Washington, May 9 (ANI): American racing cyclist Lance Armstrong has revealed in his forthcoming book that he and former fiancé Sheryl Crow called it quits because Crow was keen to have a baby while Lance was not.
Lance divulges in his book that, as he had just got out of his marriage, he did not have any immediate plans to have a baby with former fiancé Sheryl Crow, as her biological clock was ticking.
“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, 9, and twins Grace and Bella, 7],” Us weekly quoted Lance as stating in his book.
“Yet we’re up against her biological clock — that pressure is what cracked it,” Lance added.
Lance revealed that the former duo even visited a counsellor but to no avail, as Crow was bent upon having a baby.
“If somebody wants a child — man, that’s the greatest gift you can give to a woman — … who are you to stand there and say I don’t want one?” he says. “So we were at different points in our lives. We were not compatible on that issue,” Lance writes.
“I felt like I wasn’t ready … I would have been in the future, but not then,” Lance added.
After the split, Crow went on to adopt a two-week-old boy, Wyatt, and declared that she was loving each moment of her motherhood.
Lance announced in December that he was expecting a baby with girlfriend Anna Hansen. (ANI)
