Tony Romo, ex-beau of Jessica Simpson has proposed to Candice Crawford, making it a double of Simpson’s exes on the marriage trail.
Currently crocked with a broken collarbone, Romo, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback has been dating Candice Crawford since September 2009.
His injury may have put him out of the game since October, but that hasn’t stopped him dropping to one knee in order to pop the question.
Crawford was a one-time “Miss Missouri” and is sister to Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford. She was reportedly over the moon when Romo asked for her hand in marriage in Dallas last Thursday – giving her the ultimate present for her 24th birthday.
Romo was involved with Jessica Simpson for almost two years, and he clearly has a birthday issue as he chose to end his relationship with Simpson in 2009 on the eve of her 29th birthday. Prior to Simpson he also dated Carrie Underwood and actress Sophia Bush.
Simpson’s break up with Romo was fairly acrimonious but she found love again in May this year, in the form of Eric Johnson, a former NFL star who proposed to her on November 11th, 2010.
In what seems like a three way game of “Who can marry first?” Nick Lachey, Simpson’s ex-husband, publicly announced his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo one week before Simpson and Johnson, and a month before Romo and Crawford.
So, does it seem like one-upmanship to you? Or are the engagements purely coincidental? Let us know by leaving a comment.
