Keshia Knight Pulliam is in the midst of a tense divorce from her ex Ed Hartwell, but it sounds like she’s all about her pregnancy!
Looking at the silver lining, the preggers former child star revealed she’s already picked out her unborn baby girl’s name on her podcast, Kandidly Keisha, on Friday.
“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. I’m so excited about her. Her name is├óΓé¼┬ªElla Grace.”
Aww!! While it’s possible the Cosby Show star might very well change her mind before Ella’s arrival, she definitely has given the moniker a lot of thought.
And surprisingly, her dramatic divorce from the football star had a lot to do with it! Keshia shared:
“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. When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥she’s been my saving grace to get through it. It’s knowing that it’s not about me. Knowing that on days when I want to curl up in the bed, pull the covers over my head and cry until my eyes fall out, that is not an option because she feels everything I feel and right now, it is bigger than me├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥it’s about her. It is about her being ok.”
ICYMI: Hartwell filed for divorce from the actress only a week after she announced she was pregnant with their first child. He also demanded a paternity test be taken!
Luckily, the 37-year-old is clearly so excited for the arrival of her first child, she even gushed:
“I am just so excited to meet her because she has some amazing things to do in this world. I can’t wait to just support her along her journey of becoming all that she is destined to be. I know she’s going to be an amazing woman. She comes from a long lineage of strong, just wonderful women and I can’t wait to see all that she is going to accomplish and add to the legacy.”
Sounds like Keshia and Ella Grace are going to have an amazing life together, regardless of the outcome of her split!
