Lindsay Lohan is proud of her postpartum body

Lindsay Lohan wants women to feel empowered after giving birth. In a new interview with Bustle, Lohan addressed postpartum body image, saying she didn't feel "pressure" to get back in shape immediately after welcoming her first child.

In March 2023, Lohan announced that she was expecting her first child with husband Bader Shammas. The couple welcomed their son, Luai, in July and her rep said: "The family is over the moon."

Nine months later, Lohan encouraged women to relax and embrace their postpartum bodies in an interview with Bustle. "I was so attached to [Luai] that my last thought was to get on the treadmill ," she said. "I feel like we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to look 'good' so quickly, but you look beautiful [postpartum]. Give yourself some time."

Lohan's relaxed attitude toward her postpartum body also lends itself to Ozempic's popularity, but she doesn't want to participate. "Everyone is so skinny now," she said. "I feel like everything is going to come full circle, so this is the moment and this too shall pass. But it does seem stressful."

In August, about a month after giving birth, Lohan proudly showed off her postpartum body on Instagram, mentioning Mean Girls in the post. “I am so proud of what this organization has accomplished during these months of pregnancy and now in recovery,” she wrote. “Having a baby is the greatest blessing in the world! Because I am not an ordinary mom, I I am a postpartum mother.”

Since her son's birth, Lohan has been careful not to share too much about her baby boy online, although she has been open about how much she loves motherhood. "It's a new, different kind of love that you think you'll never experience," she told Buster.
