Another star will tie the knot in 2011!

The View's co-host Sherri Shepherd, 43, said yes to television writer Lamar Sally, her rep confirms to

The couple of more than a year became engaged on December 26 after returning from a San Diego trip. And the proposal was definitely a romantic one: Upon their arrival, Sally's friend had decorated the home with lights, put a Santa beard and hat on her dog, and hid the ring box in Shepherd's bowl of M&Ms.

Before asking for his love's hand, Sally asked permission from Shepherd's 5-year-old son, Jeffrey.

The couple is planning an August wedding in Chicago.
