After living an unimaginable nightmare, Jaycee Dugard is hoping to meet her Prince Charming and settle down.
Jaycee Dugard still believes in fairy tales. Isn’t that amazing? After being held captive for 18 years by Phillip and Nancy Garrido, Jaycee was finally freed last year and has been trying to live a normal life with the two daughters she was forced to bear for her captor. And now she’s hoping to find her “happily ever after.” According to the National Enquirer, the 30-year-old is hoping to meet Mr. Right and get married. “Jaycee wants to live the American dream and find a loving, gentle man to share her future — thoughts she couldn’t imagine while in captivity,” says a publishing source familiar with Jaycee’s untitled book. “She wants a storybook wedding, a long white wedding dress, a handsome prince of a husband and some pet cats.”
When she was just 11 years old, Jaycee was kidnapped and held captive against her will by the convicted sex offender, 59, and his wife, 55. To help deal with her painful past, Jaycee wrote a journal and documented her thoughts and hopes for her future, which will be revealed in her new book. “Jaycee wants the best that life has to offer, including a loving husband to who she can devote her life,” says the source.
Jaycee is the mother of two children, fathered by Garrido, Angel, 16, and Starlit, 12, who are very supportive of her memoir. “Jaycee expressed all her fears and anxieties in her journal — never believing that she and her daughters would ever be freed,” explains the insider. “Her daughters, who believed she was their sister, supported her writing. Jaycee found her voice in the pages of that journal, and her therapist encouraged her to continue it as part of the healing process.”
But while reflecting on her painful experience, Jaycee realized that all she wants is to find a future with a man who truly loves her and her girls. “She’s dreaming of a big, traditional wedding with Angel and Starlit as bridesmaids, lots of guests, a big cake and a fun reception with a band.” And there is no one else who deserves a happy future more than Jaycee. Don’t we all wish that for her?
“Jaycee has now healed enough to believe that there is a man out there who will love her unconditionally and will help her deal with her past,” says the source. And we agree. Jaycee deserves happiness and should be able to live the life she has always dreamed of.
