Awww, Rudy and Theo Huxtable Became First-Time Parents This Year

Man, can you believe Theo and Rudy Huxtable both became parents for the first time this year?

Yup, in January, Keshia Knight-Pulliam the actress that played the adorable youngest daughter on the popular 1980s sitcom The Cosby Show welcomed her first child, a daughter she named Ella Grace with her estranged husband, former NFL player Ed Hartwell.

Last month, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who played the only son of the family, Theo Huxtable, and his girlfriend, reportedly a Connecticut attorney,announced the birth  of his first child as well. At the time, the star didn’t share the sex of the baby but recently, he posted a photo of himself cradling his newest addition and revealing that she is a girl.

“Man, if ANYBODY else disrespected my St. Louis Cardinals shirt like this while I was wearing it there’d be problems!” Warner captioned the Instagram photo. “Only a dad in love walks around with his daughter’s spit up on his shirt like it’s a badge of honor! #droolandstool #happydaddy #happymommy #happybaby #lovedbabiesarehappybabies #alovinghomeisahappyhome.”

When he made the birth announcement, he also shared the most adorable daddy-daughter photo.

“Peaceful time with family takes on a whole new meaning now,” the new dad captioned the skin-to-skin image cuddling with his newborn.

Warner famously dated one of our blog faves Regina King for a long time in the late 2000s before breaking up.

Keisha Knight-Pulliam Breaks Her Silence On Her Troubled Marriage

Actress Keisha Knight-Pulliam has spoken out about her marriage and husband Ed Hartwell‘s decision to file for divorce only 8 months of marriage.

A few days after the news went public, the former child star sat down with Entertainment Tonight exclusively to tell her side of the story and explain how blindsided she was by the news.

“It’s hurtful,” the Spellman College grad shared. “I knew I couldn’t be silent, because this isn’t about money. This isn’t about fame. This isn’t about social media likes or follows. This is about my character — my integrity as a woman being attacked — and that’s not OK.”

She said her husband, a former NFL Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens player, told her about filing for divorce via text message.

He noted on court papers that “irreconcilable differences”  were his reason for seeking an end to his marriage. He also asked that Knight-Pulliam soon-to-be-born daughter  be subjected to a paternity test after birth.

“This is his baby,” Keshia told ET. “He wanted more children. He was excited once he found out that we were having a little girl. There was never a question about that. … [At] no point after we got pregnant was there an issue of the fact that we’re having a baby.”

She also revealed said that she was the one who wanted to leave first after discovering he had cheated but she gave him a second chance after he plead with her to stay.

“Early on in my marriage when I was faced with this, I was ready to leave. It’s not OK,” Pulliam says. “In the process, I found out I was pregnant. And I had to take another hard look and decide if I wanted to try to work through this and forgive him for the sake of the child. Like, I had divorce papers ready. I presented it to him. … Once I was pregnant I did decide to give him that one last chance.”

“The part that hurt me the most when he filed for divorce was that he had asked me to give him another chance, and I was willing to do that and forgive him, for our family,” she adds.

Knight-Pulliam says she is okay with the separation but still interested in co-parenting.

“There’s a baby in the middle of this,” she stressed. “Regardless, if we don’t want to be married, that’s fine, because we agree on that. But this baby is what’s important.”

We’re thinking of her and the baby and family. Hopefully, she will pull through.
