Keshia Knight Pulliam On Her Daughter’s Name

On her latest “Kandidly Keshia” podcast, Keshia Knight Pulliam announced she plans to name her baby girl, Ella Grace.

Talking through tears, the 37-year-old actress went on to explain how a dream and all of the divorce drama she’s endured with inspired her unborn 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.

Keshia had planned on naming her baby girl Elle, but says clear signs showed her she was close, but that wasn’t the perfect name.

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.

I’m happy to see Keshia is keeping her focus on her baby girl.

Ella Grace is expected to arrive in January.
