Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, notable here for being Jessica Simpson's one-time beau, is engaged.
According to Us, Romo is engaged to Candice Crawford -- a one-time Miss Missouri and graduate of the University of Missouri who is currently a sports reporter for Dallas TV station KDAF-TV. She's also the sister of "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford. The two have been dating for a little over a year and Romo apparently proposed on Thursday -- coincidentally Crawford's 24th birthday.
