Shammas is a financier and was with Lohan for two years before their engagement. Before meeting him, she described her dream man that perfectly suited Bader. “I want to date a guy that’s a businessman — doesn’t have Instagram, doesn’t have social media, and is completely off the grid in terms of that kind of stuff,” the Georgia Rules actress told Howard Stern at the time. “I think it will happen when it’s meant to happen.”

The two were first linked in February 2019 when Lindsay posted a group photo after a music festival in Dubai where she saw Bastille and mentioned a “boyfriend.” “@aliana lovely night with sister and my boyfriend bader. such a magical night,” she captioned the deleted photo. Lindsay’s mother, Dina, very much approved of the two’s relationship. “Lindsay is dating a wonderful guy right now,” Dina told Us Weekly in April 2020, “But that’s neither here nor there. When she’s ready to talk about her personal life, [she will].”

With regard to Lindsay Lohan’s baby name and its meaning, it has special roots in Middle Eastern culture.

Lindsay Lohan’s baby name meaning

Lindsay Lohan’s baby’s name is Luai (pronounced loo-ey), which is an anglicized spelling of Lu’ayy, a rather common Arabic name meaning “wild ox”, which also means “strong” and “steady”. It was most famously borne by Lu’ayy ibn Ghalib, an ancestor of Muhammad—the founder of the Islamic faith. “Lindsay Lohan and her Financier husband, Bader Shammas, welcomed a beautiful, healthy son named Luai. The family is over the moon in love,” their rep told People on July 17. Luai was born in Dubai, which Lohan calls home, though it’s unclear exactly when he was born.

Dina Lohan, the actor’s mom, told People that her daughter has long wanted to be a mom. “Lindsay has always loved kids because I love kids and my mother loves kids; I’m one of four,” Dina said. “We have a big family, so she’s always wanted children. And she’s so maternal. Isabelle, her niece, just runs to her when she sees her.” Dina continued: “She’s been trying and then it happened, that little stick came up positive. It’s the right time for her and Bader is an angel. Her husband is so sweet and they’re just so happy. They’re just really happy and ready.”

Lohan has been very open about her move to Dubai, saying that she “felt so relieved when I moved everything over from London to Dubai and I saw everything in one place,” she told W Magazine. “Now I don’t have to open suitcases and live out of hotels and bags. Everything is where it should be. It’s a cleansing of your head, which is what I needed, and it took me a while to do it.” She continued, “There’s a certain calmness that I find there. There’s no paparazzi, no cameras; that’s a big deal for me. I never considered people taking a picture ‘bothering’ me, but I don’t want people to misinterpret who I am as a person if they see me sneezing and they say I’m crying. I do really appreciate having the life where I can just go outside and not have to worry.”

Before her engagement announcement,  a source told The Sun earlier in 2021 that their relationship was doing well, saying, “Lindsay’s relationship with Bader [Shammas] is going strong. She has been with him for about two years now.” He’s even met the whole Lohan family who approved of the relationship. After Lindsay announced the engagement, her father, Michael Lohan, issued a statement about the happy news. “Based on what has been released by Lindsay so far, all I’ll say is that I’m so happy for her and Bader, and proud of all she’s doing in life,” he told HollywoodLife. Lindsay’s younger brother, Dakota Lohan, also shared his thoughts on the news, commenting, “My best friends!!!” on the Instagram announcement.

According to Elle, her husband Bader is a financier who currently works as the Assistant Vice President at the banking firm Credit Suisse. He previously worked as an associate with BNP Paribas Wealth Management. He earned a degree in 2010 from the University of South Florida in Mechanical Engineering and eventually received a Bachelor of Science in Finance degree from John H. Sykes College of Business. His net worth according to CA Knowledge is about $110 million.

Bader proposed to the Parent Trap actress on November 11, 2021. “My love. My life. My family. My future. @bader.shammas #love 💍 11.11.21,″ she captioned the cute photo of the two while she’s shying away from the camera with her engagement ring on.

Back in February 2022, Lindsay told Extra‘s Rachel Lindsay that she wants a thoroughly planned wedding. “I’m more low-key. Even on my birthday, I want to make sure everyone else is good and then I can be okay. So I’ll be more like that. I’m looking at destinations,” Lohan continued. “I’ve already started talking to a friend of mine about the dress. But I want to do things right and I want to pace everything. But it’s an exciting time. I’m very girly, so….”

To everyone’s surprise, Lindsay announced that she got married on her birthday on July 22, 2022. “❤️🥰I am the luckiest woman in the world,” she captioned the photo of the two. “You found me and knew that I wanted to find happiness and grace, all at the same time. I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything. ❤️every woman should feel like this everyday 🙏💖”
