Lance Armstrong on His Breakup with Sheryl Crow

In his new book, Lance, which hits bookshelves this summer, Lance Armstrong reveals the reasons behind his split from rocker Sheryl Crow. Armstrong credits the breakup to Crow's desire for children and his reluctance to become a father again.

In the book Armstrong writes, "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. Yet we're up against her biological clock -- that pressure is what cracked it.

"Because if somebody wants a child -- man, that's the greatest gift you can give to a woman -- so who are you to stand there and say I don't want one. So we were at different points in our lives. We were not compatible on that issue.

"I felt like I wasn't ready . . . I would have been in the future, but not then."

The couple dated from 2003 through 2006. Crow adopted her son, Wyatt Steven, in 2007.

Armstrong is currently expecting a baby with his girlfriend Anna Hansen.
