Romo and Crawford announced the birth, which took place on Monday, through the Dallas Cowboys public relations department.

Hawkins Crawford Romo is now a part of the Dallas Cowboys family, said team spokesperson Rich Dalrymple in a statement. He came into this world on 4/9/12 at 5:30 p.m., 8 lbs. and 8 oz. All is well with his mom.

Romo, 31, and Crawford, 25, got married in May 2011 and announced the pregnancy in October.

Romo is a three-time Pro Bowler with a 96.9 career passer rating. However, the much-maligned quarterback has led Dallas to only a single playoff victory in six seasons as a starter.
