The TV station reports that the 30-year-old player proposed to Crawford, a former Miss Missouri and the younger sister of Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, while the couple were celebrating her 24th birthday Thursday at Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, a swanky restaurant atop Dallas Reunion Tower.

A wedding date has not been announced.

Romo has not played since breaking his collarbone on Oct. 25. He previously dated singer Jessica Simpson.

On the TV station's website, Crawford says she has a passion for sports, loves to run, play basketball, cook and go to Cowboys games. Channel 33's website also got a first look at the ring.
