American actress Keshia Knight Pulliam shared two pictures in a recent post on her Instagram page showing a moment many mothers can relate to.


One of the challenges parents face with working from home is being distracted by their kids. Many parents shared their experiences working from home on social media amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of these experiences were hilarious, to say the least, with children interrupting their parents during meetings and interviews. Recently, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam shared two adorable snapshots on her Instagram page, showing a moment many working-class mothers can relate with.

The pictures showed her seated at a table and working on her laptop. She wore a black dress and sat on a gray chair. However, the actress was not alone.

Her cute daughter, Ella Grace Hartwell, 4, needed motherly care and attention and did not mind sleeping on her mother's lap while she worked on her computer.


In the second snapshot, Pulliam gave the camera a knowing look as she posed while Ella slept peacefully on her lap. In the post's caption, the proud mom said the picture she shared depicted what "mom life" looks like on a Friday.

It was a priority for her beau to have a bond with her daughter.


She further revealed that she is always multitasking and asked her followers which of them could relate to the snaps. In the concluding part of her caption, Pulliam wrote:

"On another note... Excited to move on to the next chapter!!"


Pulliam shares Ella with her ex-husband and former NFL star Ed Hartwell, to whom she was married for only six months. She welcomed Ella in January 2017 after her and Ed's separation.

Pulliam shares a close bond with her adorable daughter and loves spending time with her. In a former interview, she was asked if Ella will follow in her footsteps and become an actress.


In her response to the question, Pulliam said Ella knows she is an actress and had asked if she could be the same when she grows up. The proud mom said she told her little tot that she would support her in whatever she wants to do.

"The Cosby Show" star also revealed that she told her daughter that she does not have to wait to be a grown-up before doing what she wants to do and she can start right away.


Pulliam is engaged to actor Brad James, who she has been dating since 2019. She announced their engagement via an Instagram post she made in December 2020.

The mother of one told Madamenoire that James and Ella love and adore each other. She added that it was a priority for her beau to have a bond with her daughter because their relationship would not work without that happening.
