Lance Armstrong is getting married to long-time girlfriend Anna Hansen.

Armstrong, 45, popped the question Tuesday evening at Lake Austin. He posted a photo (taken by Austin photo journalist Elizabeth Kruetz) showing Hansen sitting in his lap, a sparkling engagement ring on her finger as the sun set in the background.

“She said ….. YES!!!!” he posted on Instagram.

The couple met through charity work and started dating nine years ago. They have two children together – Max, 7, and Olivia, 6. They spend summers in Aspen and the rest of the year in Austin, where the children attend school.

Now word yet on when or where the wedding will take place.

Armstrong was previously married to Kristin Armstrong, with whom he had three children – Luke, 17, and twins Grace and Isabelle, 15. They divorced in 2003.
