ATLANTA, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- First-time mom-to-be Keshia Knight Pulliam showed off her baby bump in a new photo Monday.

The pregnant 37-year-old actress proudly displayed her growing belly for a maternity shoot and shared one of the pictures with her 1.1 million followers on Instagram.

"I can't believe my belly is so BIG!! Thank you @lancegross for capturing such a magical time in my life & @tracynicoleatl for this perfect dress. This journey has been amazing!!" she captioned the snapshot.

Pulliam is expecting a baby girl with estranged husband Ed Hartwell, who filed for divorce in July shortly after the star's pregnancy announcement. She revealed on her Kandidly Keshia podcast the next month that she'll name her daughter Ella Grace.

"I knew Ella was going to be my first baby girl's first name. Then in the midst of all of this is when she's earned her middle name, Grace," the actress said.

"When I tell you through all of this the grace of God has so been with us and has covered us and protected us," she explained. "She's been my saving grace to get through it."

Pulliam and Hartwell had married in January after four months of dating. Hartwell told told Page Six after their split that he ended the marriage because Pulliam insisted on getting pregnant before he was ready.

"She wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that -- from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people -- that when you first get married, especially since we didn't have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby," he said.

Pulliam came to fame as Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show and has since appeared on Tyler Perry's House of Payne and The Celebrity Apprentice Season 14.
