10 Things You Didn’t Know about Brad James

Everyone loves a good love story, and it seems that Brad James is full of them. He made headlines in 2020 for his very sweet love story with The Cosby Show, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, and their brand-new engagement. They are living their own happily ever after, and it’s been delightful to union blossom over time – and we don’t mean just because 2020 was filled with gross news or because no one ever says anything positive about the show that made her famous anymore. However, it also makes us want to know more about Brad James, so let’s get started.

1. He’s An 80s Child

Brad James was born early enough in the 80s that he got to enjoy growing up in a much easier, much simpler, much better time. His date of birth is July 7, 1981. He got to be a kid at a time when being a kid was easy. We miss those days, and we do miss that we don’t get to raise our own kids in those days.

2. He’s a Former Military Personnel

For his service and his sacrifice to this great nation, we humbly and appreciatively thank Brad James. Your service does not go unnoticed, and we are forever thankful for the men and women like yourself who choose to protect our freedoms. He spent four years serving as a U.S. Marine.

3. His Childhood Was Not Traditional

When you think of a traditional childhood, you tend to think of two loving parents raising you in a sweet home with a white picket fence, a couple of siblings, and perhaps a dog or a cat. You have a driveway on which to ride your bike, a basketball hoop attached to the garage, and maybe your mom bakes you the best cookies ever. No? Well, that’s what I’m reminded of. We don’t know if his childhood looked anything like that, but we do know it did not involve two parents. He was raised by his maternal grandparents, so we’d like to think that they gave him everything he needed to have a spectacular childhood.

4. Brad James Once Broke His Ankle

While serving in the Marine Corps, he broke his ankle. So, while you do see him doing his own stunt work in movies, he’s doing it on an ankle that never really healed correctly. The break came in the late 2000s, but he works around what didn’t work out for him.

5. He’s Trained in Very Cool Things

Aside from the fact that Brad is a Marine who trained in combat, he also trained in a few other things that are downright cool. He trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He also trained in hand-to-hand combat. These things likely help him when he’s performing his own stunts.

6. Brad James And His Wife Hit It Off Fast

When he and his now-wife met on the set of a movie, they hit it off right away. During their first meeting, they quickly realized that they both had so much in common and that they could talk endlessly without interruption or feeling like there was nothing left to talk about. We would say that’s a good sign.

7. He’s Into Personal Health

If there is one thing that is very important to Brad James, it’s his personal health. He likes to eat well, he likes to work out, and he likes results. However, he’s just like the rest of the world. No matter how hard he tries, he’s rarely ever satisfied with the results. Thankfully, that taught him a valuable lesson: being the best version of yourself is important even when that best version is not what you thought it might be. When you learn to have patience with yourself and to appreciate what you have to offer, you really do change the game. It’s a big deal.

8. Brad James Is Doing All Right For Himself

Brad James might not be as famous as his wife – who could be more famous than Rudy Huxtable herself – but he’s not doing poorly by any means. He’s got an estimated net worth of approximately $4 million in 2023. The bulk of his net worth is from his career as an actor.

9. They’re Both in their Second Marriage

We don’t know much about his first wife, but we know that Keshia Knight Pulliam was married to retired NFL star Edgerton Hartwell for a few months in 2016. During that time, she had a little girl, Ella. James has no children of his own, but that will change soon. In 2022, he and his wife announced they were expecting their first child together. However, they both know exactly what they do not want in a spouse after their previous marriages, so this works for them quite well.
