It would have been such a bummer if Tony had beat you to it especially since he dumped you for his new fiancee, Candice! We bet your totally relieved that you got your ring first!

It’s a good thing that Jessica Simpson‘s new fiance Eric Johnson popped the question when he did, because not only is Jessica’s ex-husband Nick Lachey, 37, engaged to Vanessa Minnillo, 30, but now, another one of Jessica’s exes has gotten down on one knee. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo asked for his girlfriend Candice Crawford‘s hand on Dec. 16 at her birthday party at Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck in Dallas, Tex.

Candice is a 24-year-old pageant queen-turned-sports reporter for KDAF, the CW station in Dallas-Fort Worth, and the younger sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, 25. She has been dating Tony since the summer of 2009.

Congrats to Tony and Candice on their big news and whew to Jessica for getting engaged before this happened (Eric, 31, proposed to Jessica, 30, on Nov. 11)!
