Following on from Lindsay Lohan’s very public fight with her 23-year-old fiancé (ex-fiancé?) Egor Tarabasov, Lindsay’s dad has now come forward claiming the 30-year-old actress is pregnant.

Michael, 56, told Page Six TV on Wednesday that Lindsay had texted him, ‘Daddy, I’m pregnant’. ‘She texted it to me and told me… I don’t know [how far along she is],’ he explains.

Lindsay posted, then deleted, this tweet over the weekend.

But while a friend claims the star is ‘saying she is pregnant, but it could be for attention,’ Michael insists he believes her.

‘She tells me she is and I have no reason not to believe her… I was a little bit taken aback, but it was to be expected. She’s 30 years old. She wants to have babies. She loves kids,’ he says. ‘She’s had relationships with people in the past who have children and she’s very close to them. She’s got a very maternal instinct.’

However, photos have since emerged of Lindsay partying on a yacht with friends, smoking – hardly behaviour a pregnant woman would be engaging in.

Dear friends. I'm good and well. #ATM I am taking time for myself with good friends. I am sorry that I've exposed certain private matters recently. I was acting out of fear and sadness… We all make mistakes. Sadly mine have always been so public. I have done a lot of soul searching in the past years, and I should have been more clear minded rather than distract from the good heart that I have. Social media comes with the territory of the business and the world we now live in. My intentions were not meant to send mixed messages. Maybe things can be fixed… Maybe not.. I hope they can. But I am 30 years old and I do deserve a #GENTLEgiant Life is about love and light. Not anger 🙏🏻 Thank you to those who stand by my side

When her father was asked for his thoughts on her behaviour, he responded, ‘Well, people smoke when they’re pregnant. People drink when they’re pregnant. Lindsay doesn’t drink… I’m very proud of her because through this whole thing most people might have relapsed. They might have had a drink or taken pills or something. She stayed clean and sober through this whole situation.’

Something seems a bit off to us…
