But, the good news is that Kim was able to have not only Chicago with the help of a gestational carrier, but also went on to have her youngest child, Psalm, that way. No matter how you welcome a child, that child is a blessing. Ricky and Kim are just two of the growing list of celebrities to grow their families with the help of a surrogate. See for yourself.
