Taye Diggs & Idina Menzel are expecting their first child

Taye Diggs is going to be a daddy. Taye and wife Idina Menzel are expecting their first child together. The couple confirmed to US Magazine that the baby is due later this year.

Taye and Idina have been together forever. They met in 1996, dated for years and years and then finally married in 2003. They always seem crazy in love, and there’s never been a whiff of scandal about either of them, as far as I’ve seen. While Taye built a career in film and television, Idina built herself a brilliant, Tony-award winning career on Broadway. US has more:

After 13 years together, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are expecting their first baby, their rep exclusively confirms to Usmagazine.com. The baby is due later this year.

The Private Practice star, 38, and the Tony award-winning actress, 37, first met on the original 1996 Broadway production of Rent in NYC. After seven years of dating, they got married in January 2003.

Menzel hinted to Us last January that once she finished promoting her third solo album, I Stand, she would consider starting a family with Diggs.

“It’s definitely in the plans,” she told Us. “I’ll settle down and start popping out some babies.” She said Diggs has been ready for kids since “the day I met him.”

“He wouldn’t talk about marriage, but he’d talk about me having his children,” she told Us. “He’s always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, so he’s very comfortable around children.”

How do they keep their marriage together?

“We just really work hard to try to stay best friends,” Menzel told Us. “I love him so much, and I feel like we both have each other’s backs, and we have a great respect for each other. We’re enjoying each new phase of our lives together.”

God, what a sweet couple. Now I’m going to have fantasies about Taye Diggs telling me he wants me to have his babies. Sigh.

That baby is going to be gorgeous too. Idina’s lovely and Taye is gorgeous… how could the baby not be a heartbreaker? Congratulations to the happy couple!

    Seeing all these moms having babies well into their late 30s and early 40s with no complications is encouraging….

    That kid’s either going to have the most phenomenal voice in history…or it’ll screech like a drunken parrot.

    Either way, I’m thrilled for the two of them. I’ve been looking forward to this day almost as much as they have! LOL!
