Keshia Knight Pulliam is officially a mommy!

The 37-year-old actress announced the birth of her baby girl, Ella Grace Hartwell, on Monday (Jan 23).

See her post below:


Last August, Keshia revealed how a dream and her divorce drama inspired her daughter’s name.

In the midst of all of this was when she earned her middle name, Grace.

When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us, and she’s been my saving grace to get through it — just knowing that it’s not about me.

I had a dream and she came to me … and referred to herself as Ella and not Elle.

Then I went to … a civil rights exhibit and one of the women who was at the forefront of the civil rights movement, who a lot of people don’t know about, her name was Ella.

Congratulations to the happy mommy on her new bundle of joy!
