Partner: Tony Romo—Quarterback, Dallas Cowboys
Following his highlyr publicized relationship—and split—from former pop star-turned-entrepreneur Jessica Simpson, Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo opted for a stunning southern belle. He started dating Texas native—and former Miss Missouri USA—Candice Crawford during the summer of 2009, and, on December 16, 2010, the KDAF Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas news station where Crawford works announced Romo proposed to her while celebrating her 24th birthday with her family at the restaurant Five Sixty. Interestingly, Crawford's brother is Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford. Perhaps his newfound love will turn Romo's NFL luck around—he was sidelined for most of the 2010 season with a fractured clavicle.
