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’s House 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.

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.

One thing I've been seeing return to my social media feed is the opportunity to travel. Since the top of 2020, the world has been trying to figure out what "catching a flight" will look like in the future. And when you travel with your bae, it is an extraordinary experience that should be on everyone's bucket list. On a baecation, you are able to unwind from the daily Zoom meetings and experience another culture together. It's also another way to really take your intimacy to another level and grow closer to your boo mentally, physically, and emotionally.
