The former Bill Cosby show star recently posted the first picture of her daughter on social media. The adorable photo shows the beautiful child wearing a heartwarming smile that will melt your heart.


Keshia Knight-Pulliam has stolen the hearts of many with a recently shared picture of her daughter, Ella Grace Hartwell on Instagram. Ella was born to Keshia and her ex-husband, Ed Hartwell in January of 2017.


Since her daughter’s birth, Keshia has hardly shared images of the little charmer; the few she shared showing just her legs or her head while she was being fed. However, with her second birthday on the horizon, mama felt it was finally time to reveal her one true love.

The former “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” star captioned the image “Love.” The image shows her smiling at her daughter who looks at the camera with an adorable smile. The tot very much looks like her mother and it can be said that they are twins. Laughs.


Keshia’s divorce with ex-husband and former NFL player, Ed Hartwell is one of the reasons she did share so many pictures of her daughter. The ex-couple got married in on the first day of the year 2016 but fell apart in July of the same year when Ed filed for divorce.

He had claimed there were irreconcilable differences caused by her desire for a child soon after their marriage while Keshia accused him of cheating on her. After discovering she was pregnant, Ed requested a DNA test to confirm that the child was indeed his.

The case was finally settled with Keshia getting primary custody of her child and $3,007 per month in child support from Ed. The separated couple had to agree for Ella to share each of their last names, hence, Ella Grace Pulliam-Hartwell.

With all things settled, the divorce was granted on the grounds of adultery and cruel treatment. Not long after the divorce, Ed Hartwell married Tonya Caroll, who he is alleged to have begun dating when his marriage to Keshia took a wrong turn.

Tonya and Ed already have a child, Sevyne Elise, who was born soon after Ed and Keshia’s divorce. Keshia took to Instagram to post a cryptic picture which read, “Every girl deserves a guy that can make her heart forget that it was ever broken.”


Many who reacted to the post agreed with her, while some suggested she may still have feelings for her ex-husband. After all, said and done, it is happy news to get to see the beautiful and adorable Ella finally; such beauty shouldn’t be hidden for long.
