Candice Crawford Romano considers herself one of the weird kids who always knew what she wanted to be when they grew up. She met her future husband, quarterback Tony Romo, as an intern at the Dallas Cowboys.

Tony Romo followed his wife, Candice Crawford Romano, into sports broadcasting upon retiring from football. The couple shares a love for sports and plays golf together. They are raising their three boys in Dallas, Texas.

The film "Miss Congeniality," starring Sandra Bullock, inspired her to enter her first beauty pageant. She was crowned Miss Dallas Teen USA 2004 and made it to the Miss USA competition in college.

Love Story With Tony Romo

Tony dated high-profile singers Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood, who his future brother-in-law Chance coincidently also dated. The Dallas Cowboys Quarterback and Candice met during her summer stint at the Cowboys and had a single date.

Candice told her "Inside the Huddle" co-host, Tiffany Clutts, that the couple had a second chance at a "first date" two years later when she moved back to Dallas and the QB was more mature. He popped the question with an 8-carat yellow diamond ring at a family celebration of her 24th birthday.

Approximately 600 of their closest friends, family, colleagues, and team owners witnessed the couple's union on May 28, 2011, at Arlington Hall. The bride and groom wore white and danced the night away to a playlist curated by Tony.

The Business of Motherhood

The journalist has three children with the former Dallas Cowboys QB; Hawkins Crawford Romo, born in 2012; Rivers Crawford Romo in 2014; and Jones McCoy Romo in 2017. The couple shared their parenting views with "The Dallas Morning News." Tony on their unique boys:

"The one thing that having children has taught me is that you can really have the exact same environment, and they can be two very different kids. And it's great though. I think they're both just… they love different things… they have different personalities."

The couple enjoys spending time with their children. Rivers showed an aptitude for sports "from the womb," according to his mom, who calls him a miniature Tony. Hawkins is a puzzle and Lego enthusiast.

Candice reconnected with her school golf buddy Hollie Siglin over their sons' shared due dates. They created an essential oil company, Hawk + Sloan, named after their kids, that boldy aims to "conquer parenthood… one spray at a time."
