Lance Armstrong and Longtime Girlfriend Anna Hansen Are Engaged
Congratulations are in order for former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong and Anna Hansen, his girlfriend of nearly ten years. On Tuesday evening, the couple announced their engagement with an adorable Instagram photo, People reports.
"She said..... YES!!!!" Armstrong caption a photo in which Hansen shows off a sparkling new ring. There's no word on how the athlete proposed, but we do know a bit about where. He geotagged the photo to Lake Austin, a popular locale in Texas Hill Country, and the two appear to be sitting on a boat as the sun sets behind them. Sounds like the makings of a memorable proposal to us!
The pair are parents to two children, Max, 7, and Olivia, 6. The groom-to-be also has three other children, Luke, 17, and twin daughters Grace and Isabelle, 15, with his former wife, Kristin Richard. There's no word on wedding plans just yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if Armstrong and Hansen want their day to be a family affair.
Armstrong and Hansen celebrated their nine-year anniversary in January, and the athlete had nothing but sweet words to share about his then-girlfriend. "Nine years ago today I met this amazing woman in Denver, Colorado. As y'all can imagine, the last half of those nine years hasn't exactly been smooth. She's been a pillar of strength and love for me and our entire family. Happy Anniversary babe. I love you!"
