What are people saying about the news?

On Twitter, quite a few comments have been making the rounds, getting retweeted:

@ PeytonsHead says “I hear Tony Romo is engaged to be married. I guess that’s one way to get a ring.”

@TweetEverstrong writes:  “So…Tony Romo may have finally won the big one. He’ll probably blow it before the big day as usual.

@davedbenefield writes: “OMG Tony Romo is marrying a blonde. Quick stop the presses and a beauty queen NO WAY. This is so surprising.”

Crawford is a former beauty queen, having won the Miss Missouri USA crown in 2008. Crawford competed that same year in the Miss USA pageant. She is the sister of ‘Gossip Girl’ star Chase Crawford.

Romo was previously linked to singer Carrie Underwood as well as Jessica Simpson for two years. Simpson famously told PEOPLE that Romo broke up with her on July 9, 2009, the night before her 29th birthday.
