Candice Crawford and Tony Romo are engaged, upping the excitement in the ‘How Many Jessica Simpson Exes Can Get Engaged This Year’ sweepstakes.

TV news host Crawford, 24, said yes to the 30-year-old Cowboys quarterback’s proposal on Thursday in Dallas, where she was celebrating her birthday with family, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The future Mrs. Romo is sister to ‘Gossip Girl’ star Chace Crawford and a former Miss Missouri.

Romo and Simpson broke up in July 2009. The singer’s ex-husband, Nick Lachey, announced his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo on Nov. 4. Simpson, 31, got engaged a week later to former NFL player Eric Johnson.

So is John Mayer even dating anyone? You know, other than Giada De Laurentiis and Taylor Swift? If not, can we hire someone as a pinch-fiancée, just for the it-happens-in-threes fun of it? There’s still time, John!
