Sherri Shepherd Engaged to Lamar Sally
By PopEater Staff Posted Jan 5th 2011 05:00AM
A rep for Shepherd told PEOPLE that the couple had returned from a trip to San Diego when Shepherd was surprised that their home was decorated with lights, which had been set up by one of Sally's close friends.
Her dog was in the house wearing a Santa beard and hat, and in the middle of a dish filled with M&M's was a ring 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.
Us Weekly reports that the couple have been together for over a year and are planning to have an August wedding in Chicago.
This will be Shepherd's second trip down the aisle. She was previously married to comedian Jeff Tarpley. They tied the knot in 2001, but separated in 2006 and eventually divorced in 2009 after Shepherd discovered that Tarpley was having an affair.
