Sherri Shepherd’s surrogate gave birth to a baby boy on Aug.5  in Pennsylvania, according to E! News.

Shepherd and her estranged husband, Lamar Sally, are in the midst of a nasty divorce and have reportedly fought over everything from custody to child support regarding the baby.

It doesn’t seem that the differences were set aside on the day of birth. Shepherd was not present for the birth, but Lamar was, reports TMZ.

Sources close the father say “he is excited to be a new dad and for the future ahead.” The site also reports that “Lamar intends to raise the child himself but will still ask a judge to order Sherri to pay [child] support.”

Meanwhile, the actress has filed papers requesting to waive her rights and responsibilities as a parent. If her request is granted, Sally would not be able to ask for child support payments from Shepherd.

This legal battle makes the second legal battle the “The View” host has dealt with in the last couple of months. She just won custody of her son named Jeffrey, 9, with her first husband Jeffrey Tarpley in court on July 21.

Her newest legal battle with Sally began after the couple split in May after three years of marriage.
