A rep for “The Cosby Show” actress confirmed the happy news in a PEOPLE exclusive, revealing that James proposed earlier this month in Atlanta with a custom diamond eternity band made by Fevzi, of Aydin Jewelers.
James and Pulliam celebrated the exciting occasion with immediate family, including Ella, Pulliam’s 3-year-old daughter from her marriage to Ed Hartwell, during a “magical, intimate, COVID compliant evening filled with love” courtesy of event planner Scoobie West.
“Keisha and Brad are excited to find their happily ever after,” adds her rep.
Keisha and Brad each shared the news using their favorite photo from the engagement dinner, which includes little Ella.

James’ caption included some sweet sailing metaphors:
Boats and ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not why they’re built… 🌊 Hitting the waters with my @keshiaknightpulliam 😘💍
We love it. Such a sweet couple. According to PEOPLE, the pair started dating last year after meeting on the set of the TV movie ‘Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta.’
“Honestly we just hit it off,” Pulliam, 41 said of first meeting James, 39. “We had a lot of downtime; there was a lot going on filming that project. So there were times where we would all be sitting in the cast seats or the van just talking.”
Both actors have been previously married, but Pulliam says those experiences have only helped her and her fiancé put a greater value on what they’ve found together.
“I think it’s better when you’ve been married before because you’re very clear in what you don’t desire. It makes it so much clearer when you see what it is you do want.”
Listen, we are HERE for this love! Congratulations to the happy couple!
