Keshia Knight Pulliam Welcomes First Baby—& Gives Her the Sweetest Name
Keshia Knight Pulliam is officially on diaper duty!
Not long after the 37-year-old actress gave birth to a baby girl, she shared the news on Instagram, giving fans a glimpse at her little one, whom she named Ella Grace.
"Ella Grace has arrived!!!," Pulliam captioned the snap, which showed her holding the tot's feet, which were covered up in furry, off-white socks.
This is the first child for the new mom, who has documented her pregnancy on social media. In a 3D sonogram she shared of her daughter on Instagram last November, Pulliam called the baby her "greatest accomplishment and joy". She added, "I am so proud she has chosen me to be her mommy... #Grateful."
This has been this single most challenging year of my life. However, I wake up this Thanksgiving more grateful & in awe of God's power than ever. Thru it all this little face has kept me going & helped me tap into strength I didn't even know I possess. I am so eternally grateful for my little Ella. I would not trade any of what I have gone thru for her. She is my greatest accomplishment & joy. She has inspired my smile even thru the tears. I am so proud she has chosen me to be her mommy... #Grateful #ThereIsAlwaysARainbowAfterTheStorm #IfICanDoItSoCanYou
Pulliam also revealed the name she had chosen for her baby in August on her 'Kandidly Keshia' podcast and chatted about how much she was looking forward to becoming a mom. "I am just so excited to meet her because she has some amazing things to do in this world," she said.
"I can't wait to just support her along her journey of becoming all that she is destined to be. 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."
