New baby for Lance

Cycling star Lance Armstrong is expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, in June, Agence France-Presse reported Wednesday.

Mr. Armstrong, 37, - who was engaged to singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow and briefly dated actress Kate Hudson earlier this year - has three children from his previous marriage with Kristin Richards.

After being diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996, he underwent chemotherapy as the cancer spread to other parts of his body. The children with his ex-wife were conceived using sperm Mr. Armstrong had frozen before his cancer treatment. It initially was thought the chemotherapy would leave him unable to have more children. This time, however, Mr. Armstrong and Miss Hansen are expecting without the use of artificial fertilization.

Short takes:

• “American Idol” and Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson will release a new single in mid-January titled “My Life Would Suck Without You,” the Philadelphia Daily News reports. How very Cole Porter.

• Billboard.com reports that Wal-Mart will be the exclusive U.S. retailer for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s “Greatest Hits,” arriving New Year’s Day.

Jennifer Hudson has been announced as one of the Grammy nominees who’ll sing the songs of Neil Diamond at February’s MusiCares Person of the Year gala.The Grammy-week event could mark the first public appearance of the “Dreamgirls” Oscar winner since her mother, brother and nephew were murdered in Chicago in late October.
