Idina Menzel & Taye Diggs: We're Expecting!

Private Practice star Taye Diggs and Tony award-winning actress Idina Menzel are expecting their first baby!

“[I've been ready for kids since] the day I met him,” Idina has told Us Weekly. “He wouldn’t talk about marriage, but he’d talk about me having his children. He’s always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, so he’s very comfortable around children.”

Taye, 38, and Idina, 37, first met on 1996′s original Broadway production of Rent in NYC and married in January 2003.

After 13 years together, congrats to the happy couple!!!

    congrats to Taye Says:

    Can not believe that he is such a **** on that show.. But last week’s
    episode he did the right thing by telling the truth in court..!! Even though
    his ex wife is dating the defendants lawyer.. Who Taye’s character
    crushed his case.. Glad to see that he is having a baby.. and seeing
    his girlfriend. They don’t get to see each other very often so this is
    a great event..!

    I hate interacial couples and she looks old enough to be his mother.. im sure she isnt but she looks a bit old! The baby will probably look better than both of them because it will have good qualities from both. But i hate interracial dating and i know Obama is a product of interacial, so am i and so is 3/4 of the so called African Americans, if you want to see a real full blood African you have to go the the motherland! my hatred is because white folks are racist and talk crap about blacks like you are better (and we know thats a lie) but yet you have been inter-breeding wiht us for ever and a day!

    Janelle Says:

    Whoa… I’m black and I have white ancestry also but I don’t hate interracial couples. People have been racist in the past, but at least most are trying to take a stand against racism. I’ve never minded interracial couples. I think they’re cute. I say congrats to Taye and Idina!

    Here’s hoping for a wonderful pregnancy. I just hope that those in the media will leave it up to the parents to fix an identity. There are fair skinned bi-racials who identify more with the European side. And of course, there are bi-racials who identify more with being African American. And some in between.

    There’s also a religious identity component, so we will need to respect that as well.

    13 years together and NOW they have a baby? I don’t know why women are waiting so late nowadays. I guess they think their babies are invincible when it comes to birth defects. Yeah, older women are at a higher risk for them. But congrats,Taye D.

    ChocoKisses Says:

    I’m not a mother. So I didn’t mean to put down older moms. But why wait and have to get fertility treatments or be at risk of birth defects, when you can have them at your healthiest?
