Sherri Shepherd Says Son is 'So Into Politics'

If you’ve ever brought your toddler to the office, you know that there are bound to be moments where you can do nothing more than hold your breath and hope for the best. Sherri Shepherd recently endured just such a moment at The View, with her son Jeffrey Charles, 3 ½. As Sherri’s boss Barbara Walters pointed out Sherri’s co-hosts on a poster, quizzing the tot as to their identities, Jeffrey correctly answered each and every time. Then the pivotal moment arrived when Barbara pointed to her own picture. "I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh!’" Sherri, 41, recalled during a Tuesday appearance on The Rachael Ray Show. "And he goes, ‘Barbara and The View!’"

"I went ‘job security!’ And then he grabs Barbara and gave her a hug and kisses her on the lips and laughed at everything she said. And I was like, ‘Yeah, baby. That’s my son."

Joking that Jeffrey is "so into politics" and that she’s "got him trained," Sherri said that she takes the subway to work every day with her son — and she isn’t above using baby gear to secure a seat. "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 laughed. "We get all kinds of attention, me and that kid."

Jeffrey is Sherri’s son with estranged husband Jeff Tarpley.

If she has the stroller, her son can sit in the stroller right?
He always has a seat :)
