How did Tony Romo meet his wife Candice?

Tony Romo was dating Jessica Simpsons before he met Candice. Tony met Candice over one summer when she was doing The Blitz . “Tony saw her and I guess casually asked her to a movie/dinner date, where you’re eating at the theater. They did that. She was kind of blown away”, her brother Chace revealed in an interview.

Before the couple started dating, Chace’s parents, being massive Cowboys fans, she didn’t want them in the house. And they said, ‘we’re already here. What do you want us to do?’ And she said, ‘hide. Hide in the back.’ She made my parents hide. She didn’t realize Tony was coming over to pick her up. It caught her off guard, so she pushes my parents back in the back”  Chace fondly remembers the “funny” incident.
