As the world waits for Jessica Simpson to address those pesky pregnancy rumors, the singer's ex-boyfriend Tony Romo has some baby news of his own to reveal: he's expecting his first child with wife Candice Crawford!

"I actually have one on the way," the NFL star said during an anti-drug rally at Cedar Hill High School on Tuesday, according to NBC. "My wife is pregnant."

Romo, 31, began dating Chace Crawford's 24-year-old sister in the summer of 2009, shortly after his breakup with Simpson, 30. Engaged since December 2010, the pair said "I Do" the following May before a crowd of 600 guests in Dallas, Texas.

Romo's previous loves include Carrie Underwood and Sophia Bush. Crawford, who was named Miss Missouri USA in 2008, attended the University of Missouri. She now co-hosts The RC Project with Roni Proter, a Dallas news show forecasting fashion trends.
