Lindsay Lohan has been a bit of a mixed bag as a role model for her sisters and brothers. The 35-year-old actress was certainly looked up to by her younger siblings as she became an instant Hollywood sensation with her breakthrough role in 1998’s Parent Trap. Then came even bigger hits with Freaky Friday (2003), Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004) and Mean Girls (2004). With Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005) under her belt as well, Lindsay took on more serious parts with A Prairie Home Companion, Bobby (both 2006) and Chapter 27 (2007).
However, by the time Georgia Rule came to filming in 2006, Lindsay’s sibling may have seen a different side of the starlet as her series of personal struggles were beginning to make headlines. With DUIs and rehab stints impacting Lindsay’s career, she eventually lost favor in Tinseltown.
Lindsay spoke out about the effect it had on her family. “Growing up my siblings definitely had it harder that most kids at their age, because I was such a public figure that they couldn’t really escape any of the results of the things I did, by mistake, in front of the public eye,” she said during a video interview with Vogue. “So, I feel like I also had to really lead by example as I got older and learned from my mistakes.”
“My family’s so important for me, so anytime that I have an opportunity to involve my sister and my brother, and in anything that I do,” Lindsay added. “Those are the memories that count. Over time you realize how important family is more than anything else in the world,”
More recently, though, she appears to be making a comeback both professionally and personally, as she signed on for a Netflix deal, which includes the upcoming movie Falling For Christmas, and announced her engagement to financier Bader Shammas in November 2021. This all must come as very happy news to Lindsay’s brothers and sisters. Find out all about them, below!
Michael Lohan Jr.
Dina and Michael Lohan Sr. welcomed their first son, Michael Jr., together on December 16, 1987, almost a year after Lindsay was born. Like his older sister, Michael Jr. did some modeling with Ford Models as a tiny tot. He also appeared in Parent Trap with Lindsay, making it his only movie role to date. Leaving the spotlight, Michael Jr. went on to earn a degree in Business Administration from Ithaca College in 2010. On October 29, 2015, he was arrested in New York City on criminal possession of a forged instrument and criminal impersonation for allegedly displaying a forged U.S. government placard on his vehicle to avoid paying for parking.
Lindsay’s younger sister Ali was born on December 22, 1993. Ali was often spotted walking the red carpets with Lindsay and seen at various Hollywood parties, as she tried to make a name for herself in the modeling world. She also dabbled in music, releasing a few singles and working on an albumin 2017. “This is what I wanted to do since I was eight-years-old,” the star revealed to Cosmo.
Dakota Lohan, aka Cody, born on June 16, 1996, was the last child of Dina and Michael Sr. before their divorce in 2007. He followed in Lindsay’s footsteps by becoming a model, singing on to IMG Models with his mom as a manager. Cody also loves sharing photos of his famous sister on Instagram.
Lindsay has a half sister named Ashley Horn who was born to Michael Jr. and Kristi Kauffman, reportedly while Michael was still married to Dina. In 2008, Lindsay wrote on her MySpace, per People, “My father just let my family and [me] know, amongst other [things] that he had another child after my little sister Aliana. Or maybe he had it before Aliana?? Either way, he cheated on my mother and that really sucks.”
Michael Sr. went on to marry Kate Major in 2014. They welcomed two sons together, Lindsay’s half brothers, named Landon, who was born in 2013, and Logan, who was born in 2014.
