This is when Rachel and Sam’s other sister Nikkita stepped in.
The sisters decided that Nikkita would donate eggs and Rachel would be the surrogate to bring Sam and Ben their baby!

Last night, little baby Starla was introduced to Karl Stefanovic and the rest of Australia on This Time Next Year and we COULD NOT COPE!
