‘The View’ co-host Sherri Shepherd is engaged!
TV writer Lamar Sally proposed to Shepherd on Dec. 26. Another wedding engagement was made that day too – Vivica Fox and Omar White.
A statement by Shepherd’s rep details the details and moments leading up to the engagement.
“Upon arriving back to Lamar’s home in Los Angeles from a trip to San Diego, Sherri was surprised to find their accommodations had been decorated with lights by one of Sal’s best friends.
Her dog was wearing a Santa beard and hat, and, in the middle of a dish of Sherri’s favorite but forbidden M&M’s (she is diabetic), was a tiny little box.”
The statement continued, “With that, Sal took a knee and popped the question.”
But before Sally proposed, he asked for permission from Shepherd’s 5-year-old son, Jeffrey.
The couple has been together for over a year. This will be Shepherd’s second trip down the aisle. She was previously married to comedian Jeff Tarpley but they divorced in 2009.
When is the wedding? The pair will tie the know in August in Chicago.
Congrats to the happy couple!
