Pregnancy certainly suits Keshia Knight Pulliam!

The former Cosby Show actress is positively glowing this photo from her maternity shoot. The mom-to-be Instagrammed this beautiful image Monday, writing, "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!!"

Keshia urged fans to download her podcast "Kandidly Keshia" for "candid updates" on her baby-to-be. This was where she announced her plans to name her little girl 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 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."

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.

Personal drama aside, though, Keshia can't wait to become a mother. "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," she said. "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."
