Lindsay Lohan, who is reportedly pregnant, according to Dad Michael Lohan, was spotted smoking cigarettes with Israeli socialite Hofit Golan on a luxury yacht in Sardinia. Is this hot mess ready to be a mom?
She’s in the middle of a fractious breakup with fiancé Egor Tarabasov.
Lohan turned to Golan for advice and comfort after she melted down last week on social media over claims Tarabosov was cheating on her.
That’s when she first revealed she was pregnant. Fans didn’t know what to make of the drama queen’s claims.
Her reps could neither confirm nor deny her condition, according to London’s Daily Mail.
But dad Michael Lohan told PageSix that Lindsay had texted him with the message, “Daddy I’m pregnant.”
He said he didn’t know how far along she was.
Whether its a play for attention, or the real thing, is still open to question. But if she is pregnant, she’s raising red flags over her ability to be a fit mother.
Smoking during pregnancy can double the chance that a baby will be born too early, or underweight. Smoking also more than doubles the risk of stillbirth, according to medical references.
Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes affect the placenta, which supplies a baby with food and oxygen during pregnancy. It some cases, it can cause the placenta to separate prematurely, causing bleeding.
The condition threatens both the baby and mother, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Smoking also raises the risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and birth defects, like a cleft lip or cleft palate, according to the CDC.
The federal agency estimates that 10 percent of pregnant women continue to smoke even up to the last three months of pregnancy. Another 55 percent quit while pregnant.
Lohan is known to chain smoke and has been smoking since she was a teenager.
On Sunday, Lohan blasted Taraboasov on social media claiming he cavorted with a “Russian hooker” at a night club while telling her he was somewhere else. Police were reportedly called to their London home amid an intense argument.
Yesterday, Lindsay apologized on Instagram.
“I was acting out of fear and sadness,” she wrote. “We all make mistakes. Sadly mine have always been so public. Maybe things can be fixed. Maybe not. I hope they can,” she added.
Lindsay fled to Europe to get her life back on track and avoid tabloid publicity. She began dating Taraboasov last year; they got engaged in April.
