Keshia Knight Pulliam is officially a mother of a healthy baby girl.
The actress and her estranged husband, Ed Hartwell, welcomed their first child together on Monday. The Cosby Show star confirmed the news on Instagram with the caption: “Ella Grace has arrived!!!”
Back in August, Knight revealed during an episode of Play.it podcast Kandidly Keshia where the name Ella Graces came from. “I was back and forth on if I wanted to share this or not, but I decided that I would because it is so hard for me to keep it in,” Knight said.
Pulliam explained to her fans that the baby’s middle name, Grace, was inspired by the recent events that took place between she and her estranged husband. To refresh your memory, he served Pulliam with divorce papers, suggested the baby wasn’t his and according to Keshia, was a serial cheater.
“I knew Ella was going to be my first baby girl’s first name. Then in the midst of all of this is when she’s earned her middle name, Grace,” Keshia revealed. “When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us—she’s been my saving grace to get through it.”
Congrats to the former couple.
