Cancer survivor expecting child with girlfriend

Cycling ace LANCE ARMSTRONG has received good news in time for Christmas - the sports star is reportedly set to be a dad for the fourth time.

The testicular cancer survivor is said to be "thrilled" after naturally conceiving a child with girlfriend Anna Hansen.

A source tells gossip blogger Perez Hilton, "Lance and Anna have been quietly dating since July. They met through Lance's charity work. Anna works at a non-profit (charity) for cancer survivors... They couldn't be happier."

The seven-time Tour De France champion had his sperm frozen after he was diagnosed with cancer in 1996. His three other children with ex-wife Kristin Richards were conceived through in vitro fertilisation.
