Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel expecting first baby


Private Practice star Taye Diggs and Tony award-winning actress Idina Menzel are expecting their first child, said a publicist for the couple.

Idina and Taye, who co-starred in the stage and film versions of the musical Rent, have been together for 13 years. They married in 2003.

“[I’ve been ready for kids since] the day I met him,” the 37-year-old actress 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.”

Idina won a Tony Award for her turn in the 2003 Broadway production of the musical Wicked.
