Actor Brad James is known for his role as Todd in Tyler Perry’s sitcom For Better Or For Worse, as well as guest appearances on Netflix's Outer Banks and on the UMC series A House Divided.

There was an initial connection between the both of them while filming Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, when Keisha tripped walking down the aisle in the church and Brad had caught her in his arms, according to an interview. The couple then hit it off while filming the rest of the movie with lots of downtime to get to know each other. 

The two took to Instagram and gushed about their engagement with Keisha saying “I said Yes!! I LOVE YOU @mrbradjames!!!! This is my favorite photo from our magical engagement dinner. My desire is a lifetime and beyond filled with love & family. My heart is so filled with joy!! So excited to continue to choose each other & our family every day.” 

Brad captioned his post of the same picture,very poetically saying, “Boats and ships are safe in harbor, but that's not why they're built. Hitting the waters with my @keshiaknightpulliam #engaged.”

James and Pulliam have both been married before.

They explained having been married before that their relationship now means they are both wiser when it comes to love.

 “It does mean that you have to have two people who actively desire to be here who want to work at it, who want to make each other happy and each other a priority because when you do that, you know you can be successful,” said Pulliam.

Pulliam also explained in the interview what she learned from going into a new relationship after being previously married that “once you’ve been married and you have been divorced, you have a very different perspective, and you understand the work that goes into it and the difference in the work, because people are like oh, marriage is hard but not some of that stuff, that just means he’s not the one for you. It’s not that hard,” said Pulliam.
