Lindsay married her childhood sweetheart Sam in June 2015, six months after announcing their engagement. At the time, the former contestant on “So You Think You Can Dance” told Us Weekly, “I’ve loved Sam since I was 16 years old and today I officially get to spend the rest of my life with him – through giggles and tears, and every moment in between!”
