'The Challenge' contestant Kam Williams has two kids.

During her first season of The Challenge, 2018's Vendettas, Kam met The Real World: Las Vegas cast member Leroy Garrett. The two were inseparable throughout the season and eventually started dating.

Fast forward four years to April 2022, Kam and Leroy took a significant step forward in their journey by getting engaged. Just a month later, on May 17, their joy multiplied with the arrival of their first child together, a son named Kingston Lee.

"He completed our little family! Kingston is so perfect to us and I'm just obsessed with him, I never want to put him down. He is the perfect blend of us both," Kam told People at the time, revealing that she and her Leroy are "such a great team" as new parents.

Leroy echoed her sentiments, expressing, "Now that I became a father, all selfishness is out the window. It's us before me. One of my fears of having kids was not knowing how to take care of him, but since he got here, it's been like second nature."

Nearly two years later, on Feb. 24, 2024, Kam and Leroy welcomed their second child together, a daughter named Aria Lee Garrett.

"All signs pointed to 'Aria,'" the couple disclosed to People regarding their baby girl's name. "It was a name both of us found beautiful, and when we met her, we knew that the name was the perfect fit. Our family helped us narrow down the name out of three picks, and they all went with that name as well."

Kam praised Leroy's devotion to fatherhood, gushing, "He loves and adores the fact that we are now a family of four with two healthy and beautiful children. He was so happy for me because he knew how bad I wanted a girl!"

As they adjust to life as a family of four, Kam and Leroy are very excited to see the bond between their children flourish. Kam said, "I’m excited to live in each and every moment of watching my children grow, and looking forward to each and every stage that motherhood has to offer!"

Kam said she's proud to be a 'The Challenge' parent.

In late May 2024, Kam and Leroy sat down with Rolling Stone to chat about Season 4 of The Challenge: All Stars and their experiences as parents to two children under the age of two.

Reflecting on the chaos of their expanded family, Kam exclaimed, "Oh my gosh. We feel it since we've doubled our family. Because at first, when we came out to Houston, it was just us two. And we had one baby, and we're like, 'Okay, cool. We have the hang of this.' And now, doubling the amount of kids we have, there are not enough hours in a day. There's never enough time to get ready."

Leroy chimed in with a humorous quip, "What was sleep? What is sleep?"

During the filming of All Stars 4, their eldest child, Kingston, was only seven months old. Despite the difficulty of leaving him behind while she and Leroy traveled for the show, Kam expressed pride in being a Challenge parent due to their resilience.

"It's such a huge thing to be a Challenge parent and to leave kids back home. Usually, we’ve seen that from the outside looking in, but to actually be that is different. It's like, 'Wow, these Challenge parents, kudos to them, props to them.' They are way stronger than I could have ever thought or believed."
