Talented actress Keshia Knight Pulliam recently uploaded a cute photo of her 3-year-old lookalike daughter Ella Grace Hartwell riding a pony on her official Instagram account. 


For many fans of "The Cosby Show," it is hard to believe that little Rudy Huxtable (Keisha Knight Pulliam) is all grown up now and even a mother to a beautiful little princess.

Since becoming a mom more than three years ago, Pulliam has been quite open about her motherhood experience. However, she has kept her daughter's business private.

As little Ella Grace has grown, fans have become more accustomed to seeing more of her on Pulliam's social media. Recently, the mother of one shared a cute photo of her daughter who was riding a pony. 

In the picture, Ella looked gorgeous in her braided hairdo and wore a grey T-shirt with blue jeans and girly blue boots. While sharing the photo, Pulliam wrote in the caption:

"My fearless big girl…"


Pulliam is a proud single mom and dedicates much of her time to raising her beautiful daughter. The "The Cosby Show" alum incessantly dotes on her daughter and her Instagram page is brimming with images of the little tot. 

One of the most memorable pictures of Ella is a cute throwback photo in 2018. The picture featured baby Ella Grace wrapped nicely in a blanket while taking a nap.

Despite moving on with other partners, their marriage drama has lingered into 2020, with Pulliam suing the former professional football player.


In August 2016, Pulliam, 40, revealed she was expecting her first child with her estranged ex-husband, former NFL player Ed Hartwell. Shockingly, barely a few days after the announcement, Hartwell filed for divorce. 

Amidst the drama from her divorce, the 40-year-old actress welcomed her daughter in January 2017. She shared the news with a picture of her newborn daughter's feet and captioned it:

"Ella Grace has arrived!!!"


Pulliam later revealed that her marital crisis inspired her daughter's moniker, Grace. During a 2016 episode of her podcast, "Kandidly Keshia," the actress revealed her baby helped her get through the ordeal.

In 2018, Pulliam finalized her divorce from Hartwell but they remained in a legal tussle over child custody and how much child support she would be getting from him.

Despite moving on with other partners, their marriage drama has lingered into 2020, with Pulliam suing the former professional football player for unpaid child support.

The marriage between Pulliam and Hartwell took many people by surprise. Despite being separated for more than four years and sharing a beautiful daughter, they keep making the news for all the wrong reasons.
