Lindsay Lohan calls out 'so much pressure' on mothers to 'look good' after giving birth

Lindsay Lohan calls out 'so much pressure' on mothers to 'look good' after giving birth

Lindsay Lohan says there is “so much pressure” on women to lose their baby weight and “look good” soon after giving birth.

The former child star, 37, welcomed a son, Luai, with her husband Bader Shammas last July. The couple, who live in Dubai, have been together since 2020 and tied the knot in July 2022.

Hollywood stars are reportedly using weight loss injection Ozempic in an effort to shed the extra pounds, a bandwagon which Lohan says she won’t be jumping on.

"Everyone's getting so thin now. I feel like everything always comes full circle again, so this is that moment, and this, too, shall pass. But it does seem like there's pressure," Lohan told Bustle in a new interview.

Lohan added that she was "so attached" to her son that the last thing on her mind was working out on a treadmill.

"I feel like we put so much pressure on ourselves to have to look 'good' so soon,” Lohan said, adding that women look "so beautiful" postpartum.

The actress can currently be seen starring in fantasy romantic comedy Irish Wish on Netflix.

Lohan plays a woman named Maddie, who attends a wedding in Ireland as a bridesmaid to her best friend. Maddie is in love with the groom-to-be, though.

The flick marks the US star’s second collaboration with the streaming giant after the 2022 holiday film Falling for Christmas.

She has teased that one of her next projects will be a sequel to the 2003 Disney film Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis.
