Keshia Knight Pulliam is a mom! The former The Cosby Show actress welcomed her daughter Ella Grace and posted the news on Monday.
She captioned a partial picture of her holding her daughter, saying, “Ella Grace has arrived!!!”
Keshia’s brother Mshon Pulliam was at the hospital to welcome his niece and posted a photo of himself with the new mom and his new niece in a hospital bed behind him. He captioned the pic: “In just 2 years I’ve become “Uncle MEshon” x3, and love every second of it. Welcome here Ella Grace, we’ve been waiting for you!!”
Keshia announced she was pregnant last year shortly before her estranged husband Ed Hartwell filed for divorce.
On Thanksgiving she said she had a lot to be thankful for despite all the drama with Ed:
“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,” Pulliam added. “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.”
