Tony Romo and His Better Halves

Tony Romo is one of the most polarizing athletes of all time. He's put up record-breaking numbers since taking over as the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys midway through the 2006 NFL season, but has only recorded one playoff win during that time. However, he's definitely racked up the attention of the paparazzi while being connected to four public figures, three of which are nationally known and two of which are global superstars. And with Romo's confirmed dating history since 2007, it's obvious that he has a type.

Romo has officially been paired with Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson and Candice Crawford (now his wife, Candice Romo). All three of these ladies are absolutely gorgeous blonde bombshells with incredible figures. Needless to say, it pays to be the quarterback of the most popular American sports team in the world.

Of course, Romo was also rumored to be dating Sophia Bush for a while, although neither he nor she ever confirmed those reports, but more on that later. Please enjoy this gallery of Romo and his better halves through the years with a surprise at the end that changes the equation, if you will.

Less than a month later, Romo paired with singer/actress/model Jessica Simpson and that's when his career began to go South. Simpson was blamed for Romo's poor play and the two eventually split up almost two years later, much to the delight of Cowboys fans everywhere.

Hawkins is a regular at Cowboys training camp now and from the looks of it, Romo has finally settled down…at least when it comes to his love life.
