NEW YORK, July 2 (UPI) -- Sherri Shepherd and estranged husband Lamar Sally reached an agreement on child support this week.

The 48-year-old television personality will pay $4,100 per month to Sally for the baby boy born via surrogate she previously disavowed. TMZ reports the amount will increase to $4,300 when Lamar Sally, Jr. turns 13.

Shepherd will no longer be obligated to pay child support if she pursues and wins her fraud claim against Sally. She alleges the television writer defrauded her into having a surrogate carry the baby, conceived of Sally's sperm and a donor egg, to get child support.

Shepherd and Sally married in August 2011, and have no other children together. The television personality filed for divorce in May 2014, days after Sally filed for separation, and wants her frozen embryos with the writer destroyed.

"Love this quote: 'No matter what, one in your life someone will hurt you,'" Shepherd wrote Wednesday on Instagram. "'That someone will take all that you are and rip it into pieces ... But through the breakdown, you will learn something about yourself. You'll learn that you are strong. And no matter how hard they try to destroy you, you can conquer anything.'"
