At the party, and in front of everyone, Desmond asked Sheri to marry him. His mother burst into tears, but not the happy kind of tears he probably would have preferred.
"I want him to have babies. My son carries the name," she explained. "His dad is deceased, his grandfather is deceased, his great-grandfather is deceased. It's like, he's the only boy left."
The odds of Sheri, at 50-years old, being able to continue the family name were pretty slim. But, when the couple appeared on "The View" to defend their May-December romance, Desmond said that things have changed at home.
