Champion cyclist Lance Armstrong is nothing if not unconvetional. Perhaps that's why he decided to announce the birth of his son on Thursday night not through a rep or through a statement to the press, but on Twitter.

Shortly before midnight ET on Thursday, Lance posted a link to a baby photo (scroll down for the pic) and the following message on his personal Twitter page:

"Wassup, world? My name is Max Armstrong and I just arrived. My Mommy is healthy and so am I!"

That was followed about another later with another Tweet:

"@maxarmstrong1 weighed in at 7lbs5oz and is 20 inches long."

As of early Thursday morning, the @maxarmstrong Twitter account was locked and had no followers. But then again, the baby is only a few hours old. Give him a day or two before he joins the rest of the Tweeting celebrities.

Max's mom is Lance's girlfriend Anna Hansen; he's already the proud father of three children with his ex-wife, Kristin.
