Who are Sherri Shepherd’s children?

On April 22, 2005, Sherri Shepherd and then-husband Jeffrey Tarpley welcomed their first child together.

As for the couple’s son, Jeffrey Jr., the couple has faced health issues as the child’s birth came prematurely at just 25 weeks.

Before his premature birth, Sherri and Jeffrey endured a loss when the TV personality suffered a miscarriage and lost Jeffrey Jr.’s twin sister.

Regarding her then-new life as a mother, Sherri told her fans on MySpace, “I never thought that a child could have the sole power to take someone’s heart and wrap it in their little fist.

“It’s funny how having a baby changes your priorities. I work, but I’m not stressed and hectic like I used to be.

“Having a baby gives you a more compassionate heart. I seem to care more about the world around me now that I have a child who will hopefully be around longer than I have.”

In 2009, she and Jeffrey met and divorced Splitsville, the former retaining custody of their son.

Over the years, the Emmy winner revealed that Jeffrey Jr. is in good health despite health complications from the birth.

In fact, Sherri told PEOPLE that the tables had turned and that Jeffrey was the one helping her with her health and fitness.

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant recalled: “I had this vision of my son when he was 5 years old holding his teddy bear and he was crying because he was trying to find out where heaven was because everyone was saying there be mom.

“That woke me up. All about my son… I was startled and I said, ‘I have to change something because I don’t want to die.’

“So he always encourages me and I’m encouraged too because I get to do more things with him and I have more energy.”

Why is Sherri paying child support?

When Shepherd filed for divorce from Sally in 2014, they had signed a contract with a surrogate who was several months pregnant with their future child.

However, Sally immediately took Shepherd to court for child support and in 2015 the request was granted.

It was reported at the time that Shepherd had to pay $4,100 in child support each month until the child turned 13, increasing to $4,600 each month thereafter.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE in 2015, Shepherd said she was afraid Sally would leave her if she didn’t agree to surrogacy.

“My situation was a feeling of, I didn’t say what I needed and what I wanted and what I didn’t want because I was afraid of someone leaving the relationship,” she told the magazine.

“Everything has consequences, but I was afraid to say, ‘This isn’t going to work for me. I dont want that.'”

In 2017, Sally took Shepherd back to court, claiming she had to pay more child support because her income had increased.

The judge denied Sally’s request and Shepherd’s representative said, “Shepherd now hopes her ex will stop his frivolous attempts to get more money out of her and seek gainful employment to care for his child like any other able-bodied parent.”

Shepherd has no genetic relationship to the child and is not involved in his life.
