Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo and wife Candice Crawford have welcomed a new baby boy to the family, according to the Washington Post.
Romo and his wife announced the arrival through the Cowboys PR department.
Team spokesperson Rich Dalrymple released in a statement: Hawkins Crawford Romo is now a part of the Dallas Cowboys family. He came into this world on 4/0/12 at 5:30pm., 8 lbs. and 8 oz. All is well with his mom.”
No official word from Dad or Mom yet, sources told US Magazine that “everyone couldn’t be happier.”
The Dallas quarterback married Crawford in May of 2011 and announced their plans to start a family in October.
Fellow Cowboy player Dez Bryant tweeted, “Congrats to my boy Tony Romo on his first child.”
A picture of the couple and the new baby has been popular on Twitter, thanks to Deadspin website.
Jokes about Romo’s football career have surfaced. In one Washington Post article, Matt Brooks wrote, “No word yet on whether Romo, whose history of ball security issues, is well-documented, was allowed to hold Hawkins without oversight.”
Troy Aikman, former Cowboys players, said that despite the fact that Romo has only led his team to a playoffs once in the last six season, he still have plenty of talent.
“I know how quarterback are judged but as far as his play-making ability and the things that he is capable of doing, he is far more athletic quarterback, capable of making more plays than I ever was able to,” Aiken said. “He has a good team around him and hopefully, and I believe this will happen, I believe that he will win a Super Bowl before he is done playing.”
