Back in the year 2011, Kym had adopted her son Joshua when she got an unexpected call from a hospital. The new mother had shared her experience with the and credited her parents for supporting her in the decision. She said:

“The woman on the phone said, We have a baby here for you, and I was like. What?! I didn’t order a baby. I just hadn’t stopped working long enough or found the right man and gotten married— or even realised the years had gone by so quickly. My parents encouraged me to take the leap of faith and become a mommy. Adopting Joshua was one of the best decisions I ever made.”

Well, from her given statement one can identify that Rodney Van Johnson is not the biological father of her son, Joshua but only a godfather. With so much of controversies, there were few followers who had started to believe Joshua to be the secretive son of Kym and Rodney.

Despite the fluctuations in her life, Kym managed to stick and work continuously towards her career which allowed her to gather the net worth of $2.5 million which would add an asset to her wealth as she is involved in movie project like the Fist Fight (2017).
