Jessica Simpson's Ex, Tony Romo, Beats Her To The Pregnancy Punch

Baby on the way!

Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  At least a little.

While Jessica Simpson reportedly courts media outlets for the highest bidder to confirm her not-so secret pregnancy, her ex-boyfriend who dumped her announces he’s expecting his first child with his wife.

As Fox News reports, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback, Tony Romo, announced today that his wife, former Miss Missouri, Candice Crawford is pregnant.

Romo made the announcement while at Cedar Hill High School in Cedar Hill, Texas, to address students as part of the school’s Red Ribbon drug prevention campaign.

When a teen asked Romo if he had any children, the quarterback replied, “I got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant.”

Romo began dating Crawford shortly after breaking things off with Simpson.  The couple were married in Dallas this May.

As an aside, if you could score half a million bucks by confirming your pregnancy would you? But that’s not even the question, really, is it? Because folks like you and I could absolutely use that money, but does Jessica Simpson really need the cash? Hardly. Why not just be chill about it and announce it on her super popular Twitter page? Or why “announce” it at all? This whole “sell my baby’s photo” or “sell the confirmation of my pregnancy” thing makes me want to toss my lunch.

What’re your thoughts?
