“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. I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything,” Lindsay wrote of her now husband in a July 2, 2022 Instagram post, confirming they had tied the knot.

“I can’t wait to see what the feeling is and what it’s like to just be a mom,” she also told the outlet, admitting that she had a chant for crying more than usual during her pregnancy. “Happy tears. That’s just who I am,” she maintained, adding: “Though now, it’s probably baby emotion.”

She also revealed they plan to raise their baby in Dubai. Though she is originally from the Bronx and was raised in Long Island – where much of her family remains today – today she appreciates the privacy the United Arab Emirates city offers.

Because of strict privacy laws, Dubai has rendered the paparazzi – which infamously trailed Lindsay at the peak of her teen career and subsequent troubles – virtually illegal. Lindsay admitted to Allure that her life in Dubai isn’t full of much excitement or hubbub, and described it as similar to the 1998 Jim Carey film The Truman Show“because it’s the same thing every day.”

“I love it,” she said, adding: “I really love structure because I don’t think I had that when I was young,” and that: “Everything was coming so fast and I had so many things happening. My only structure was filming and being on set.”
