Anna Hansen finally became Lance Armstrong's wife after 14 years of a romantic relationship. The duo has been engaged since 2017 and already shares two children, Olivia Marie and Max.

"Anna, you have been my absolute rock the past 14 years, and let me be clear, I would not have survived them without you. I am so proud of the couple we have become – it took us doing the work, the really hard work," he said.

Armstrong, a former professional cyclist, exchanged his vows with Hansen in Chateau La Coste, France, surrounded by close friends and family.

When Hansen isn't busy with her yoga, she is preoccupied with caring for the family she built with Armstrong, including their two kids, Olivia and Max. The couple has a nine-year age gap and reportedly began dating in 2008.

In September 2020, her then-fiance appeared in one of her videos, "Yoga for Cyclists with Lance Armstrong and George Hincapie." Hansen eventually launched a website, Move with Anna, for all those who are interested in the craft and want a variety of yoga classes. Hansen believes that yoga is for all kinds of people, regardless of whether they are new to the activity or already experts.

She also utilizes her Instagram account to update followers about new video releases and inspire them with motivational quotes. One of her posts quoted Jane Goodall, "What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."

When Hansen isn't busy with yoga, she is preoccupied with caring for the family she built with Armstrong, including their two kids, Olivia and Max. Although the couple has a nine-year age gap, their relationship seems to be getting stronger since they reportedly began dating in 2008.

Hansen has been vocal about her love for Armstrong through social media with several posts about their relationship. In one of her photos, Hansen said:

“Never been a dull moment with you, and I wouldn't change a thing! You're still the hardest person to buy gifts for though, remembering I gave you a bottle of wine this day 11 years ago because I knew at least it wouldn't go to waste!"

WHO IS LANCE ARMSTRONG'S EX-WIFE KRISTIN ARMSTRONG?

Before Armstrong married Hansen, he was wed to Kristin Armstrong, a Memphis, Tennessee-born athlete who shares the same passion for cycling. Kristine rose to fame as the "Most decorated female cyclist in US history" and "best time-trialist in sports history," as written on her website.

She is also the only female American athlete who won the time trial event in three consecutive Olympic Summer Games in Beijing, London, and Rio.

Apart from Kristin, Armstrong was also in a relationship with Sheryl Crow, whom he met in October 2003. In less than two years, the pair got engaged when the cyclist proposed in the middle of Sun Valley, Idaho's lake.

Kristin and Armstrong tied the knot in 1998 and divorced in 2003. Throughout their five-year marriage, the couple had three children, twin daughters Isabelle and Grace and a son named Luke.

Following her divorce, Kristine opened up to Glamour about how she felt she had lost herself after getting married. She said:

“If I were to do things over again, I wouldn't have thrown myself so irrevocably into my new life. I would have guarded the things that made me feel like me – the places, the friends – and above all, I would have spoken up about my needs."

Although her marriage failed, Kristin was able to go through the rest of her days holding on to her Catholic faith. "Circumstances in life often take us places that we never intended to go. We visit some places of beauty, others of pain and desolation," she said. "I never imagined that divorce would be part of my life history or my family's legacy."

"We took this boat out to the middle of the lake, and this is one of these little fishing boats with the motor behind going," Armstrong told Oprah Winfrey, as In Style reported. "It ran out of gas in the middle of the lake, and so I thought, you know, we're stuck here. I may as well ask her now."

The wedding never materialized, and both parties have since moved on with their lives. Both Crow and Armstrong are now living happily as parents to their children.
