Former 'Cosby Show' Star Keshia Knight Pulliam Engaged

Literally ringing in the new year.

The actress known for playing Rudy Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" has a lot to be excited about in 2016.

Keshia Knight Pulliam flashed a snap of her new engagement ring early Friday morning, writing "Happy to spend not only my new year but my life with this guy!!!" The guy in question is former NFL star Ed Hartwell. Hartwell was previously married to "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Lisa Wu.

Pulliam became the youngest actress to receive an Emmy nomination when, at age 6, she earned one for Best Supporting Actress for her work on "The Cosby Show." The actress, now 36, has recently appeared on "The Apprentice" and in "Tyler Perry's House of Payne."

The actress appeared on HuffPost Live in October to discuss an interview for her podcast, "Kandidly Keshia," with former co-star Bill Cosby, where she neglected to question him about the allegations brought forth against him from more than 50 women throughout 2015. 

"I chose not to [discuss it] because … that was not my experience with him, and I wanted to share with the world the man I knew," Pulliam said.
