Tony Romo’s baby boy has arrived! Forget a race to the altar, this quarterback has not only beat ex Jessica Simpson down the aisle, but scored the first point in the parenthood arena. Not to fear, she’s still got a leg up on another couple!
Announcing Tony Romo’s baby news, the Dallas Cowboys’ official Twitter page shared Tuesday, “Congratulations to Tony Romo, proud papa of Hawkins Crawford Romo, born yesterday at 5:30pm. 8 lbs 8 oz.”
Conversely, Jessica Simpson has yet to speak publicly about the arrival of Tony Romo’s baby. The singer, who dated the quarterback from 2007-2009, is currently expecting a child with fiancé Eric Johnson.
Not only did Tony Romo’s baby boy make his arrival into the world before Jessica Simpson’s bundle of joy, but the 31-year-old and Candice Crawford beat his ex to the altar! The pair wed on May 28, 2011, while Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson have opted to wait until after their child’s arrival to go forward with a wedding.
Jessica Simpson may be getting trounced in the major milestone department by Tony Romo, but she’s fairing slightly better when pitted against ex-husband Nick Lachey, also currently expecting his first child! Though he and Vanessa Lachey (formerly Minnillo) exchanged vows in the summer of 2011, their baby isn’t expected to arrive until after Simpson’s.
