Sherri Shepherd responsible for surrogate baby.
Mass Appeal Wire Reports
PHILADELPHIA — An appeals court in Pennsylvania declared “Newlywed Game” host Sherri Shepherd legally responsible for her surrogate baby which means she’ll continue to pay child support. Sherri, who also co-hosted “The View,” has battled efforts to be named the baby boy’s mother ever since her marriage collapsed in May 2014. An attorney for ex-husband Lamar Sally believes Sherri should continue to pay $4,100 per month in child support as awarded by a family court in California. The couple paid a Philadelphia surrogate $105,000 to carry the child.

The Superior Court’s ruling is the first in Pennsylvania history to declare surrogacy contracts legally binding. Sherri supported the pregnancy at first then changed her mind when a divorce became imminent. Lamar, who’s unemployed, is raising the child alone in California.
Still no word on if Sherri wants visitation rights.
