Cyclist Lance Armstrong and singer Sheryl Crow were once one of the most popular couples around and when the pair split they left their fans wondering why. Now Lance has decided to break his silence and has given his side of the story to author John Wilcockson, whose new biography Lance will hit store shelves in July.

Armstrong proposed to Crow back in 2005, two weeks before her 44th birthday and that evidently did it, pushing Sheryl into mommy overdrive. He said, “She wanted marriage, she wanted children; and not that I didn’t want that, but I didn’t want that at the time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I’d just had kids (Luke, Grace and Bella). Yet we’re up against her biological clock – that pressure is what cracked it.”

Lance is going to become a daddy again next month, the mother-to-be is Anna Hansen. Doctors were concerned that with Armstrong’s aggressive treatment for testicular cancer, he wouldn’t be able to conceive naturally but they proved the medical profession wrong. Photos of Anna and Lance here.

After the split, Sheryl took matters into her own hands and in 2007 she adopted a baby boy, Wyatt Steven Crow. She and her son live on a 154 acre farm outside of Nashville.
