Keshia was previously married to former NFL star Ed Hartwell. He filed for divorce in 2016, just months after they wed and days before she announced she was pregnant with Ella.

"I think it's better when you've been married before because you're very clear in what you don't desire," Keshia told People. "It makes it so much clearer when you see what it is you do want."
