Keshia Knight Pulliam 'didn't inform ex-husband she had given birth'

Ed Hartwell, the estranged husband of Keshia Knight Pulliam, was reportedly informed of their daughter's birth by his lawyer.

The 37-year-old The Cosby Show star shared her baby news via Instagram on Monday (23Jan17).


"Ella Grace has arrived!" she wrote under a picture of her daughter's foot in a white baby bootie.


She made no reference to the baby's father, Hartwell.


The former NFL player, who has a nine-year-old son, Ed Jr. with his ex-wife, reality star Lisa Wu, was reportedly only informed about the baby's arrival once Knight Pulliam was “home from the hospital" by his legal representative.


“He didn’t get a call or anything (from Knight Pulliam or her family],” a source told Page Six. “Ed basically found out at the same time as the rest of the world.”


Hartwell filed for divorce from the actress in July (16), just days after she announced her pregnancy, and soon after demanded a paternity test to prove he is the father.


However, despite now being made aware, Hartwell has not reportedly reached out to his ex, and is still said to doubt the baby is his.
