Sherri Shepherd showed off her princess-cut engagement ring on “The View” on Monday. The custom ring is two-carats and set on a diamond band.
The TV host got engaged to Lamar Sally on December 26 when he proposed at their home in front of her five-year-old son Jeffrey.
“For Christmas, he had a present for Jeffrey — it was a game,” Shepherd explained. “And he said to Jeffrey, ‘Can I marry your mom?’ And Jeffrey’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want to play with my game!'” she said. “And he got on one knee, and he said, ‘Mrs. Shepherd, would you be my wife?’ And I said ‘yeah!'”
After proposing, Shepherd joked that her fiance had trouble standing up from bended knee.
“It was hard,” she said. “My baby, he’s 6 feet 6 inches, 250-plus pounds. I mean, I got him from Detroit.”
