Lindsay Lohan has given birth in Dubai to her first child.

The Parent Trap star and her husband, financier Bader Shammas, are the parents of a “beautiful, healthy son” named Luai, her representative told AP in a statement on Monday.

“The family is over the moon in love,” the statement said.

Lohan, 37, gave birth in Dubai, where the couple live, according to Page Six. Her son's exact birth date was not released.

Luai is an Arabic name that means “shield” or “protector”.

The actress announced her pregnancy in March through a photo posted to Instagram which showed a white onesie emblazoned with “Coming soon”.

She has lived overseas for several years and has been married to Mr Shammas since last year.

The Freaky Friday actress was once a tabloid mainstay, but now keeps a lower public profile.

She has returned to acting, starring in Netflix’s Falling for Christmas last year, and is starring in the streaming service’s coming romantic comedy Irish Wish.

In a June interview with Allure magazine, Lohan said she was thrilled about becoming a mother, and opened up about balancing work and home life.

“I can’t wait to see what the feeling is and what it’s like to just be a mom,” she said. “It’s overwhelming in a good way.”

Freaky Friday co-star Curtis posted about the news on Instagram, "Magic Monday!"

"My movie daughter just made me a movie grandmother. Blessings to Lindsay and Bader for the birth of Luai!"

Lohan sought the guidance of her Freaky Friday co-star.

“I spoke to Jamie Lee Curtis recently, and she was like, ‘You just bring the baby with you and everything will be fine',” she said.

Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan, recently told People magazine that her daughter has wanted to be a mother.

“Lindsay has always loved kids because I love kids and my mother loves kids; I’m one of four,” she said. “We have a big family, so she's always wanted children. And she’s so maternal."
