Sheryl Crow adopts!
Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, who had breast cancer surgery early last year after a breakup with champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, said on Friday she had adopted a 2-week-old baby boy.
The Grammy-winning recording star, known for such hits as "All I Wanna Do," "Soak Up the Sun," and "If It Makes You Happy," announced the adoption with a short message to fans posted on her official Web site.
"His name is Wyatt (after my dad) Steven (after my little brother and Scooter) and we are enjoying some very private family time," she wrote. Scooter is the nickname of her longtime manager and friend, Steven Weintraub.
No other details about her newly adopted son were revealed, but Crow's publicist said the child was born in the United States.
Crow, 45, postponed a North American concert tour in February of last year to undergo "minimally invasive" surgery for breast cancer. She announced during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in October that she was cancer-free.
The singer's surgery came about a month after she and seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, himself a cancer survivor, broke off their engagement, ending a high-profile two-year relationship.
