Ed Hartwell has finally broken his silence regarding the surprise divorce papers he dropped on his wife, Keshia Knight Pulliam. According to the former NFL player, Rudy from The Cosby Show wanted a baby shortly after they tied the knot, but he wanted to wait.
Reports Page Six:
Hartwell, who married “Cosby Show” star Knight Pulliam, 37, on January 1 after dating for four months, said that they stopped having sex once the romance soured — but claims she was so fixated on getting pregnant he suspects she went behind his back to do it.
He told us that after they wed, “she wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn’t have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby. That’s something she really did want to do.”
Hartwell added that in February he “had a sit-down” with his wife, who became the youngest-ever winner of an Emmy award for her role as Rudy Huxtable on the once-beloved NBC show.
“I said, ‘I think we probably messed up. I think we moved too fast,’” he told us, “‘Our lives and wants are headed two different directions.’”
During the heart-to-heart Hartwell confessed that his ex, whom he dated for four years, had “lost a baby” and it made him realize he still “cared about her.” Knight Pulliam was so upset after Hartwell’s admission that she virtually disappeared from his life.
So much tea. So much struggle.

You know that baby is yours, Ed.
