Kym Dating Someone: Thoughts On Dating
In June 2018, Kym did reveal that she was dating on the Steve TV Show. But, it turned out to be a joke as when Steve Harvey asked the cliche question, ‘Are you dating anybody right now?’ and her answer was,
Yes, Steve. I am dating someone. But he doesn’t know that that I’m dating him.
Although Kim hasn’t been involved in a romantic affair for so long, she has mentioned in many interviews that dating someone has become different for her.
Is Kym Whitley Married?
Now, the fact that American soap actor, Rodney Van Johnson took the role of being the fatherly figure for Joshua, it cooked some believable conjecture of him being married to Kym.

But the speculation only turned out to be useless as Rodney is married to wife, Carmen Obando, with two kids. And the reason why he wanted to be Joshua’s father is that he didn’t have a father in his life.
As she’s got a son now, she doesn’t want to tread on thin ice with short relationships because if her son came to like the person, she’s dating, and they broke up, it would be hard to explain the separation.
So, it's going to take some time before Kym finds her destined one and introduces him to her son as his father and Kym's future husband.
