Actress and ‘View’ Co-host Sherri Shepherd says that when she and son Jeffrey, 3, ride on the trains in New York to work, “[they] get all kinds of attention.” Sherri, however, has no qualms about riding on the train with her son: “I’m so New York now, I walk down the stairs with my stroller and I get on the train and I’ll go, ‘Nobody’s going to let me sit down? You see me with my baby! And I carried that stroller down all those damn stairs.”
Sherri adds that while at work(on the set of The View), 3-year-old Jeffrey knows how to “schmooze” up to her boss Barbara Walters: “I got him trained,” Sherri says. He also knows just who schmooze when he stops by her office. “Yesterday he was at the studio and Barbara was there … he grabs Barbara and he hugs and he kisses her on the lips and I’m like, ‘Yeah baby! That’s my son.”
Sherri, whose latest movie role is in Madagascar 2:Escape To Africa, says that her son “[pooped] in his diaper” when he heard her voice in the animated film: “I’m the momma lion in the movie and I took Jeffrey to see it and he heard my voice and goes, ‘Momma! Momma … poop in my diaper!’” she says. “I’m choosing to say my son got so excited he pooped in his diaper.”
