LOS ANGELES, July 18 (UPI) — Keshia Knight Pulliam is going to be a first-time mom.
The 37-year-old actress announced she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Ed Hartwell in an Instagram post Sunday.
“Surprise!!! We have a new addition coming soon… Tune into #KandidlyKeshia this week for the details!” she captioned a photo of herself with a pink-frosted cupcake.
Pulliam’s friend Arian Simone shared a picture from the actress’ baby shower the same day. She also revealed Pulliam and Hartwell are expecting a baby girl.
“I knew today was special when I woke up! I thought I was going to Keshia’s for family dinner and to watch Power and was surprised with a baby reveal!” Simone wrote. “Congrats to @edhartwell @keshiaknightpulliam on your new addition! So excited! #itsagirl.”
Pulliam announced her marriage to Hartwell in January, less than a month after she and the former NFL player got engaged. Hartwell is already dad to 9-year-old Ed Jr. with ex-wife and former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Lisa Wu.
“We’ll probably end up being like Bruce Willis and Demi Moore in their situation, you know, how you blend [families],” Wu told Hip Hollywood prior to Pulliam’s pregnancy news. “My son is happy. He likes her, so that’s all that matters.”
