Sherri Shepherd is getting ready to walk down the aisle to marry beau Lamar Sally, and like most brides-to-be, the View co-host is working hard to slim down for her special day. But looking good in her wedding gown isn’t the only reason she’s shedding the pounds.
“I have to lose as much weight as possible for me to be healthy to carry [a baby],” the comedian tells People.
Already mom to 6-year-old son, Jeffrey, Shepherd suffers from diabetes and has struggled with infertility in the past, having miscarried Jeffrey’s twin.
Now, as she begins an exciting new chapter in her life, Sherri’s doing as much as she can to increase her chances of being able to welcome baby number 2 in the near future.
“I go at 7 in the morning, four times a week to see my trainer over at the Reebok Club,” shares Shepherd. “She’s doing a lot of interval training with me, and these things called suicides. Those are really tough.”
Tough, but well worth it.
Good luck to Sherri and “Sal”!
