Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Tony Romo who are expecting their first child. The couple married in June in a lavish ceremony accompanied by the Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s teammates. Now baby makes three, as Romo announced the good news a visit to Cedar Hill High School in Dallas, a student asked if he has any children, “Um, no, I don’t have any kids, I’ve actually got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant,” Romo said.
Romo’s wife Candice Crawford is a former Miss Missouri and is the sister of Chace Crawford. The timing is interesting, as Romo’s ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson, and our jersey chaser of the month, is also expecting her first child. In a weird six degrees of separation, Romo once dated Carrie Underwood, the ex-girlfriend of his now brother-in-law.
Girls hearts are breaking everywhere across America (Jessica Simpson)… Tony Romo is officially off the market. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback who is known more for his good looks than his throwing arm married Candice Crawford. Candice is the younger sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford and a former Miss Missouri.
The couple enlisted the wedding planner for NFL quarterbacks Todd Fiscus, who also planned Eli Manning’s wedding. Details are mum on the ceremony but Fiscus did say, “We did lots of man food. I have a lot of football players to feed.”
As for the guest list, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in attendance, who had to clear his attendance with the NFL because of the lockout restrictions. The lockout is also affecting the couple’s honeymoon plans despite Romo having extra time on his hands. ”We’ll see. We haven’t really gotten there yet. We’re taking a day at a time with the lockout. We (are not) even sure if we’re gonna get to go (on) one,” Candice said.
In a twisted six-degrees of separation, Romo dated American Idol country singer Carrie Underwood who also dated Candice’s brother Chace Crawford.
Tony Romo is engaged to former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford, who happens to be Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford’s younger sister. The pair have been dating since Romo broke up with Jessica Simpson last summer. If Simpson, Romo and Nick Lachey are all engaged, does that mean John Mayer is next? The 30-year old quarterback proposed at Candice’s 24th birthday party. Candice does double duty as a jersey chaser and sports reporter.
How is this for incestuous six degrees of separation… Romo used to date Carrie Underwood, who in turn also dated Chace Crawford. Welcome to the team Candice!
Jessica Simpson is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson. The pair began dating back in May, when Johnson was still married and in the process of getting a divorce form his wife.
Simpson’s rep confirmed the news to JustJared.com, “We’re thrilled to confirm that it’s true! They are engaged.”
In his short lived NFL career, Johnson played five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and was released by the New Orleans Saints in 2008.
Johnson’s and Simpson’s relationship has apparently caused a rift between Simpson and her close friend and hair stylist Kevin Paves. Paves is rumored to not like Johnson and thinks he is dating Simpson for fame. Johnson was supposed to start business school at the prestigious Wharton School but dropped out to stay close to Simpson.
The couple’s engagement comes just one week after Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey proposed to his longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo.
This is not Simpson’s first stint as a jersey chaser. Simpson had a two-year relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo before he broke up with her on her 30th birthday.
Congrats to Eric and Jess! Keep chasing ;)
