how confident she is, especially consedering everything she has been through.''
In early 2012, Gilmour popped the question with a sapphire engagement ring, on a hillside nearby her home.
As he recalled,
''I just said very simply, Elizabeth Ann Smart, will you marry me?' and then I wasn't nervous.''
Later in Feb 2012, Gilmour and Smart married in a secret ceremony on the north shore Oahu Hawaii. Since their marriage the couple is living a happy life and shares a child together, a daughter Chloe Gilmour( born Feb 2015).
