Keshia Knight Pulliam announced her marriage a couple of weeks ago, and what better way to share about her first few weeks as a married woman than with casual photos with her spouse on Instagram.

The famous "The Cosby Show" star met her then-husband-to-be Brad James while starring on "Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta." Their relationship was unexpected, given she was coming off of a divorce from NFL player Ed Hartwell.

LEARNING FROM HER DIVORCE

At the time, the actress believed that her post-divorce relationship was a blessing, as divorce can teach a person a lot about themselves. Speaking about the situation, she said:

" I feel like the big thing is that you become very clear about what you truly desire. You get clear about what you desire and you also get clear about what you will not accept."

HOW THEY BOTH MET

James and Pulliam first began dating after meeting on the set of the TV movie, "Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta." Speaking about the start of their relationship, Pulliam once said:

"Honestly we just hit it off. We had a lot of downtime; there was a lot going on filming that project. So there were times where we would all be sitting in the cast seats or the van just talking.”

TO THE NEXT LEVEL

By December 2020, the pair were engaged after the actor popped the question during an intimate celebration with their immediate family. The most important guest in attendance was the actress' daughter Ella.

Throughout the two years they've been together, James has openly accepted the role of being a father figure in Ella's life. In fact, he would honor her on special occasions on social media whenever he got the chance.

When the young girl turned four earlier this year, James shared an adorable photo of Ella wearing a tutu, gray tights, a blue jacket, and winter boots. His short but sweet caption expressed his love for her, saying: "Happy Birthday, Kiddo! Love you! #4"

Previously, Pulliam noted that James and her daughter get along well together and share a great bond. In fact, the two absolutely adored one another.

CELEBRATING A MAJOR MILESTONE

The Hollywood stars got married in an intimate ceremony at home just this month. Although they initially planned a large destination wedding, they decided to scale things down. Nonetheless, Pulliam described the ceremony as "whimsical, full of love, laughter, and joy."

Admittedly, the actress said that the COVID-19 pandemic had taught her and James to live in the moment. She then thanked all those who celebrated with them and wished them well.

During their wedding, Pulliam wore a gorgeous beaded dress with a plunging neckline that reached her abdomen. It featured sheer sleeves, and she held a gorgeous bouquet of white and pink roses in her hands.

Meanwhile, James wore a simple yet dapper black suit, which he paired with a maroon bowtie. As Pulliam shared, they looked nothing but happy as their officiant, Coach Shayla, presided over the ceremony.

ENJOYING MARRIED LIFE

Weeks after their wedding, the actress decided to share a glimpse of their married life with fans on Instagram. She leaned on her husband's stomach, sticking her tongue out at the camera while James looked on.

In the second photo, she decided to show off their comfortable getup, which included calf-high socks and sneakers for James and fluffy house slippers for Pulliam. They were seated out in their backyard, enjoying the outdoors in front of a fountain.

It's clear through Pulliam and James' Instagram that marriage life for them has been good. Although it's only been weeks, they are making the most out of their honeymoon phase, enjoying their time together even in the simplest ways.
