It isn't a secret that former child star Lindsay Lohan had a rough go in the mid-2000s, appearing in court numerous times amid her struggles with substance abuse between 2007 and 2012. But we aren't here to discuss the Parent Trap actress's overanalyzed downfalls; in fact, we're here to celebrate how well she appears to be doing.
The now-private teen-comedy queen currently lives in Dubai, where paparazzi are illegal (good for her!).
In 2022, not only did our freckled Mean Girls icon struck a two-picture creative deal with Netflix (we're totally here for the Lohanaissance), but she also tied the knot. And by the following year, the couple welcomed their first child.
So, who's is Lindsay's husband? We're here to fill you in with all the details about this beautiful little family.
Lindsay Lohan married her now-husband, Bader Shammas, in 2022.
After announcing her engagement to Bader Shammas in November 2021, Lindsay surprised fans when she referred to the dashing salt-and-pepper-haired hunk as her husband in July 2022, less than a year later.
"I am the luckiest woman in the world. You found me and knew that I wanted to find happiness and grace, all at the same time," she captioned her July 2, 2022 Instagram post. "I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything. Every woman should feel like this every day."
Per Women's Health, Bader is a financier who works as an assistant VP at Credit Suisse. He was previously employed by BNP Paribas Wealth Management.
Bader reportedly has a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of South Florida as well as a Bachelor of Science in finance rom John H. Sykes College of Business. Who doesn't love beauty and brains?
In March 2023, Lindsay Lohan announced her pregnancy. In July 2023, Lindsay's rep confirmed she'd given birth to a baby boy.
On March 13, 2023, Lindsay took to her Instagram to post a picture of a baby onesie with the words "Coming soon..." She wrote in the caption: "We are blessed and excited!"
She also told TMZ, "We are very excited for our new family member to arrive and we are looking forward to this next chapter of our lives!"
The comments section of Lindsay's announcement post blew up with well wishers from fans and fellow celebs alike, with her Parent Trap director Nancy Meyers writing "Lindsay!!!!!! I’m so excited for you!"
Her Mean Girls co-star Amanda Seyfried chimed in: "This is WONDERFUL NEWS!!"
Then, in mid-July 2023, the news was announced that Lindsay and Bader had welcomed their baby boy. “The family is over the moon in love,” Lindsay's rep said in a statement (per the New York Post).
Lindsay and Bader named their baby Luai, which translates to "shield" or "protector" in Arabic.
Lindsay Lohan previously gushed about life with her handsome hubby in numerous interviews.
When Cosmopolitan asked Lindsay about her personal support system in an October 2022 interview, her husband was the first person she mentioned.
"I have an amazing husband, who’s a very calm person. Just the best," she said. "And my family. And I feel like I have a small group of good friends who are just really good people. That’s the only support that I really need: Friends, family, and loved ones."
But, as previously mentioned, Lindsay is a very private person now (we don't blame her), so she hasn't gifted us with too many nitty-gritty details about her life with Bader.
When asked about her marriage on Good Morning America, Lindsay shared that she feels "really lucky."
"I found my partner and he's an amazing man and we're a great team," she continued.
When the hosts pushed her to give more details, however, she politely declined.
"I mean, I'm not gonna give them," she joked. "He's the best, I really — I love him so much." We commend her for setting boundaries. It's truly a joy to see Lindsay so happy; she's practically glowing.
