The 21st century has not been kind to celebrity relationships. If anybody thought that the new century would bring wisdom to people and result in better relationships they are wrong. In the hustle and bustle of today’s frenetic career-oriented lives relationships are fast becoming a liability as people struggle to find the soul mate they have all dreamed and aspired for. One such celebrity relationship which is going south by the day is the increasingly embattled relationship between actress Keshia Knight Pulliam and her ex-husband retired National League Football player Edgerton Hartwell. Edgerton Hartwell is popularly known as Ed Hartwell and he has been in the news because he has refused to accept that he is the baby daddy of Keshia’s daughter.
The Girl is a Little Bit Familiar
Some of you must be wondering who Keshia Knight Pulliam is and why is her name so familiar? That’s because she has appeared in several of TV’s most-watched shows in the last three decades. She is most famous for her role as Rudy Huxtable in the NBC sitcom The Cosby Show that ran from 1984 to 1992 and her role Miranda Lucas-Payne in the TBS comedy-drama Tyler Perry’s House of Pain from 2007 to present. Unlike many actresses, Keshia Knight is college-educated and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Spelman College in the year 2001.

Then Cupid struck. In 2015 Knight became engaged to Ed Hartwell and then on January 1, 2016, they got married in her Atlanta home. Out of the blue Hartwell filed for divorce on July 25, 2016, and the honeymoon turned into a nightmare. Knight gave birth to a baby girl on January 23, 2017, and named her Ella Grace Hartwell-Pulliam and the wrangling began. The couple’s acrimonious marriage was declared void in April 2018 and the divorce was finalized.
Hartwell Denies Paternity
A big shock awaited Knight when ex-hubby Hartwell refused to admit that he was the father of baby Ella Grace. It was only after a paternity test was conducted which proved that Hartwell was indeed the baby daddy of Ella Grace that he admitted that he was her father. Even though the fatherhood issue was settled in Knight’s favor she was shaken by the whole string of events. Imagine having a broken marriage within a year of marriage and then the father of the baby refusing to stand up and accept his responsibilities as the father of their baby girl.
Back to the Future
Now it’s 2020 and people are curious about Knight and the new man in her life. Some of them are asking if Keshia Knight Pulliam is pregnant again. Well, according to inside sources she is not pregnant and at present has only one child the 2-year old daughter Ella Grace. However, Knight has admitted that she has a new partner in her life and his name is Brad James. Brad James is from Georgia and was in the US Marines for four years before he left the military and became an actor. He is 38-years old and is known to perform his stunts in the shows that he has appeared in like Osiris, Superstition, Devious Maid, and When It Comes Around.

Knight’s relationship with James started when both of them acted in a TV film together. Keshia Knight’s Lifetime movie Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta also starred Brad James and that’s when their relationship blossomed. Now their fans want both the lovebirds to appear in more shows together but whether that does happen remains to be seen. What is confirmed is that both Knight and James are crazy about each other and they often post messages and affectionate pictures of themselves together on their social media accounts. We wish that Knight is lucky in love this time and the three of them including baby Ella Grace have a blast living and loving each other!
