“Best. Day. Ever. Married the love of my life @annahansenarmstrong,” Armstrong shared. “So special having our kids there as well. It was an evening full of laughter and plenty of joyful tears. 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, and I am so glad that we did. I love you immensely and will always be here for you and our family. “I’d be remiss if I didn’t think our best bud aka ‘Reverend’ @chad_mountain for officiating the ceremony. As well as the great @lizkreutz for making sure these beautiful memories were captured.”

“Hope you are all having an excellent summer – I sure as hell am,” Armstrong said in conclusion. Just two years after Armstrong parted from his fiancée Kristin in February 2006, he started to date Hansen in July 2008. Max, the couple’s son, is 13 years old, and Olivia is 11 years old. Armstrong won the Tour de France seven times in a row from 1999 to 2005, making him one of the greatest American sports figures ever.

In addition to his numerous accomplishments, the cycling legend won the Tour DuPont in 1995 and 1996, the Clásica de San Sebastián in 1995, and the UCI Road World Championship in 1993. The US Anti-Doping Agency’s inquiry revealed that Armstrong took performance-enhancing substances throughout his career, which damaged his reputation.

Armstrong has acknowledged his doping involvement after years of denial. His professional cycling career was over after he was given a lifetime ban from all sports that uphold the World Anti-Doping Code.
