Rudy Huxtable is ready to become a mother.

As the countdown continues for the birth of Keshia Knight Pulliam's baby girl, The Cosby Show star was treated to a surprise baby shower Sunday afternoon.

"My Kamp Kizzy babies completely surprised me with a beautiful shower to celebrate Ella Grace today!! I am so grateful & appreciative of all of their hard work," she wrote on Instagram. "My heart is full. Ella has so much love... she is going to grow up wondering why everyone doesn't have 72 aunties & uncles, 60 cousins & more sisters than she can count!! Lol!!"

Keshia continued, "Ella & I are the world's luckiest girls to have all of you. You are my first babies & I am so proud that Ella will have so many amazing role models to look up to. #I❤YouToTheMoonAndBack #KampKizzy #Grateful #YouGuysAlwaysMakeMeCry."

Guests including Atlanta Exes star Monyetta Shaw also documented the celebration on Snapchat where the event's filter revealed the actress is due in January.

Back in August, Keshia announced on her Podcast "Kandidly Keshia" that she would be naming her baby girl Ella Grace. She also revealed that her daughter's middle name was inspired by recent events surrounding her relationship with estranged husband Ed Hartwell.

"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 explained. "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. It's knowing that it's not about me."

She continued, "Knowing that on days when I want to curl up in the bed, pull the covers over my head and cry until my eyes fall out, that is not an option because she feels everything I feel and right now, it is bigger than me—it's about her. It is about her being ok."

While Keshia and Ed's divorce remains in progress, the expectant star is still very much looking forward to the future.

"I know she's going to be an amazing woman," Keshia recently shared on her podcast. "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."
