Fresh off of her fairy tale wedding to actor Brad James, Keshia Knight Pulliam is getting back to business with her fabulous career in television. However, her latest venture ended up hitting close to home. The Tyler Perry’sHouse of Payne star was originally narrating OWN’s upcoming documentary Eggs Over Easy which is about women choosing to freeze their eggs.


Little did she know that she would also end up speaking about her decision to freeze her eggs. In a promo clip released on Dec. 15, Keshia opened up about what started her on the journey.

“When this whole documentary started, I just came on to narrate. I never in a million years thought, I would also be active in front of the camera part of this documentary,” she said. “I decided to freeze my eggs because I’m 41. I know I want another baby but I also know the time isn’t now.”

The former child star had her daughter Ella Hartwell at 38 years old when she was married to former NFL player Ed Hartwell, but they ended up divorcing in 2016. Keshia admitted that she thought she would “have plenty of time” to have another baby, but the divorce changed things.

“Not to say it was wrong, but sometimes life throws you curveballs and you could have your perfect forever planned out but you have to embrace because what I have learned is my Plan B has always been God’s Plan A,” she said.

Keshia, who serves as an executive producer on the documentary, went on to marry Brad in late September 2021 after two years of dating. Her A House Divided acting husband doesn’t have kids of his own and so Keshia freezing her eggs will give them an opportunity to have their first child together.

The Eggs Over Easy doc is a part of Oprah Winfrey’s health initiative called Own Your Health which focuses on Black women’s experience with infertility, IVF, miscarriages, and other health-related issues that they face.

Eggs Over Easy premieres on January 4, 2022.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
