Reportedly, congratulations are in order for Sherri Shepherd and Lamar “Sal” Sally.
According to TMZ, the estranged couple’s surrogate gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, (August 5) in Pennsylvania with Sally in attendance. Custody of the child is unclear due to the pair’s ongoing legal battles.
After nearly 3 years of marriage, Sally filed for divorce from Shepherd. Following the divorce filing in May, there have been reports about a complicated battle over childcare, and whether Shepherd will have a role in the baby’s life. Shepherd has remained mum on The View and during other public appearances on the topic.
“I say you can’t beat yourself up when you know you’ve made the wrong choice in a guy,” Shepherd told Us in June of the split. “You look, you do some introspective work, and you try not to make the same mistake. If you do, get back up, dust your feet off, and start walking and moving forward.”
Shepherd and ex-husband Jeff Tarpley are parents to 9-year-old son Jeffrey. The View alum recently maintained custody of their son when Tarpley attempted to obtain full custody in April.
Shepherd has not yet commented on the reported birth.
