Jessica Simpson may be keeping mum about what may or may not be impending mommyhood, but her ex, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, is playing it more direct.

During a visit to Cedar Hill High School near Dallas, a student asked if he has any children. "Um, no, I don't have any kids," Romo replied, following up with, "I've actually got one on the way. My wife's pregnant."

As the students clapped, Romo, 31, smiled, raised his fist and said, "It'll be fun."

Romo and his wife, Candice Crawford, 24, were married on May 28.

The Cowboys star dated Simpson from 2007 to 2009 and football fans at times wondered if their relationship had anything to do with the Cowboys' shortcomings.

Guess they'll soon be able to blame their QB's diaper duty and sleepless nights instead.
