Lance Armstrong and Halle Berry are some of the most recognized people in the world. Not only do they share fame, but many other things as well. Some of the things they have in common are a love for kids, health issues, and having been married to someone who does not share their level of celebrity. Here are the reasons why this couple should begin dating, and where they should go for a memorable first date.
Lance Armstrong is most well-known as a cycling champion. But he is also a cancer survivor, father of three, and master at marketing the Livestrong bracelets that have become so commonplace. Armstrong has accomplished what nobody else has; he has won seven back to back Tour de France championships. But perhaps one of the biggest defining moments of his life came when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He has three children with his ex-wife, and despite breaking off an engagement with singer Sheryl Crow, supported her when he heard she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. He is very popular with kids who like his story of overcoming cancer to win more cycling championships than anyone ever has before.
Halle Berry is also considered at the height of her career, has a daughter, and has suffered her own health problems. She is most well-known as an actress, but she has also done some modeling in the past. Throughout her film career, she has been married twice, once to a singer and once to a baseball player. But first she has had to overcome her own health problems; Type 1 diabetes. But just like Armstrong, she did not let a diagnosis stop her from accomplishing what she wanted to do in life. It was through her second marriage that she became a mom. Her husband at the time, Eric Benét, had a daughter named India. She has adopted India, and reportedly loved being a mom.
As a couple, they would be able to combine their star power to bring attention to important health issues. Separately, Berry understands what life with an athlete is like, and although the relationship with her first husband did not end well, if she can get past the negative ideas, she is better equipped to deal with the pressures of it. Also, it would allow her to be a step-mom type figure to his kids. This is obviously a role she is comfortable with. Armstrong would gain some clout in Hollywood. With his cycling career having ended, he will need a way to fill the rest of his days. With his many Hollywood friends, his comfort in front of the camera, his good looks, and his several appearances in movies, this would be a natural step.
Although not for their first date, I predict that if they begin a relationship, they will meet at the Kid’s Choice awards. Kids seem to be drawn to both of them, and they make frequent appearances at the awards. It would be a friendly, no-pressure way to meet, and their playful natures would make it a natural match. For a first date, they should consider a quiet, out of the way restaurant.
Although they’ve suffered some setbacks in their love lives in the past, neither should let it hold them back from experiencing love again in the future. Their love for kids and their ability to have a lot of fun while getting the most out of life can bring them together as a beautiful couple. With their combined star power, they could use their fame to highlight health issues that are important to them, and help do some good in the world.
