Lindsay Lohan shared some very big news on Tuesday morning.
The Mean Girls actress’ rep revealed to DailyMail.com that the Hollywood veteran is pregnant with her first child with husband of almost one year, Bader Shammas.
The 36-year-old said, ‘We are very excited for our new family member to arrive and we are looking forward to this next chapter of our lives!’
And the star also told DailyMail.com exclusively, ‘We are beyond happy for this blessing in our lives and we cannot wait to become parents.’
The last time she was photographed was on February 9 at the Christian Siriano runway show in NYC. At the time, the Parent Trap actress wore loose clothing that hid her tummy.
Her last few Instagram posts have been neck and up as she has been not showing her midsection as to keep her pregnancy a secret.
On Instagram Lohan posted a photo of a white baby’s onesie that read ‘coming soon on the front.
In the caption she wrote, ‘We are blessed and excited!’
And there were several emojis – first there was a prayer and a heart, then there was a baby’s face and a baby bottle.
New mom Paris Hilton – whom she partied with in the 2000s – shared a gushing note: ‘Congratulations love! So happy for you. Welcome to the Mommy Club!’
Kyle Richards said, ‘OMG So Happy for you!!!’ while Melissa Gorga noted, ‘Congratulations!! So happy for you’ and Bella Thorne shared, ‘OMG Congrats!’
Lohan and Shammas tied the knot in July 2022 after announcing their engagement in November 2021 on social media.
Lindsay moved to Dubai in 2014 to protect her privacy, but still travels to the US for work.
Before she met Shammas, the New York native dated Aaron Carter (2003), Wilmer Valderrama (2004), Harry Morton (2006), Samantha Ronson (2008-2009) and Egor Tarabasov (2016), whom she had a failed engagement with.
Parenthood seems to have been on the Herbie: Fully Loaded star’s mind for many years.
In 2016 Lohan told Vanity Fair that she wanted to be a mother one day. The subject came up when she said in the next decade she wanted to be busy ‘making more films, writing my book, starting my charity, working with children a lot.’
She then added, ‘Maybe having some of my own soon – after I get some movies done first.’
And the Freaky Friday had also said after that she was open to adopting children.
The silver screen staple said in July 2018: ‘I’ve always said that I would love to have two or maybe four kids, but I have no plans to start my own family yet.
‘I am more likely to adopt a child first.’
In January Lohan took to social media to share how happy she was with her new life as a wife while answering questions from her younger self.
In a sweet video the actress revealed that she overcame childhood insecurities, is still ‘silly’ and is happier than ever.
‘Conversations with Little Me,’ the star captioned the recording, which included unseen photos from her childhood and with husband Shammas.
In response to whether she is ‘still smiling,’ the Hollywood alum gushed: ‘Life is beautiful & I’m so grateful for my husband, family & everything life brings.’
When asked about whether she ‘loves’ her freckles, performer, who recently made her Hollywood comeback with the holiday film Falling for Christmas after a nearly decade-long break from acting, gave an honest answer.
‘They used to make me uncomfortable as a kid, but now I realize how beautiful they are,’ Lohan wrote.
Additionally, the natural redhead proclaimed her love for fiery tresses and made sure to note that she has not lost her passion for dressing up and being ‘girly.’
She also stated that she dances ‘to celebrate life’ and is both a ‘mommy & daddy’s girl.’
As for her relationship to her siblings, Cody, 26, Aliana, 29, and Michael Lohan Jr., 35, Lindsay described them as her ‘best friends.’
‘We love to laugh & spend time together!’ she captioned a photo of them at her latest movie premiere for Falling for Christmas.
Her post comes weeks after calling her spouse ‘amazing’ and ‘calm’ during an interview with Cosmopolitan.
‘Well, I have an amazing husband, who’s a very calm person. Just the best. And my family,’ she told the outlet.
Lohan continued: ‘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.’
Discussing her movie Falling For Christmas, she said: ‘It was really comforting to me, when I got the script, to see a movie that was a romcom because it’s always fun to work on something lighthearted and family-oriented that makes people happy and provides a bit of an escape. And I was excited… to do something with Netflix, which is a big family in a way. It was the right fit for me, especially to be able to executive produce it.’
Lindsay, who shot to stardom thanks to her parts as twins Annie and Hallie in The Parent Trap, went on to speak about her ‘evolving career.’
She said: ‘It comes very naturally to me to play a role, especially in a romantic comedy, so it doesn’t always feel like work. But when you really look at the character and how much more you can give people on-screen through the character’s eyes, there’s so much to play with and change.
In the film, Lindsay stars as an heiress who loses her memory after a skiing accident and finds herself in the care of a handsome lodge owner and his daughter.
Being married and pregnant is a big change for Lohan who faced many ups and downs in her twenties when she partied with Hilton and Britney Spears. She also had several brushes with the law, which resulted in jail time.
In May 2007, Lohan was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). She subsequently went to rehab then was arrested again, this time on charges of possession of cocaine, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
A month later, Lohan pleaded guilty to misdemeanor cocaine use and driving under the influence and was sentenced to an alcohol education program, community service, one day in jail, and was given three years probation.
In the fall of that year, Lohan served 84 minutes in jail; she was released early due to overcrowding.
In October 2009, Lohan’s DUI probation was extended by an additional year, following several instances in which she failed to attend the court-ordered substance abuse treatment classes.
A bench warrant was issues for her arrest when she traveled to France for the Cannes Film Festival in May 2010 because she missed a mandatory DUI progress hearing. She was sentenced to 90 days in jail, followed by 90 days of inpatient rehab treatment but served only 14 days in jail.
But then in September 2010, Lohan’s probation was revoked following a failed drug test. She was placed in jail for only a few hours and released on bail.
Lohan was charged with the theft of a necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store in 2011 and was sentenced to community service and 120 days in jail for misdemeanor theft and probation violation, to which she pleaded no contest but she served the sentence under house confinement.
She then again violated the terms of her probation by failing to perform the required community service and went to jail for five hours due to overcrowding.
In 2012 she got in a car accident and was pinged for reckless driving and providing false information to a police officer which meant she had to do community service again.
