People Magazine has confirmed that Lance Armstrong and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, are expecting their first child together in June 2009. This will be Lance’s 4th child.
“Anna and I are thrilled to confirm that we are expecting in June and our families are ecstatic and grateful,” he says in a statement. “We are very much looking forward to what 2009 brings on many fronts.
We appreciate respecting our privacy, as we are both eager to celebrate the holidays as a family.”
Lance’s children were conceived through in vitro fertilization with sperm frozen prior to Armstrong undergoing chemotherapy.
Lance and Anna’s baby was unplanned (obviously), and indicates that after all these years, testicular cancer survivor Lance’s sperm are working again. This is rare and only happens to a small handful of survivors.
That must have been quite a surprise for the both of them. Congratulations Lance and Anna.
