Sheryl Crow’s “biological clock” caused the singer’s 2006 split from cyclist Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France champ reveals in an upcoming biography. Lance, which was written by John Wilcockson, arrives on booksellers’ shelves this summer.
Lance began dating the “Soak Up The Sun” hitmaker his divorce from Kristin Richards — the mother of his three children — in September 2003. Lance and Sheryl announced their engagement in 2005 only to breakup the next year.
“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, Grace and Bella],” Lance says in the book. “Yet we’re up against her biological clock â€” that pressure is what cracked it.”
Sheryl, now 47, adopted a baby boy, Wyatt Steven, in 2008.
