Keshia Knight Pulliam and her baby girl are stealing hearts all over the internet with their latest mommy-daughter selfie, and Ella Grace’s pose is everything!
The “Cosby Show” alum took to Instagram yesterday with a mirror selfie of herself and daughter, Ella Grace Pulliam-Hartwell. Keshia donned a long red jacket over a black shirt and pants combo. She also wore dark brown booties and a hat with a lighter shade.
"By September of the same year, however, the former football player was back in court."
Ella Grace, on the other hand, rocked an all-black ensemble consisting of a jacket, tutu-like skirt, and leggings. Her curly hair was decorated with a red bow, and a pair of off-white shoes completed the look.
But despite Ella Grace’s impressive outfit, it was her fierce pose that had most Instagram users talking in the comments.
The adorable tot crossed her legs fashionably and threw her head back while wearing a mischievous grin.
“She’s gorgeous and serving us Fierceness,” commented one Instagram user while another quipped:
“I Luv Her personality!!! So Sassy!!”
Keshia, 39, welcomed her daughter on January 23, 2017, but it wasn’t until September last year that the actress revealed her face on social media.
Ella Grace is Keshia’s daughter with her ex-husband, former NFL player, Ed Hartwell. The exes tied the knot on New Year’s 2016, but only six months later, Ed filed for divorce. He also asked for a paternity test that eventually confirmed he was indeed the father of Keshia’s child.
Their messy marriage troubles played out publicly in the media, with the “House Of Payne” star accusing Ed of cheating on her while he claimed it was Keshia’s obsession with wanting a baby that tore them apart.
The former linebacker, who has an 11-year-old son from his previous marriage to “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” alum, Lisa Wu, told Page Six that Keshia was willing to do anything for a baby.
“She wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn’t have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby.”
Their divorce was finalized last April, and the actress was granted primary custody of their daughter.
Ed, who at the time was reportedly expecting another baby with the woman Keshia said he cheated on her with, was ordered to pay $3,007 per month in child support.
By September of the same year, however, the former football player was back in court, asking that his child support payment is reduced because his ex-wife does not work as much anymore to need a full-time nanny.
In all of these, however, Keshia seems to be most concerned with raising her “mini” and giving her the best life possible.
