Who is Candice Crawford?

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.

Crawford hasn't updated her Twitter page since mid-November.

No word yet on Jessica Simpson's reaction. We'll keep a close eye on her Twitter feed, too. We should add that Simpson herself became engaged to boyfriend Eric Johnson in November. And, coincidentally, Simpson ex-husband Nick Lachey is also headed for matrimony: earlier in November, he and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo announced their own engagement.

After the jump, Candice in action as a sports reporter...

Hold on a minute, you mean Romo's not marrying Candis Cayne?

He is TOTALLY trying to steal Jessica's thunder too! First, Nick does the "pre-emptive" thunder-stealing by announcing his engagement FIRST. Then, Prince William tries to steal her remaining betrothal thunder by getting engaged to Kate Middleton (only since Jessica was taken)and now even Tony can't let her keep even a little shard of remaining pre-marital thunder. Life is so hard for poor Jessica...

I predict another Break-up Tuesday in about a year.

I'm embarrassed I even remember this, but I think it's a little scummy Romo ditched Jessica the day before her birthday and proposed to the next girl on hers.

I see the Lachey/Minnillo marriage lasting the longest, since they'll probably both drop off the radar before too long. The Romo/Crawford marriage probably has a fair chance, since you don't hear of many football marriages breaking up. Simpson/Johnson... well, I kind of doubt it will even happen.
