New York, Dec 24 (ANI): Renowned cyclist and testicular cancer survivor Lance Armstrong is going to be a father again, according to reports.

Lance and his girlfriend Anna Hansen are reportedly expecting a baby, it has emerged.

Diagnosed in 1996 with testicular cancer that had spread to his lungs and brain, doctors gave Armstrong less than a 50 percent chance of survival. Surgery and brutal cycles of chemotherapy saved his life, reports the New York Daily News.

Armstrong and his former wife Kristin had three children using in vitro fertilization with sperm he had banked before his chemotherapy.

CNN has learnt that the sportsman and Hansen, however, are expecting without the use of any artificial fertilization process.

””This is a hopeful thing for testicular cancer survivors,”” CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanja Gupta said.

””It means his body healed from the chemotherapy and surgery, the expert added.

The baby is due in June. (ANI)
