Tony Romo, wife expecting a child

Tony Romo’s responsibilities will increase significantly soon. The Cowboys’ franchise quarterback is preparing to become a father.

Romo broke the news while speaking to students Tuesday morning at Cedar Hill High School along with receiver Miles Austin as part of the school’s drug prevention campaign. A student asked the Cowboys stars if they had any children.

“I actually got one on the way,” Romo said with the Fox 4 TV cameras rolling. “My wife’s pregnant.”

Romo, who responded to loud applause from the crowd with a fist pump, married former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford in May.
