NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Lindsay Lohan reunited with her family for the first time in a while. That said, it is reportedly also the last time she sees them for a bit before welcoming her first child.

Insiders revealed that the Hollywood actress, 36, was in New York City last week primarily for work. It was also a last chance to see her own blood in person before settling down in Dubai, where she currently resides, and becoming situated for her imminent birth.

Lindsay Lohan's family reunion

Sources told TMZ that Lohan and her husband, Bader Shammas, also 36, originally had dinner plans with just her dad, Michael Lohan, on Thursday, April 13. However, it wasn't long before the small meet-up turned into a "full-blown family affair" when her father suggested they connect with Dina and the rest of her siblings as well. Insiders spilled that the entire Lohan clan got together for dinner at a restaurant called The Clocktower, which is reportedly located inside one of the Edition Hotels in the heart of Manhattan. Among those who attended the intimate gathering were Lindsay, Bader, Michael, and Dina, as well as her brothers Cody and Michael Jr, and her sister Aliana. According to TMZ, it was the first time they reunited like this in at least seven years.


The tabloid noted how everyone in the family picture had a big smile, "so it seems the dinner went well." It also concluded an eventful week for the actress, who sources said also enjoyed a small baby shower over the weekend. However, the 'Mean Girls' star is off to Dubai again, where she'll remain ahead of her delivery date. While it is unclear when that is, insiders told the outlet that her mother will be by her side when the time comes. Her siblings also plan to visit her during this period. "While it's unclear how far along she is ... our sources say her pregnancy is going great," TMZ added.


How did Lindsay Lohan and Bader Shammas meet?

Lohan relocated to Dubai in 2014, well after she had begun to maintain a low profile. In an interview with Who What Wear in November 2022, she described the location as a "sacred space" where she "could do my own thing, and nobody bothered me." The actress first met Shammas, an assistant vice president at the international investment bank Credit Suisse, while she was residing in Dubai. Although it is unclear exactly when the two started dating, they were initially linked in February 2020, when Lohan posted a picture on Instagram referring to Shammas as her boyfriend before quickly deleting the image.


Lohan publicly announced her engagement to Shammas on social media in November 2021, and the two eventually got married in 2022. 'The Parent Trap' star stated, "I have an amazing husband, who's a very calm person," as she gushed about her marriage in an interview with Cosmopolitan in October 2022. The 'Herbie: Fully Loaded' star later said she knew she would marry Shammas because she could sense their connection. Lohan even acknowledged that she is quite "protective" of her relationship with the 35-year-old investor, which makes her hesitant to discuss it in public.
