Dina Lohan Pleads Guilty to Driving While Intoxicated, Speeding on Long Island

04/15/2014 at 02:15 PM EDT

Dina Lohan pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to driving while intoxicated and speeding.

The mother of actress Lindsay Lohan – whose own struggles with alcohol are well-documented – appeared in a Nassau District Court in Long Island, N.Y., according to Newsday. She will be sentenced June 3, when prosecutors expect her to be given 100 hours of community service and a nearly $3,000 fine, the paper reports.

State troopers arrested Lohan, 51, in September for going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone. Her blood-alcohol level was 0.2 percent, more than twice the legal limit.

“Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a ‘parent trapped’ with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own,” her lawyer said in a statement at the time, referencing the Disney remake that made her daughter famous.

Man Wearing Superman Hoodie Rescues Baby from Burning Building

04/15/2014 at 02:00 PM EDT

Move over, Man of Steel. There’s a new superhero on the loose – and he’s even a fan of your wardrobe.

Dallas resident Tori Phillips caught a baby dropped from a burning Dallas apartment complex Monday while coincidentally wearing a Superman hoodie, reports NBC 5 in Dallas/Fort Worth.

Phillips, who lost his own apartment in the four-alarm blaze, assisted a family trapped inside an upper floor frantically trying to escape with their baby.

“I seen this family on a patio trying to jump down and they had the baby, they did not want the baby to let go, and I came in and said, ‘I’m right here, I can catch the baby.’ And I was there for the right catch,” he said, adding that another good samaritan helped the parents to safety.

When asked how it felt to return the baby to its parents on solid ground, Phillips replied with characteristic superhero modesty.

“It felt real good,” he said. “They made me very humbled and made me cherish my little ones.”

The experience also seemed to put Philips’s own apartment loss into perspective.

“I know little ones are more important than material things,” he added.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler: Motherhood Is a ‘Test on Every Level’

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is learning just how hard motherhood is. The new mom calls parenthood “the most rewarding job,” but admits it’s not the easiest.

“It’s really hard — it’s a test on every level. The amount of love is incredible, but it’s difficult,” Sigler, 32, told PEOPLE on Wednesday at the mobile launch of Farm Heroes Saga in New York City.

“You don’t get a lot of sleep, it’s exhausting, you have to be on 24/7, [and] you’ve got to breathe through. It’s amazing that a little thing can cause that much frustration sometimes.”

The Dads guest star spends her time with her 7-month-old son, Beau Kyle, and has been able to witness all his major milestones. “I’m with him every single day, all day so [I’m] watching every little milestone,” says Sigler. “He’s starting to crawl which is fun, and he’s really into Mommy, reaching for me and asking for me.”

Her advice for first-time moms? “Listen to what everybody warns you about, but also don’t have expectations of what they should or shouldn’t be doing. Let your child grow at his or her own pace. Try and take a step back because it does go really fast,” she shares.

One thing Sigler loves about being a mom is feeling “like you deserve a medal every day. You feel like you should get props when you walk out of the house [and] you’re just alive and breathing.”

Even with motherhood being tough, she has the help and support of her fiancé Cutter Dykstra. “Dad’s amazing – he’s playing baseball so he’s on the road [and] we’re doing a little long distance, but he’s a really good dad,” says Sigler.

She adds: “[He’s] really hands on and it’s pretty sexy to see a guy with a baby.”
