Lance Armstrong welcomes a baby boy

lance armstrong 3 080309
Lance Armstrong and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, welcomed baby boy Max into the world late last night. Armstrong tweeted that little Max weighed in at 7lbs 5oz and that he is 20 inches long. Ahead of the birth, he posted, “Toughness is being redefined today.” About 8 hours later he tweeted “Wassup, world? My name is Max Armstrong and I just arrived. My Mommy is healthy and so am I!,” and included a link to the photo above of Max making the cutest expression while sticking out his tongue! Doesn’t he look like the Kung Fu baby?

Max is Armstrong’s fourth child. He also has son Luke, 9, and twins Isabelle and Grace, 7. Luke and Isabelle and Grace were conceived through artificial insemination using sperm Armstrong banked ahead of his treatment for testicular cancer. Max was conceived naturally though.

Lance will compete in the upcoming 2009 Tour de France, which takes place from July 4th to July 26th. He retired from professional cycling in 2005, but announced his comeback last fall.

Congratulations to Lance and Anna and best wishes for little Max!

  2. Jen says:

    That baby is creepy-looking.

  3. dewdrop says:

    EWWWWWWWWWW………..looks just like his fugly daddy!!!!

  4. Jen says:

    I was trying to figure out who the baby looks like, and I realized that he looks like the Shrek babies.

  5. Kayleigh says:

    Yeah I have to agree with you two. Why would you release that picture of the baby? It would be cute if I was family, but I’m not so it just looks like a possessed baby. Poor little guy 🙁

  6. poppy says:

    Bet he won’t stick around and raise this one either.
    Man I hate this pig, men who have children but don’t want to stick around for the childrens lives should be castrated!!!Oh wait he is halfway there ahahahaha

  7. wildflower says:

    Glad I’m not the only one who thinks this baby is not at all cute. Then again, I’ve never seen a cute baby fresh from the womb. Give him a few weeks. He might look a little less puffy and swollen…and ugly.

  8. me says:

    lol you guys are so wrong he is a new baby and does not deserve all these comments even though i am laughing, he is a cutie or he will be a cutie

  9. Firefly says:

    How can people like this ahole?
    He is such a jerk, I prejudge everyone I see wearing his stupid plastic yellow bracelets as dumba@$$&$.
    I hate absent fathers too!
    I agree cut his other nasty ball off allready!
    Oh and quit saying you are gonna retire do it allready!!

  10. lio says:

    Didn’t he leave his previous girl friend because she wanted a baby and he didn’t?

  11. Samantha says:

    You guys are terrible. That baby is so cute! No baby is ugly, just the people judging.

  12. Iggles says:

    @ lio

    You are correct. He blamed his break up with Sheryl Crow on her desire to have kids. He’s an a**!!!

    Dumps Sheryl because she wants to have a baby then turns around and get some random chick preggers.


  13. Cinderella says:

    He is so fake. He didn’t plan this baby, but he’ll sure use him for positive publicity until he leaves the mother.


  14. filthycute says:

    Samantha, I’d venture to say that this baby is proof that at least *some* babies are ugly.

  15. Jill says:

    Samantha, I beg to differ. There are indeed some really ugly babies out there. =)

  16. cakes says:

    I thought men were completely infertile after testicular cancer? I would suggest DNA testing. The baby looks nothing like him

  17. Jeane says:

    Yikes! Is that a claw?

  18. j. ferber says:

    So the baby’s not great-looking, so what? I also don’t think Lance will commit to this baby (and certainly not to the mother). He’s such a whore.

  19. Me says:

    With a baby that ugly, I would understand he didn’t want to stay around! Good Lord!

  20. jessie says:

    I LOVE that no one posting likes him!! I thought I was the only person that thought this guy was a piece of $hit!

  21. I Choose Me says:

    I love the expression on the little darlin’s face he’s like ‘Was up bitches!’

    So the baby ain’t gorgeous at birth so what? – babies features change as they get older. In my experience how he looks at birth is no real indicator of how he’ll look when he’s older. Hate the Dad all ya want but back off the kid!

  22. Gigohead says:

    I agree they do tend to fill out and get cuter. This baby I have to admit is a little fugly. I’m sorry. I’m not being cruel. The photo is unfortunate.

  23. Listerino says:

    WTF? that thing looks like an alien

  24. Trillion says:

    Did he dump Sheryl? I suspect she caught him cheating and broke it off. She has too much class to air his dirty laundry. Just an intuition.

  25. Lisa says:


  26. Melissa says:

    I think that is one adorable baby! The daddy part is unfortunate.

  27. Patrice says:

    Where do some of you guys get off declaring that he is an absentee father? Lance is very much a part of his children’s lives! He just doesn’t parade them around in front of the media like some desperate fame whore. What I do find unfortunate is that he is going to spend the next eighteen years supporting a child that very likely is NOT HIS (one ball, gone through chemo,children from marriage all concieved through in-vitro due to his diagnosis of sterilization). I’m just saying. DNA tests were invented for a reason my friend. If anyone has ever needed one it is you.

  28. acorn abusers says:

    doucebag has alien baby. he won’t be around so that slutgirlfriend is STOOOPID! he’ll be riding off tomorrow to screw another waitress.

  29. Fruitloops says:

    he is the worst slumbucket around. narcissism is his name.

  30. Pam says:

    Personally, I would be majorly irritated if the father of my newly-born child “tweeted” the world after I gave birth. I don’t want the world in my hospital room, thank you.

  31. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    I don’t care what the kid looks like, his dad is a jerk and I was also wondering how the hell he fathered this one naturally after chemo, IVF for his other three, etc.

  32. orion70 says:

    I’m no fan of this guy, but c’mon, why harp on a newborn? seriously.

    also, I wonder if many of you have actually SEEN a brand new newborn. They are not always pink little cherubs. Their little heads are bent out of shape, they’re bruised, and they look like little aliens. They look nothing like what they will be in a couple of months.

  33. Magsy says:

    Poor kid, he looks like his old man. So much for the old adage all babies are cute.

  34. SweB says:

    Tsk, c’mon people! Most, if not all, newborns are ugly. So some of you might be in for a nasty suprise when junior pops out….Babies don’t really get that cute baby look until around 2-3 months when they had a chance to fill out and their skin has adjusted to being outside the womb.

  35. barneslr says:

    I think he’s a cute little guy. I wonder who his father is?

  36. jayem says:

    That is the cutest picture! Although I really wish people would stop tweeting. You should never broadcast the birth of your child AND what you had for lunch in the same spot.

  37. Eden says:

    Poor baby, his Dad is such a POS!

    I’m sure Anna saw the cash and got pregnant deliberately, good for her. Use that jerk and suck him dry.
