Congratulations to actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who welcomed her first child, a baby girl, this week. The former Cosby Show star announced the baby news on Instagram, revealing the baby’s name: Ella Grace.
While Keshia announced her pregnancy on Instagram in July, just days later her husband, Ed Hartwell, filed for divorce and requested a paternity test.
In November she shared an ultrasound pic with a touching message, writing: “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.”
