It looks like Jessica Simpson’s ex beat her to the delivery room, after all!

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, 31, and Candice Crawford, 25, welcomed son Hawkins Crawford Romo on April 9, according to People. Tony and Jessica Simpson ended their two-year relationship back in 2009, but Jessica is now pregnant and engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson. Everyone was guessing who would give birth first — Jessica or Candice — and it looks like Candice won!

The baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 8 oz., and was born at 5:30 p.m.

The couple married in May 2011 and announced the pregnancy in October.

“Hawkins Crawford Romo is now a part of the Dallas Cowboys family,” Cowboys spokesperson Rich Dalrymple said in a statement.

The new edition’s uncle, Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, tells People he plans to be “the best uncle.”

Congratulations to the proud parents!
