Candice Crawford received a very special gift from Tony Romo for her 24th birthday this year: a ring and a marriage proposal.
Crawford, pageant queen and KDAF-TV anchor, was celebrating the milestone with Romo, 30, and her family at Five Sixty restaurant in Dallas on Thursday when he popped the question, reports the Dallas Morning News.
Local station KDAF-TV’s Web site has a photo of the ring.
“Tony is great – still a friend of mine,” she said. “I still look at his cute butt in the outfit – uniform.”
