Romo talks about fatherhood routine and 'getting up a little early' for play time before practice

Tony Romo surprised a Dallas radio station Friday by calling in and wanting to talk football.

He joked that it beat going home and changing diapers.

But he told 1310-AM The Ticket that it’s fun being a father and that he has found a routine with his son, Hawkins, now that football season is underway.

“I actually look forward to waking up a little early and playing with him a little bit when he gets up in the morning and then heading out to practice,” Romo said. “Obviously, coming home, I haven’t seen him in 10 or 12 hours, so you get to spend a couple of hours with him before bed.”

Romo and his wife, Candice Crawford Romo, became parents on April 9, so young Hawkins is now five months old.

“He’s got that age now where he’s playing with stuff,” Romo said. “He’s got the cognitive skills. He’s reaching, he’s touching, he’s getting a lot of emotions, the smiles. There’s a lot of feedback, which makes it pretty enjoyable to play with him. For me, it’s just fun being a dad. And he’s such a good kid. ... It’s been a fun experience. I really enjoy it.”
