Sherri Shepherd has a new baby boy in her world! The soon-to-be ex View hostess and her soon-to-be ex husband, Lamar Sally, had a child via an egg donor and a surrogate. Now TMZ hears that surrogate gave birth on August 5 in Pennsylvania.


Typically this news would mean nothing but smiles and sunshine but, as we all know, Sherri’s in the midst of some rather nasty legal snarls. After nearly three years of marriage, Lamar filed for divorce in early May; Sherri soon countered with her own divorce proceedings. Then came the duking it out over custody with Sherri facing both Lamar and her first ex-husband, who wanted sole custody of their son, Jeffrey.


While a judge ruled in Sherri’s favor concerning her older son, the future of the younger child is still in question. The way TMZ is hearing it, Sherri has disavowed maternity and claims Lamar defrauded her when she signed the documents concerning surrogacy. Her theory? He wanted to divorce her and ask for child support from the get-go.

What’s this all mean? Well, if TMZ’s sources are correct, Lamar intends to raise the baby boy by himself but will request child support from Sherri, who was not at the birth of the child. Fingers crossed everything gets sorted before the little one is old enough to understand the mess.
