Keshia Knight Pulliam, Star of the “Cosby Show,” is expecting her second child
Keshia Knight Pulliam is expecting a child; oh, baby, baby! The “Cosby Show” actress said on Thursday that she and her husband, Brad James, were anticipating their first child’s birth early in 2019.
The actress, 43, jokingly titled a cute Instagram boomerang to the tune of Salt-N-1986 Pepa’s classic song “Push It!” “Baby James is coming 2023!! “she said. A pregnant Pulliam, already the mother of her daughter Ella, 5, is seen posing for a picture with James, 41, while sticking her foot out and placing her hand on her hip. She beamed as she grinned for the camera as a soon-to-be mother of two.
James, a fellow actor most known for his part in “Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse,” was decked out in a sleek suit for the video, which was shot at “The Tamron Hall Show,” and a floor-length knit outfit with horizontal red and purple stripes. The actress talked about why she and her partner, a minor for over a year, held off on announcing their pregnancy to the public during her visit to the show.
She told Hall, “I feel so good,” that their secret is now out. “Not that I’ve been trying to hide it, but when you’ve had a loss, when you’ve gone through this road, you want to just appreciate this moment and want to make sure that everything is OK,” she said. She co-parents with her ex-husband Edgerton “Ed” Hartwell, and Pulliam told her that their daughter is “so happy to be a big sister” that she “talks to the baby daily.”
In a devastating way, she added that Ella had been “through this journey, too,” about her miscarriage. “Mommy, will the infant be staying with us this time? Does it intend to remain? Ella is “so glad” to know “everything is going OK,” Pulliam recalls her young daughter asking, adding.
She said in the OWN documentary, which debuted in January, “Precisely the week that I was supposed to start my shots, COVID-19 hit, and I was unable to move forward with my egg retrieval, or just the whole process, because as you know you have to do the shots, the hormones, and all these different things.” But I had to begin taking my medications literally two to three days later.
The announcement of Keshia’s pregnancy comes a little over a year after she and Brad, who co-starred in the 2019 film Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta got married in September 2021. After exchanging vows in September 2021, the pair posted pictures from the private ceremony to their social media profiles. James sent a touching tribute to his wife and a carousel of photos from the couple’s special day.
He began his caption, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” “I’m glad to have yours with you.. my friend, my counsellor, my business partner, my travel companion, my co-parent, my trip adviser, my lover, my movie reviewer, my negotiator, my ride-not-die-er, my designated driver (even though I’m a better driver), my cook, my spiritual healer, and so many more.”
James continued, adding the hashtag “#TheJamesBond” to his post, as Pulliam had done. “I love you eternally, and gift you with my tribe and family who will guard and support you and our family by any means required,” he said.
