Shammas is the assistant vice president at Credit Suisse. Multiple outlets reported a LinkedIn profile with his name and occupation. According to its official website, Credit Suisse is "a leading financial services company, advising clients in all aspects of finance, across the globe and around the clock."

The LinkedIn profile reportedly lists Shammas as having attended the University of South Florida and the University of Tampa.

In February 2020, Lohan sparked romance rumors when she shared a since-deleted group photo from a music festival in Dubai, casually mentioning a "boyfriend" in the caption.

In the picture, Lohan was seen happily posing between a man in a black jacket and Bastille drummer Chris "Woody" Wood, who performed with his band that night. Also among the group were Lohan's sister Aliana and rocker Dan Smith.

"@aliana lovely night with sister and my boyfriend bader" she wrote, adding,"such a magical night."

A rep for Lohan didn't confirm the dating rumors at the time.

In her engagement post, Lohan tagged Shammas' Instagram account, which he keeps private. To date, he has 780 followers.

Lohan shared a black-and-white photo of the two cuddled together on Valentine's Day 2022.

"My forever Valentine," she captioned the image, adding a red heart emoji.

Like Lohan, Shammas resides in Dubai.

"It's a billionaire's playground," Andy Cohen told Jerry O'Connell and co-host Natalie Morales on The Talk. Cohen hosts The Real Housewives of Dubai.

Lohan elaborated on her decision to move abroad in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"I love living in New York, but I do love the serenity and peace that I find living in the Middle East because there are no cameras in Dubai, and I can actually focus on what I want to do in life," she said. "I don't always have to be scrutinized every second. I can have a private life and have a public life, but when I choose to. I think that's really important."

When Lohan and Shammas got engaged, she wrote on Instagram, "My love. My life. My family. My future," adding the hashtag "#love."

However, Shammas wasn't the first man to propose to Lohan. She was previously engaged to Russian business mogul Egor Tarabasov. The relationship ended in 2016 when a video of a physical altercation between the two surfaced online.

"I genuinely fell in love with him, but he broke my trust and made me feel unsafe," Lohan said.

Shammas also has won over his in-laws. When news of their engagement broke, Lohan's mom, Dina, reacted by writing on her Instagram Story at the time, "My heart is full. #engaged #newbeginnings."

Lohan doubled down on the family vibes when she posted a 2021 recap collage on Instagram featuring photos of her and Shammas spending quality time with her family.

After Lohan referred to Shammas as her husband in an Instagram post, PEOPLE confirmed Lohan was married in July 2022.

Following the wedding, the two vacationed in the Turkish Riveria, staying at The Bodrum EDITION, a luxury resort near the Yalikavak Marina, which sits at the most western point of the Bodrum peninsula.

Lohan and Shammas became parents in July 2023 when they welcomed their son, Luai. In Arabic, his name means "shield or protector."

A rep for the actress confirmed the news to PEOPLE and said: "Lindsay Lohan and her financier husband, Bader Shammas, welcomed a beautiful, healthy son named Luai. The family is over the moon in love."

In June 2024, Shammas celebrated his first Father's Day. "We love you sooooooo much!!!" Lohan wrote on Instagram in honor of the special day.

Lohan and Shammas are close friends with Steph Curry and Ayesha Curry — so much so that they asked the couple to be Luai's godparents.

During an interview with PEOPLE in March 2024, Lohan shared that double dates with the Currys often look like an evening of “cards, cooking and movies."
