Hannah Neeleman is a 33-year-old mother of seven who was crowned Mrs. American on Aug. 25 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Hannah and her husband, Daniel, run their own farm in Kamas, Utah, called “Ballerina Farms,” where they sell farm-grown meat and kitchen supplies.
Neeleman, who represented South Dakota in the pageant despite being a Utah native, has received praise across the country for her powerful pro-life response during an onstage question.
A judge asked her: “When have you felt the most empowered?”
She responded: “I have felt this feeling seven times now as I bring these sacred souls to the earth. After I hold that newborn baby in my arms, the feeling of motherhood and bringing them to the earth is the most empowering feeling I have ever felt.”
