Do not cry for Keshia Knight Pulliam.
She doesn’t want your tears.
Just maybe a dollop of sunscreen.
Embroiled in one of the celebrity gossip world’s most unexpected scandals at the moment, Pulliam shared a new photo on Instagram yesterday that made it clear she’s doing just fine.
The picture depicts Pulliam in a black bikini, cleavage prominent and one hand on her belly.
"The joy of sitting by the pool and not having to suck your stomach in!! #MeAndMyLittleLady," the pregnant star wrote.
Indeed, Pulliam is expecting her first child.
She knows it will be a girl and she swears the father is estranged husband Ed Hartwell.
However, Hartwell filed for divorce last week, demanding Pulliam takes a paternity test in order to prove his sperm fertilized her egg.
Does he have any evidence of infidelity?
No, but Hartwell told The New York Post last week that Pulliam went to visit a spiritualist after the couple ran into trouble a few months ago.
She also “started going out with friends all the time and not telling me when she was coming home or sometimes not coming home at all."
It was this disappearance that makes Hartwell think Pulliam could have had an affair.
The former Cosby Show actress denies this charge and actually says Hartwell is the one who cheated… but she’s simply over the whole mess anyway.
She shared the following passage on her Instagram account this week…
… and then wrote as a caption to the pic:
I always say that my plan "B" has always been God’s plan "A"… Embracing the journey & eternally grateful for the abundance of blessings.
A few days ago, Pulliam made similar comments on her podcast.
She told listeners that she was prepared to move on with her life.
"I’ve definitely had a trying week, to say the least, but I’m grateful, I’m here, I’m well, baby girl is well and, at the end of the day, that is all that matters," she said, later adding:
"Despite what’s been publicized, there’s always funny, there’s always love, there’s always laughter, no matter what."
We admire that attitude and we wish her well.
