Lindsay Lohan Mom Ready to Meet the In-Laws

EXCLUSIVE

Dina Lohan approves of daughter Lindsay's new boyfriend, but no word yet if HIS family approves of Dina.

We got DiLo outside FOX Studios in NYC, and she copped to being totally smitten with Egor Tarabasov, who perhaps will someday plant a Russian sprout-nik inside her daughter.

Dina told us what will likely be the NEXT step for Lindsay and Egor -- a face-to-face meeting between their parents. Check out why mama's confidence is so high about that meeting.

Baby steps, Dina.
