What’s Lindsay Lohan up to, besides plenty of sober fun i.e. getting new extensions and running out for cupcakes? How about a pregnancy scare to keep her in the news? Star magazine’s Nov. 12 edition reports that after her period was late, Lindsay’s snowboarder boyf Riley Giles, popped the question.
“Just when Lindsay Lohan thought she was back on track after finally getting sober, the actress got a major shock that could have threatened it all: According to a source, Lindsay was days ?late? and feared she was pregnant with boyfriend Riley Giles? baby.
?Lindsay was terrified,? the source tells Star. ?She?s also gained weight, and she started worrying that it was from being pregnant.?
And while having a child with someone she loves is something that Lindsay has always dreamed about, it?s not the right time, says the source. ?She just figured out how to get sober – she?s certainly not ready to be responsible for a child now!?
But when Lindsay, 21, broke down and told Riley she thought she might be pregnant, his reaction was not quite what she expected. ?He was actually pretty excited,? says the source. ?And he did was he thought was right and proposed on the spot.?
Lindsay?s response? ?It literally took her breath away,? says the source. ?She was touched, but she knew it was not the right thing to do and turned him down. She told him that she cares for him deeply, but they weren?t ready to get married. Riley totally understood.?
A few days later, Lindsay?s fears were put to rest when she finally got her period.”
Personally, I don’t see getting pregnant being “the major shock that could have threatened it all.” I see Lindsay (and Dina and Michael) playing that up to the fullest extent, with People covering her baby shower and Hollywood maternity boutiques clamoring for her to wear their tunics and leggings. In fact, being pregnant might might encourage her to stay sober a la Nicole Richie, but that’s a terrible reason to get pregnant. That, and publicity. Either way, let’s be thankful Lindsay is “focusing on her career” and not bringing a new life into the world. Also, let’s be thankful for Star‘s thrilling coverage (“Riley totally understood.”) as they continue to be a step ahead of US Weekly.
