Former American cyclist Lance Armstrong announced on Instagram on Tuesday that he was going to tie the knot with partner Anna Hansen, after popping the question to her on a boat in Texas. The 45-year-old, who already is a father to two children Max (seven) and Olivia (six) with Hansen, captioned the picture, “She said..... YES!!!!".


She said..... YES!!!!

For Armstrong, it will be a silver lining in what has been a difficult number of years for the American. Since confessing to using performance-enhancing drugs in an interview with Opera in 2013, he has been stripped of his accolades and banned from the Olympic sports for life.

Armstrong, who was previously married to the editor of Runner’s World magazine Kristin Richard before splitting in 2003, has a son and two daughters with her. After his first failed marriage, he dated singer Sheryl Crow and designer Tony Burch.

It finally appears that Armstrong has settled down after meeting Hansen through his charity work. Hansen has also been steadfast in her support for Armstrong despite his doping scandals.
