Lindsay Lohan announces engagement to boyfriend Bader Shammas

Actress Lindsay Lohan has announced her engagement in a series of loved-up photos on Instagram.

The Mean Girls star, 35, shared the news with a string of black and white photos in which she is seen cuddling boyfriend Bader Shammas and showing off a diamond ring.

She captioned the pictures with a ring emoji, adding: “My love. My life. My family. My future. @bader.shammas #love.”

She shared the news with her almost 10 million Instagram followers, while Shammas has a private account with under 600.

Diamond expert Zack Stone sid her 4ct ring, which “looks to feature an exquisite radiant cut diamond on a solitaire setting”, is likely to have a value of “around $200,000” (£150,000).

It comes as Lohan makes her return to acting next month in a Netflix Christmas romantic comedy.

The former child star, who found fame as a 12-year-old in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, will play a newly engaged hotel heiress who suffers amnesia following a skiing accident.
