Keshia Knight Pullliam has revealed the name of her baby girl and according to the star, she has the nasty divorce between she and Ed Hartwell to thank.
“I was back and forth on if I wanted to share this or not, but I decided that I would because it is so hard for me to keep it in,” Keshia said on Friday during an episode of the Play.it podcast Kandidly Keshia. “I’m so excited about her. Her name is … Ella Grace.”
Pulliam explained to her fans that the baby’s middle name, Grace, was inspired by the recent events that took place between she and her estranged husband. To refresh your memory, he served Pulliam with divorce papers, suggested the baby wasn’t his and according to Keshia, was a serial cheater.
“I knew Ella was going to be my first baby girl’s first name. Then in the midst of all of this is when she’s earned her middle name, Grace,” Keshia revealed. “When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us—she’s been my saving grace to get through it.”
The Cosby Show star continued, “It’s knowing that it’s not about me. Knowing that on days when I want to curl up in the bed, pull the covers over my head and cry until my eyes fall out, that is not an option because she feels everything I feel and right now, it is bigger than me—it’s about her. It is about her being OK.”
Keshia added how thrilled she is to be a mom. “I am just so excited to meet her because she has some amazing things to do in this world. I can’t wait to just support her along her journey of becoming all that she is destined to be,” she said. “I know she’s going to be an amazing woman. She comes from a long lineage of strong, just wonderful women and I can’t wait to see all that she is going to accomplish and add to the legacy.”
The 37-year-old confirmed that she was expecting last month.
