Sherri Shepherd is engaged to her new fiance, Los Angeles based television writer Lamar Sally.
The two have been dating for over a year, and with the blessing of Shepherd's 5-year-old son, Sally decided to seal the deal on Christmas day. The news was announced through The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg who greeted the studio audience with a shoutout to the giddy comedian's new blinged out engagement ring.
Jewelry and style expert Michael O'Connor estimated the price of the ring rounds out at about $70,000. "The diamond cut is classic, but the pavé stones on the side make it modern and stylish," he says. "Since the diamonds were set in platinum, Sherri doesn't need to worry about them falling out."
Shepherd and Sally were introduced by mutual friend Niecy Nash, the comedian, host and former 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant.
No wedding date has been set.
