Tony Romo, the 30-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback, is engaged to Candice Crawford, the sister of actor Chace Crawford, according to People Magazine. It has been reported that Romo met the 24-year-old sports anchor and former 'Miss Missouri' shortly after splitting from his former girlfriend Jessica Simpson.
Romo popped the question while celebrating Crawford's birthday with her family and friends at the Five Sixty restaurant in Dallas on 16th December 2010. The announcement took many by surprise, given that little is known about Crawford. She is currently a sports reporter on the local Dallas television station KDAF-TV and was named 'Miss Missouri' in 2008 after finishing second the previous year. She went on to compete in the prestigious 'Miss World' pageant and managed to make the top ten.
The news comes after another of JESSICA SIMPSON's exes recently announced their engagement. Her former husband Nick Lachey confirmed in October that he is to marry girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo. Simpson spoke about her relationship with Romo when she appeared on the David Letterman show earlier this year, saying, "Tony is great - still a friend of mine. I still look at his cute butt in the outfit - uniform".
