Lance Armstrong and Kate Hudson parted company in July 2008. The cycling ace and seven time Tour de France winner apparently got right back up on that dating horse and began dating a woman named Anna Hansen. They have announced that they are expecting a baby together.
Armstrong, a cancer survivor, met Anna through his charity work. She is a Program Manager and Recruiter for First Descents. A Colorado native, Anna loves nothing more than being outdoors, and Vail provides the perfect setting for her favorite activities which include mountain biking and snowboarding.
First Descents was started in 2001, providing whitewater kayaking and other outdoor experiences to promote emotional, psychological and physical healing for young adults with cancer. In 2009 they will host nine weeklong programs in six different states. They are always looking for volunteers and soliciting donations to support their good works.
Anna Hansen graduated with a degree in Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She has been a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital in Denver and serves on the board of directors of Camp Wapiyapi, a foundation providing support for families with childhood cancer.
Armstrong reportedly had his sperm frozen before he underwent cancer treatment in 1996. He and his wife Kristin Richards were able to conceive three children through in-vitro fertilization. The couple were divorced at the end of 2003 and share custody of Luke, 9, and twin daughters Isabelle and Grace, 7.
The surprising news this time around is that he and Anna conceived naturally and Armstrong is said to be “thrilled”.
