But despite being used to the spotlight on the athletic field, Lance Armstrong had a bit of trouble with it when it came to relationships.The disgraced 45-year-old cyclist opened up about his relationship with Sheryl Crow during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show on Monday.
He was asked by the host on the Sirius XM program if his head got big when he dated the If It Makes You Happy hitmaker as he replied: 'Yeah, it was a roll man.'It was a good ride. Obviously it didn't work out, but I think and I hope she's happy. He has two more children - seven-year-old son Max and six-year-old daughter Olivia - with current girlfriend Anna Hansen bringing his total to five.
Is it, I wonder, frustrating to Crow that she is forever dragged back into the controversy surrounding her ex? And she said, ‘No, you’re a woman, and people always want to know what you’re wearing and what was he like.’ ” For the record, the lean, glowing Crow is dressed down in tight jeans and loose blouse.
Her hair is, by her own cheerful admission, rather like that of her great friend and mentor Stevie Nicks – in the Fleetwood Mac singer’s Seventies glory, all feathered and flouncy.
Armstrong and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, 28, are expecting their first child next month.
He is one of the most scrutinized athletes of the last twenty years.
You meet with these families and see how beautiful and warm it is for children. Us: Are you raising your boys with an understanding of how important it is to give back? We have a long friendship and he puts on a great show. I think we have a really great chemistry that is pretty special. SC: The tour finishes at the end of September and I'll start recording a new album in Nashville in October.
