On a day when many of us reflect on what we're most grateful for, Keshia Knight Pulliam turns to one little bundle of joy that she has yet to meet.

The pregnant actress took to Instagram earlier today to share a sonogram of her baby girl along with a heartfelt message expressing her gratitude for the challenges that she's overcome with the help of her daughter.

"This has been this single most challenging year of my life. However, I wake up this Thanksgiving more grateful & in awe of God's power than ever," she began.

"Thru it all this little face has kept me going & helped me tap into strength I didn't even know I possess. I am so eternally grateful for my little Ella. I would not trade any of what I have gone thru for her. She is my greatest accomplishment & joy. She has inspired my smile even thru the tears. I am so proud she has chosen me to be her mommy... #Grateful #ThereIsAlwaysARainbowAfterTheStorm #IfICanDoItSoCanYou"

Keshia's excitement for her baby girl has given her strength throughout her ongoing divorce from Ed Hartwell.

News broke of his divorce filing in late July, just days after Keshia announced she was pregnant with the couple's first child. The former athlete also reportedly requested that Keshia take a paternity test.

"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 in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"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's been my saving grace to get through it."

She continued, "I am just so excited to meet her because she has some amazing things to do in this world. I can't wait to just support her along her journey of becoming all that she is destined to be. I know she's going to be an amazing woman. She comes from a long lineage of strong, just wonderful women and I can't wait to see all that she is going to accomplish and add to the legacy."
