Tony Romo end-runs ex Jessica Simpson for official pregnancy news

Jessica Simpson’s ex beau Tony Romo announced his own baby news ahead of the “official” announcement from his visibly pregnant former flame.

Simpson’s former pastor father reportedly was shopping a deal for the bragging rights announcing his daughter’s illegitimate pregnancy, but the cat is well out of the bag as Simpson has been snapped very heavy with child, ending all the rumors.

Now Tony Romo and wife Candice Crawford have announced their pregnancy.

“I actually have one on the way,” the NFL star said during an anti-drug rally at Cedar Hill High School on Tuesday, according to NBC. “My wife is pregnant.”

Romo took up with Chace Crawford’s 24-year-old sister in the summer of 2009, right after he broke off with Simpson, 30. They wed in Dallas, May 2011.

Crawford co-hosts The RC Project with Roni Proter, a Dallas news show forecasting fashion trends.
