Tony Romo and his wife have welcomed a baby cowboy to their family.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and wife Candice Crawford’s first child, a baby boy named Hawkins Crawford Romo, was born Monday, a Cowboys spokesperson confirmed to People mag.

"Congratulations to Tony Romo, proud papa of Hawkins Crawford Romo, born yesterday at 5:30pm. 8lbs 8oz," the team wrote on its official Twitter page.

Romo, 31, met Crawford, a former Miss Missouri pageant winner, when she was a sports journalist at a local television station. They started dating shortly after Romo split with Jessica Simpson and went on to tie the knot in May 2011.

Crawford’s brother is “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford, who told Us magazine Romo was a “wonderful person.”

“He was born ready to have a family…so it makes perfect sense," Crawford told Us.

Romo announced his wife's pregnancy last October during his speech at Cedar Hill High School in Texas. When a student asked if he had any children Romo revealed that his first was on the way, Yahoo reported at the time.
