Tony Romo and wife Candice Crawford are expecting their first child.
People magazine reports that the Dallas Cowboy, 31, and his wife of five months are having a baby, a fact that Romo shared today during a visit to a high school outside Dallas.
One student asked Romo whether he had children, to which he broke celebrity news by replying: “I’ve actually got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant.” (See video below, which features a subsequent unnecessary close-up of Crawford, who was in the audience, clutching her not-yet-pregnant-looking belly area).
This is good news for Romo and Crawford, the 24-year-old sports journalist, former Miss USA contestant and sister of “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford. But it may not be such great news for Jessica Simpson, ex-girlfriend of Romo and current focus of speculation regarding her own seemingly apparent but still unconfirmed pregnancy.
Any announcement Simpson now makes regarding her child-rearing future will seem like a copycat move, in addition to being a few weeks too late. Unless she announces that she isn’t pregnant. At an elementary school. In a state that isn’t Texas. Yeah, that might be the way to go if she wants to do something really different.
