Keshia Knight Pulliam is her own biggest fan and opens up about body positivity while sharing an unfiltered photo of herself via social media. The actress, who has been through so much heartbreak, is now unapologetic about loving herself.


Knight Pulliam has been in the public eye since childhood, so she’s probably familiar with the temptation to filter every public appearance and only show off your glamorous side.

In a recent picture posted to Instagram, however, the “Cosby Show” alum proves she’s not about that life by owning her imperfections while promoting a weight loss company.

Knight Pulliam, 40, shared side-by-side snapshots of herself in a white sports bra and grey Nike leggings. She appeared to be posing before a mirror in her living room.


“P.S. I may not have a big booty, but it’s MINE!!” the actress said of the shots, adding:

“This body grew & birthed a whole healthy human. I am a work in progress just like everyone else. I’m proud of the skin I’m in. I am a priceless original & so are you. I will celebrate & love me every day!! No photoshop or filter here.”


Knight Pulliam’s declaration of self-love comes after some pretty rough times. In 2016, six months after her wedding and about a week after announcing she was pregnant, her then-husband filed for divorce.

Knight Pulliam married former NFL player Ed Hartwell on New Year’s Day 2016, but she couldn’t have imagined that they wouldn’t be together by the end of that same year.


What followed was a vicious back-and-forth of infidelity accusations, paternity test requests, and what have you. It was amid this unpleasant situation that Knight Pulliam welcomed her daughter, Ella Grace, in January 2017.

The doting mom announced her daughter’s birth via Instagram and would share glimpses of the little one over the next couple of months. It wasn’t until September 2018, however, that she fully revealed Ella’s cute face and fans have been in love ever since.


Knight Pulliam has had to endure a messy divorce and custody battle with Hartwell, who has reportedly married and welcomed another daughter with the woman he allegedly cheated on Knight Pulliam with.

Hartwell and the actress’s divorce was finalized in April 2018. Knight Pulliam was granted custody of Ella and $3,007 in monthly child support while her ex got visitation rights.

Knight Pulliam also seems to be in a better place romantically as she’s moved on to dating “For Better or Worse” actor Brad James. The two began showing off their relationship a few months ago.

There’s no denying that Knight Pulliam has been through a lot and come out stronger. The confidence she exudes comes from one who has discovered her strengths and is not afraid to embrace her imperfections.
