Revealed: Why Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow split

Lance Armstrong reveals the reasons behind the break-up.

Lance Armstrong is finally opening up about his relationship and break-up with ex-fiancée Sheryl Crow.

In new book Lance, published this July, Armstrong tells how Crow’s ticking biological clock became an issue in their relationship.

The cyclist revealed: ‘She wanted marriage, she wanted children; I didn’t want that at that time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I’d just had kids.’

The seven-year age gap (Crow was 41 and Armstrong 34) simply proved too much for the Tour de France champion and in 2006 they announced their break-up, just weeks before their wedding.

The singer went on to adopt a two-week-old boy in May 2007 who she named Wyatt Steven Crow. The mum and son duo now live on a 154-acre farm outside Nashville.

Meanwhile the cycling star came round to the idea of playing daddy again just two years later when it was announced that girlfriend Anna Hansen was pregnant. The pair’s baby is due next month.
