DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – Actress Lindsay Lohan has told her Instagram followers that she is engaged.
Lohan announced her engagement to boyfriend Bader Shammas and showed off a traditional oval diamond ring with a photo of the couple looking happy, locked in an embrace.
“My love. My life. My family. My future,” read the message.
The 35-year-old “Mean Girls” star has been based for several years in the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, dotted with skyscrapers. Hollywood celebrities seeking to escape the limelight have long flocked to the flashy emirate, where there are no paparazzi to follow the many VIPs who hide in luxurious villas on the man-made island in palm tree shape of the city.
Little is known about Shammas, a Dubai resident whose LinkedIn page says he is assistant vice president of international wealth management at Credit Suisse. Before joining the Swiss bank which serves some of the richest people in the world, he worked at BNP Paribas, one of the largest French banks, in Kuwait and Bahrain.

Since moving to Dubai, Lohan has kept a low profile and said her party days are behind her.
She is slated to appear in a holiday romance comedy released by Netflix, starring singer-songwriter Chord Overstreet. On Instagram, she also said she was launching a new podcast to share “intimate conversations with thought leaders and friends.”
