Lindsay Lohan is back in the spotlight now that she's acting again. The 36-year-old Mean Girls alum has been working with former Glee star Chord Overstreet on the new holiday film, Falling For Christmas. The movie will be available for streaming on November 10 on Netflix.
ICYDK, Lindsay hasn't starred in a major film since The Canyons in 2013, per USA Today. Since then, she's been doing other projects like television voiceovers and short films. But being a hot topic has left a lot of fans in need of a refresher on her personal life, including her marriage to Bader Shammas.
Lindsay and Bader announced their engagement in late November 2021 and got married less than a year later. The couple likes to keep their dynamic under the radar most of the time, so people didn't know they were married until Lindsay referred to him as her "husband" on social media.
But on November 8th, Lindsay called being married to Badar "amazing" on Good Morning America. "I'm really lucky," she said. "I found my partner and he's an amazing man and we're a great team."
Still curious about Bader and their relationship? Here's everything to know so far.
Who is Bader Shammas?
Bader is a financier and currently works as the Assistant Vice President at 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 received a Bachelor of Science in Finance degree from John H. Sykes College of Business.
When did Lindsay and Bader get married?
It's unclear when exactly the duo tied the knot. In July 2022, Lindsay shared a photo of them together, referring to Bader as her husband.
"🎂❤️🥰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 the post. "I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything. ❤️every woman should feel like this everyday 🙏💖"
In March 2022, it was reported that Lindsay and Bader began wedding planning just four months after he proposed. Then, an insider shared that there could be a wedding in Dubai and in the U.S. “It’s going to be intimate. You don’t see her out and about anymore. Lindsay really likes her privacy," the source told US Weekly.
How long have Bader and Lindsay been together?
In 2021, The Independent reported they'd been together about two years. So at this point, they should be roughly three years in.
The first time she mentioned Bader was in February of 2020, when she posted a photo of herself out with band members Bastille at a concert in Dubai, which she initially captioned, “@aliana lovely night with my sister and my boyfriend Bader such a magical night.” Shortly after, she edited the caption and eventually deleted it entirely.
Where do they live?
The couple resides in Dubai, where Lindsay has lived for the last seven years. In 2018, she shared that finally settling down in Dubai was a huge shift from her previous living situations.
“I 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.”
Has she mentioned him on social media before?
Yup! While Bader likes to keep things private, Lindsay has given her followers a glimpse of their relationship on Instagram.
Over the summer, she posted a photo of them out at dinner in London. "Home of the queen 🇬🇧 with my 👑," she wrote.
Here they are again for Bader's birthday.
And again while celebrating their engagement.
What has she said about their marriage?
Lindsay kept details about her marriage off the table during her recent appearance on Good Morning America. "I'm really lucky. I found my partner, and he's an amazing man, and we're a great team," she revealed.
But when asked for further details, Lindsay was quick to shut it down. "I mean, I'm not gonna give [details]," the actress laughed. "He's the best, I really—I love him so much."
Has he met her family?
LiLo fans can rest easy knowing that Bader has her family's approval. Following their engagement, Lindsay's mom Dina, took to her Instagram Story to express her joy for the couple. "My heart is full. #engaged #newbeginnings," she wrote.
Then, Lindsay shared a collage of Bader posing with several of her family members over the holidays.
Has Lindsay been married before?
No, but The Mean Girls actress was previously engaged to Russian business heir Egor Tarabasov before their split in 2017. Lindsay has since claimed that Tarabasov was physically abusive. Tarabosov has emphatically denied all abuse claims and accused her of launching a “smear campaign” against him.
