Atlanta power couple actress Keshia Knight Pulliam and former NFL player Ed Hartwell are expecting.

The former "Cosby Kid" and ex-"Real Housewives of Atlanta" hubby of Lisa Wu held a Starz drama "Power" viewing party Sunday night and surprised guests when it became a baby shower instead. She posted the news on Instagram:

They also surprised guests with an engagement New Year's Eve 2015, then a wedding ceremony a day later. 

Pulliam is 37 years old. She was best known as Rudy on "The Cosby Show" three decades ago and was also a cast member of "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" on TBS. She appeared in 2013 on "Celebrity Apprentice" and was the first one eliminated.

I had a debate recently with readers here about whether I should have interviewed Pulliam before she was honored by the Urban League of Atlanta because her publicist told me straight out not to bring up Bill CosbyThe poll said 62 percent considered me principled for turning the interview down while 38 percent deemed me petty.
