Years after his split with singer Sheryl Crow, cyclist Lance Armstrong is coming clean about the reason the two called off their engagement. In his new book Lance (out in July), Armstrong places the blame on one thing: baby fever.
“She wanted marriage, she wanted children; and not that I didn’t want that, but I didn’t want that at that time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I’d just had kids [Luke, Grace and Bella],” Armstrong, 37, revealed in the book excerpt published in the NY Post. “Yet we’re up against her biological clock — that pressure is what cracked it.”
Though he announced in December that he’s expecting a baby with girlfriend Anna Hansen, during his relationship with Crow he “wasn’t ready” and “would have been in the future, but not then.”
The couple did try to work through their issues though, even going to counseling. “There’s no way to counsel that situation,” he admitted. “Because if somebody wants a child — man, that’s the greatest gift you can give to a woman — so who are you to stand there and say I don’t want one. So we were at different points in our lives. We were not compatible on that issue.”
