Keshia Knight-Pulliam showcases her childhood bond with her younger brother as she greets him a happy birthday with a throwback post. The actress who played Rudy in the ‘The Cosby Show’ around the time the snap was taken gushed over her “partner in crime” in her caption.
Keshia Knight-Pulliam is a doting big sister in her recent post where she shares a throwback photo with her younger brother while greeting him a happy birthday.
Clearly in love with her sibling in the adorable photo from their childhood where Keshia and her brother are wearing colorful toy eyeglasses, Keshia went on to reveal they were “partners in crime since birth” in her caption.
“I could not let the day go by with out wishing my little big brother @pulliaminc Happy Birthday!!!! We have been partners in crime since birth. I love you.”
Around the time the throwback snap was taken, Keshia was probably already dipping her feet in Hollywood playing her famous role as youngest daughter Rudy in the popular sitcom ‘The Cosby Show.’ She was only five when she began her career in the show and grew up in the eyes of its audience until the show wrapped in 1992 when she was 13. Since then, Keshia moved on to another TV role playing Miranda in ‘Tyler Perry’s House of Payne’ from 2007-2012.
Keshia was married to Ed Hartwell after a four-month whirlwind romance that culminated in an engagement on New Year’s Eve 2015 and a wedding in Atlanta the following day. That same year in June, Hartwell surprised her when he filed for divorce just when the couple revealed they were expecting a child, daughter Ella Grace who was born in January 2017.
The actress’ divorce from Hartwell was a bitter battle that was just finalized in April. The couple fought over their daughter’s custody which was eventually awarded in full to Keshia. Her ex-husband got visitation rights along with a requirement to pay Keshia over $3,000 a month in child support. There was also a battle over their child’s name, each insisting Ella Grace carried their last name. Arriving at a compromise, the ex-spouses agreed Ella would carry both last names with a hyphen.
