Chace Crawford: I’m Going to Be the Best Uncle

With sister Candice expecting a baby boy with husband Tony Romo come April, Chace Crawford says he can’t wait to tackle his new role.

“I’m over the moon!” the Gossip Girl star, 26, tells PEOPLE Tuesday at a photo exhibit by Mick Rock at W New York Downtown.

“I’m going to be the best kind of uncle — the kind that gets to take him to baseball games and feed him cotton candy.”

And although he’s setting himself up to be the cool uncle, Crawford admits certain things will be off limits.

“When he has to get changed, I’ll take him to Candice. And then I’ll be back when it’s time for video games and spoiling him,” he jokes.

“Tony and I are very close. He’s the best of the best,” Crawford says of his brother-in-law, a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys whom his sister, 24, wed in May.

Will the actor be settling down like Candice? “I’m not in a relationship right now. I like to hang out. I like to go on dates,” he explains.

So does that mean he’s single? “I’m not saying one way or the other!”

How sweet! I remember that feeling when my step brother had his first kid. I was in college and I to tried to be the best Aunt to my niece. I was just like him except I did diapers. Years later, we are still very close and I love seeing her with my kids. Such an awesome relationship.

When did it get announced that Tony and Candice are having a boy?

He can take the little out & teach him how to smoke dope like he was doing here in Dallas!

A few weeks ago Troy Aikman interviewed Tony Romo for NFL on FOX, and Tony told him they were having a boy. Also mentioned they havent picked a name yet, but that Candice is into the longer names.

Someone always has to make an ignorant comment on a nice article.

He used to be so much cuter.

passing thru- Thanks. I wonder why PEOPLE didn’t post that interview? All I can think of is that it was mostly about football so there really wasn’t much for them to report.

Anyway, as I was re-reading this article and got to the part about Candice being due in April, it occured to me that Jessica Simpson seems to be due around the time (she hasn’t said what month she’s due, but she HAS said that she’s have a spring baby, and just recently said she just felt the baby move for the first time. That definietly seems to suggest that she’s due somewhere around April or May!). Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Jessica’s baby and Tony’s baby ended up being born within days of each other?!

Didn’t he and Tony Romo both date Carrie Underwood? AWKWARD!

@ Texas girl – Maybe he will but most likely he won’t. I suppose you don’t like any celebrities out there if you judge so harshly. Most of them have tried at least alcohol and dope once or twice in their lives.

@texasgirl is most likely mad because she hit on him and he took a pass.

Just happened to run into him this weekend at a restaurant in Dallas with Tony and the rest of their fam – he was super sweet!

Our Chace Crawford is very handsome and sooooooo sweeeeeeeeeeeet. I always want to caress and kiss him very lovingly and very tenderly, especially his totally sweet tummy and his very delicious breasts.

Chace, I love you very much. And I wish you nothing but the best.
