Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally's marriage is officially over — and the star is reportedly set to pay him child support!
According to a new report, the 48-year-old TV personality and her estranged husband finalized their divorce on Wednesday, July 1. With the finalization of their divorce, the actress has allegedly agreed to pay her ex-husband $4,100 a month in child support for their baby, who was born via surrogate last summer. The payment will increase to $4,600 when the child turns 13-years-old.

Before their breakup in May 2014, Sherri and Lamar, 44, planned to have a child via surrogate — using Lamar's sperm and another woman's egg — until the former co-host of The View had a change of heart just a few months into the surrogate's pregnancy. In April, a judge ruled Sherri is the legal mother of the eight-month-old baby, who now resides with Lamar.

As stated in the TMZ report, the couple additionally fought over several frozen embryos they created while still married and now have in storage. While Sherri wants the embryos to be destroyed, Lamar is allegedly undecided. Their divorce settlement confirmed the Precious star will not have to pay child support if Lamar ever decides to bring the embryos to term.
