First-time mom-to-be Keshia Knight-Pulliam used Thanksgiving to share with her Instagram followers the lessons she’s learned from the roller coaster year she has had.
The star, best known for her role as the character “Rudy Huxtable” on the 1980s comedy “The Cosby Show”, used the occasion to share a sonogram of her soon-to-be-born daughter, she has decided to name Ella Grace. She captioned the 3D image with a heartfelt message.
“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,” she wrote.
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
The actress also casually dropped the fact that she has been one of the few women fortunate to not have gotten stretch marks while pregnant…yet.
Hold on, girl. They appear during that last month but hopefully she can stave them off for the entire pregnancy. My mom had four children and has zero stretch marks on her belly! Lucky!
A little over a month ago, members of her Kamp Kizzy surprised her with a baby shower
My Kamp Kizzy babies completely surprised me with a beautiful shower to celebrate Ella Grace today!! I am so grateful & appreciative of all of their hard work. My heart is full. Ella has so much love… she is going to grow up wondering why everyone doesn’t have 72 aunties & uncles, 60 cousins & more sisters than she can count!! Lol!! I love you all so very much… Ella & I are the world’s luckiest girls to have all of you. You are my first babies & I am so proud that Ella will have so many amazing role models to look up to. #I❤️YouToTheMoonAndBack #KampKizzy #Grateful #YouGuysAlwaysMakeMeCry
And earlier, she was gifted with a bunch of stuff from Marquee Communications which represents a bunch of baby and pregnancy related brands! Nice
