Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs are the proud new parents of a baby boy, Taye Diggs. The baby was born Wenesday to the happy couple. The two had a few names in mind but didn’t choose until seeing him for the first time. Not a bad idea … let’s just hope they both agreed.
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs met while they were co-stars in the runaway Broadway hit “Rent” in 1996. The couple, who are now 38, were married in 2003 and have both seen great success in their careers. Idina Menzel is best known for originating the role of Elphaba, the wicked witch of the west, in the Broadway production of Wicked. Her signature belted vocals helped Wicked become one of the biggest hits in the history of the big white way. Both stars have went on to star in television and film. That kid might have some serious pipes on him, he’s got a quite the gene pool working for him.
