AceShowbiz - %cKeisha Knight Pulliam% tied the knot to former NFL player %cEd Hardwell% on New Year's Eve when everyone thought they were only getting engaged. The "Cosby Show" actress revealed the surprising truth on Friday, January 22 on her podcast Kandidly Keisha.
Earlier this month, Knight Pulliam fueled rumor of engagement when she posted a picture of herself wearing a ring on her finger. She went on posting a photo of her kissing Hardwell and wrote, "Happy to spend not only my new year but my life with this guy!!! #BlessedBeyondMeasure." Technically, she did not keep the marriage a secret because she did not mention the word wedding or engagement at that time.
Then she decided to clear the air on her podcast, saying "We did it literally in our living room in our home. We come from large family. I'm one of four, Ed is one of six. We invited people. They had no clue they were coming to a wedding. They thought they were coming to a New Year's party."
A photo from the wedding was also posted on Instagram. "The most AMAZING day of our life!!! New 'Kandidly Keshia' available on play.it/Keshia. Listen as we share our magical wedding day. #IamOfficiallyMrsHartwell," Knight-Pulliam wrote.
The wedding was officiated by ordained minister Raymond Coleman who said, "It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies that I had the opportunity to officiate. And I mean that in terms of the energy that was emitted. There was so much love in that room that it was phenomenal."
It was the first marriage for her and the second for him. He was previously married to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star %cLisa Wu% and has a son with her.
