Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ed Hartwell are headed for divorce just six months after the couple secretly wed. The divorce news comes on the heels of the actresses pregnancy announcement, and Ed is the one who pulled the plug on the marriage. Find out what happened.
Keshia Knight Pulliam, 37, and her husband of six months, former NFL star, Ed Hartwell, 38, have split just days after the actress announced her pregnancy on Instagram, and things may get pretty nasty. Ed filed the divorce complaint under “irreconcilable differences” on July 25 in Fulton County, Georgia. According to documents obtained by YBF, who first broke the news, he has some doubts he could be the father. “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby,” a rep for former athlete told the site.
The split may come as no surprise for some since sources close to the couple “noticed constant bickering going on,” but an “all out divorce, though, was unexpected.” The site also reports that Ed has a past with “acting impulsively.”
Keshia announced her pregnancy July 18 on Instagram. She captioned a selfie with a pink cupcake, “Surprise!!! We have a new addition coming soon… Tune into#KandidlyKeshia this week for the details!!” Her friend confirmed Ed and The Cosby Show alum were expecting a girl in a group photo of Keshia and her friends.
The two had gotten engaged on New Year’s Eve, where she took to social media to confirm the news in an Insta post. Keshia captioned a shot of she and Ed kissing, “Happy to spend not only my new year but my life with this guy!!! #BlessedBeyondMeasure,” while her engagement ring stole the photo’s thunder. Just weeks after, the couple tied the knot.
Before getting together with the actress, Ed was previously married to The Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s, Lisa Wu, 43.
