Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only one in the family picking up awards.

Dina Lohan, the actress’ mother, will be honored by Mingling Moms as one of Long Island’s Top 20 Moms, the organization announced Monday.

For what, you ask?

Well, there's nothing deep behind it -- it's just for rearing Lindsay herself.

“We’re just honoring celebrities' moms on Long Island,” a spokesperson from Mingling Moms tells OK!. “It’s something for Mother’s Day. It’s a list of mothers from Long Island who have raised superstar children.”

Dina, who’s trying to launch another luminous career for her 14-year-old daughter Ali, will be present to pick up her award at the ceremony on Tuesday at Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage, Long Island. It is unknown if Lindsay or any of her children will be in attendance.

“You never know those things,” the spokesperson tells OK!. “Plans change, but Dina will be there.”

In addition to 45-year-old Dina, who will star in her own this summer, other Long Island mamas singled out for producing A-list offspring include Carol Baldwin (mom to the Baldwin brothers), Roslind Nyman Joel (mother of Billy Joel), Shelley Stevens Hershlag (Natalie Portman’s mom), Rosalie Macchio (Ralph Macchio’s mother) and Patricia Vian, mother of .

New mom Jennifer Lopez, who lives on the Island with hubby Marc Anthony and gave birth to twins Max and Emme in North Shore Hospital, will also receive the Celebrity Mom of the Year Honor for putting the media spotlight on the 118-mile long strip.

But these famous-by-association moms shouldn't feel too special.

“It’s not just about the celebrities – it’s more about Long Island moms,” the rep says. “Over 1,000 Long Island moms will be at the Gala tomorrow evening as well.”
