Keshia Knight Pulliam recently posted a heartwarming photo of her adorable daughter Ella, who was sleeping by her side. Fans couldn't help gushing over the sweet mom and daughter duo.


Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam rose to fame as the cute Rudy Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," but now she has her own look-alike daughter, and the two make the cutest duo.

The actress shared a sweet photo of herself and her daughter, Ella Grace Hartwell, on her Instagram, and the toddler looked peaceful sleeping next to her resting mom.

In the snap, Pulliam was pictured laying down, with her head rested on a white pillow. The glowing mom had no makeup, flaunting her radiant natural skin. She captioned the photo:

"Lazy Sundays are the best!! People put so much emphasis on the hustle, they forget the power & necessity of restoration."

The actress' daughter, Ella, was pictured in a deep slumber with her arm spread across her mom's chest. She was dressed in a black and white checkered outfit with her natural hair taking the spotlight.


The sweet photo melted fans' hearts, who rushed to the comments section to express their admiration of the mom and daughter self-care moment.

One fan commented, "adorable your mini me," while another quipped, "Lil Rudy knocked out over there." A third fan wrote, "Keshia, such a great mother keep up the good work."


Pulliam welcomed her baby girl via C-section in January 2017. The actress said the Atlanta hospital where she gave birth was very professional, and the whole process was kept private for security reasons.

During an episode of her podcast, Kandidly Keshia, the actress revealed that her identity was kept so well-hidden that an elderly hospital worker mistook her for a poor woman.


Pulliam kept Ella to herself during the first months and seldom shared pictures of her baby's face, opting to show only some of her daughter's adorable features until she posted a throwback pic of baby Ella in June 2018.

The privacy came after the actress' relationship with Ella's dad, Edgerton Hartwell, ended on bad terms with the exes engaging in a bitter custody battle over their baby.


Pulliam found love again in 2019 with "For Better or Worse" actor Brad James after the two met on the set of "Pride and Prejudice" and instantly hit it off.

The sweet lovebirds recently celebrated James' 39th birthday with an intimate boat date where the loved-up couple spent some quality time alone on the water. In an Instagram tribute, The "House of Payne" actress declared her love for James.
