Youngest Huxtable child Rudy from “The Cosby Show,” Keshia Knight Pulliam has welcomed a daughter named Ella Grace on Monday, January 23. Actress, who was going through a difficult time, seems to be happy with the birth of her first baby.
Keshia announced the news about the birth of Ella on Monday via Instagram. The thirty-seven-year-old actress shared an image where she flaunted her daughter’s feet wearing fuzzy socks which she captioned-
“Ella Grace has arrived!!!”
Keshia, who was married to NFL pro-Edgerton Hartwell announced her pregnancy in July last year. She announced that she was expecting a baby with her hubby by sharing an image on her Instagram account where she wrote -
“Surprise!!! We have a new addition coming soon… Tune into #KandidlyKeshia this week for the details!!”
But soon after she revealed her pregnancy, her husband of six months Edgerton Hartwell filed a divorce in Georgia’s Fulton County Superior Court citing “irreconcilable differences.” Thinking that the baby wasn’t his, he demanded a paternity test from the child star. Keshia and Ed engaged on New Year’s Eve and tied the knot in January last year.
It seems that little Ella was her strength throughout her difficult time. But despite the depressing divorce, she was positive about her pregnancy and focused on the well-being of Ella. On November 24, the actress shared a sonogram of her baby girl with a heartfelt thankful message.
This has been this single most challenging year of my life. However, I wake up this Thanksgiving more grateful & in awe of God's power than ever. Thru it all this little face has kept me going & helped me tap into strength I didn't even know I possess. I am so eternally grateful for my little Ella. I would not trade any of what I have gone thru for her. She is my greatest accomplishment & joy. She has inspired my smile even thru the tears. I am so proud she has chosen me to be her mommy... #Grateful #ThereIsAlwaysARainbowAfterTheStorm #IfICanDoItSoCanYou
Congratulations Keshia for welcoming such a beautiful daughter!#American actress #Edgerton Hartwell
