Ed Hartwell, after taking a paternity test, is indeed the father of Keshia Knight Pulliam's daughter Ella Grace, who was born  last month, according to legal papers TMZ received.

He is not ready to pay child support until a judge decides a proper figure. He also said Knight Pulliam does not need emergency financial support and he is paying his own money already for a nursery at his home, TMZ said.

Their relationship was a whirlwind. The couple met in 2015, married in early 2016, in the midst of divorce by the middle of the year and in a nasty public spat soon after. They accused each other of cheating on the other. She complained about his temper. He said he wasn't even sure that the baby was his. Ultimately, he acceded to a paternity test.

Hartwell, a former NFL player, was briefly on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" in 2008 and 2009 when his ex-wife Lisa Wu was on the show as a cast member.
