Former child star Keshia Knight Pulliam's little girl Ella recently clocked a new age, and the star mom made sure to share a lovely tribute honoring the little girl.


Keshia Knight Pulliam's little daughter, Ella Grace, is growing older and turning into her mom's absolute twinnie. Her mother's latest Instagram post had fans gushing as she turned four and warmed the hearts of many on the timeline.

Pulliam put up a sweet photo of Ella, accompanied by heartfelt words commemorating her big day. The one-photo post showed the young one lounging at the pool and posing for the camera with a pleasing smile.

Ella stood inside the pool, which was knee-deep, showing off her brown mass of curly afro and rocking a stylish pink floater donned over her blue swimsuit. Pulliam sweetly wrote in her caption:

"Happy Birthday Ella Boo… my favorite girl in the whole wide world!! I can't believe my baby is 4!! Let's eat cake & play ALL day…"


While many admirers filled the comments with well-wishes and prayers for the celebrant, stars like Monyetta Shaw, her mom's lover, Brad James, and Sheinelle Jones also showed her some love.

James proposed to her with a custom-made diamond ring from Aydin Jewelers.


Pulliam welcomed her first child in 2017 and announced her birth with a mom-daughter image on Instagram. She announced her pregnancy a few months after her marriage to her ex-husband, Ed Hartwell, faltered.

Within the short span of their marriage and parenthood, Hartwell and Pulliam were constantly in the news because of the drama that ensued. After Ella's birth, Hartwell, a former NFL star, further aggravated the situation by demanding a paternity test.


Through the rocky times, Pulliam stayed positive, despite once confirming that it was the single most challenging time in her life. The star mom noted that having her daughter served as succor for her pain.

For a while now, Pulliam has had more reasons to be glad for the life she lives. As of 2019, the movie star let fans know she was back in the dating scene after introducing her lover, fellow actor James, on social media.

Last December, the lovely couple made headlines after James proposed to her with a custom-made diamond ring from Aydin Jewelers. James and Pulliam celebrated with her little daughter Ella, and according to her rep, the pair was happy to find their happy-ever-after.
