Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally are engaged. The co-host of the popular morning talk show The View said yes when her TV writer boyfriend popped the question on December 26.

Shepherd’s rep shared the details of the engagement: “Upon arriving back to Lamar’s home in Los Angeles from a trip to San Diego, Sherri was surprised to find their accommodations had been decorated with lights by one of Sal’s best friends. Her dog was wearing a Santa beard and hat, and, in the middle of a dish of Sherri’s favorite but forbidden M&M’s (she is diabetic), was a tiny little box.”

Shepherd, 43, is the mother of 5-year-old Jeffrey — born during her union to comedian Jeff Tarpley. Lamar asked her little man for permission to marry his mother. Sherri and Lamar have been a couple for a year and are planning an August 2011 wedding in Chicago.

Sherri just couldn’t wait any longer to spread the good news but she will definitely be dishing about her new status and showing off her engagement ring when The View returns from hiatus on January 10.

Recently Prince made a guest appearance on The View and a decidedly smitten Sherri caused his to flee the stage.
