Tony Romo has had some celebrity girlfriends in the past (Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson, etc) but none of them lasted until he met Candice Crawford. The pair started dating back in September of 2009 and everything went smoothly even with Romo constantly getting boo’d as the quarterback of America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys (I wouldn’t touch him in my fantasy football drafts). After a year and a half of dating the pair tied the knot on May 28th, 2011 at an upper class estate that is a popular place for Dallas weddings.
In October of 2011 Tony Romo found a new way to announce that him and Candice were expecting. When talking to a classroom of students one asked if Tony had any kids. He was a little taken aback, but replied ‘Um, no, I don’t have any kids, I’ve actually got on on the way. My wife’s pregnant.’ And that’s how the world found out that the Cowboys QB and Candice were expecting. On April 9th, 2012 Hawkins, a boy, was born.
Now we know about the relationship up to this point let’s take a close look at who Candice Crawford is.
Born on December 16th, 1986, Candice is 7 years younger than Tony. She won the Miss Missouri USA competition in ’08 and placed in the top ten of the Miss USA competition. Candice is also a former reporter for KDAF, which is a Dallas television station. So really, Candice isn’t all that famous. Her brother, Chace Crawford from ‘Gossip Girl’ is is most likely the more famous of the Crawford gang.
