Lindsay and Amanda – who herself has kids Nina, six, and Thomas, two, with husband Thomas Sadoski – starred together in the iconic Tina Fey film in 2004, alongside fellow "Plastics" Lacey Chabert and Rachel McAdams.
Now, as the The Parent Trap actress prepares to become a first-time mom, her former co-star expressed her excitement for her, and revealed how at first the expecting star kept her pregnancy from her.
During an appearance on Good Morning America, when the upcoming 20th anniversary of Mean Girls came up, Amanda exclaimed: "[Lindsay is] gonna have a baby! We're all moms!"
She then revealed: "I had spoken with Lindsay… I interviewed her, actually – it was really fun – when she was like, newly pregnant, but she didn't tell me."
The actress explained that she asked Lindsay whether she would want to have kids one day, revealing that the fellow star only answered with an excited yes, not revealing that she was in fact already pregnant with her first child.
She said: "She actually was pregnant when I spoke with her and when I found out… It was so [sweet]." When Lindsay announced her pregnancy with a March 14 Instagram post, sharing a photo of a little white onesie with "Coming soon…" written on it, Amanda commented on the post: "This is WONDERFUL NEWS!!"
During the morning show appearance, Amanda further said: "She seems ready to pop, I'm really happy," adding: "We all get to do this, I mean it's nice that we're in a new part of our lives, and we really appreciate that movie."
Amanda shares her two kids with fellow actor Thomas, who she married in 2017, while her co-star Rachel, who played the infamous Regina George, shares a son and a daughter, who she keeps very private, with longtime partner Jamie Linden. Meanwhile Lacey, who played Gretchen Wiener and has since become a Hallmark Channel mainstay, married David Nehdar in 2013, and they share six-year-old daughter Julia.
Lindsay and her husband Bader, a financier who has previously worked for Credit Suisse, currently live in Dubai, where she moved back in 2018. The two secretly married in the summer of 2022, after announcing their engagement in November of 2021. "My love. My life. My family. My future," she wrote of her now husband at the time in an Instagram post when she confirmed that the two had married.
Following the news of her pregnancy, the was quickly flooded with congratulatory messages from fans and celebrities alike, with Kathy Hilton – whose own daughter Paris Hilton also recently welcomed her first child, Phoenix Barron – writing: "I am so happy for you," while Nancy Meyers, her director from The Parent Trap – her breakthrough role playing twins Hallie and Annie – said: "Lindsay!!!!!! I'm so excited for you!"
