There's a new player on Tony Romo's home team.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and wife Candice Crawford welcomed a son yesterday, their first child together.

And, not only is Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford an uncle now, we have a new cutie-pie name to fawn over! What did they call their baby boy?

"Congratulations to Tony Romo, proud papa of Hawkins Crawford Romo, born yesterday at 5:30pm. 8 lbs 8 oz," read a post to the Cowboys' Twitter page. He measured 19 3/4 inches long, per ESPN.

The team site reports that mother and son are doing well. And dad, who wears the team's No. 9 jersey and became a father on April 9, is probably feeling pretty good, too.

"He's over-the-moon excited about it," Chace Crawford told Us Weekly regarding his brother-in-law just a few weeks ago. "He's just such a wonderful person...He was born ready to have a family, you know what I mean? So it makes perfect sense."

Romo and Crawford tied the knot last May and revealed they were expecting in October—just days before Crawford's ex Jessica Simpson confirmed the worst-kept pregnancy secret in Hollywood at the time.

So...any day now, Jess. Any day now.
