“Sherri was ready to expand their family and had found a healthy surrogate. They were actively trying to have another child, but it was putting extra strain on their marriage,” the insider told Radar.
According to the source, Shepherd, 47, wanted Sally, 43, to step up as a father figure – but claims he “was lazy” and “sat around the house all day doing nothing.”
“Sherri has a full time nanny, who drives Jeffrey to school every day
and picks him up in the afternoon. This has been going on for years,
and Lamar doesn’t even offer to help. It is unfortunate.
“Sherri started to wonder if he’d ever be able to step up once they
had another child, or if she’d be practically raising the child alone,”
the source said.
