Baby on the Way for Romo

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo may be used to throwing a football or two with his teammates but now he's got another move he is working on -- new father.

    During an anti-drug rally at Cedar Hill High School on Tuesday, Romo announced he and his wife, Candice, are expecting their first child.

    "I actually have one on the way," said Romo. "My wife is pregnant."

    Seriously, haven't they been married for like a hot minute? Just sayin' -- they didn't waste any time in starting a family (not that there is anything wrong with that).

    Romo was almost coaxed into the announcement by fellow teammate Miles Austin when they were asked if they have children.

    He appeared to be a little embarrassed to be talking about himself. In fact, since dropping former girlfriend and tabloid magnet Jessica Simpson, Romo has manged to keep his private life private and is certainly more comfortable talking about football.

    Tony and Candice were married in a fairytale wedding in May attended by family, friends and members of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Just to prove how low-key the couple are, during their wedding, they served prime rib alongside pizza, and Romo's bachelor party consisted of playing games instead of partying.

    Now what to name the little pending football of joy....
