Tony Romo says his marriage to Candice Crawford has strengthened ever since she gave birth to Hawkins last month.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback tells People, “If it’s possible to bring you and your wife closer together, something like this really does. It strengthens your family values and your family and the love you have, which is already really strong. It’s been a great blessing from God to put us in this situation. We feel very honored.”
Being away from his newborn son is “definitely hard” and he’s grateful Candice is supportive.
If you get a great wife who understands the demands of someone in athletics, I think that’s important. I was lucky enough to find someone like that. She’s a great mom and a great wife. It’s been fun just hanging out with her and my son. It’s been exciting.”
He also shared what Hawkins has already accomplished
He said, “You want to see everything. At 3 weeks old, we were having him lay down, and we put him on the floor. And all of a sudden he just rolled himself right over. That was pretty neat to see.”
