Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have welcomed their first baby boy, Idina has announced on her official fan Twitter page.
“Idina & Taye have welcomed baby Walker Nathaniel Diggs into the world, my friends! More details to come. Congratulations!!” read the message, posted early Thursday morning.
Taye and Idina wed in January 2003 after seven years of dating. The Private Practice star, 38, met the Tony award-winning actress, 38, on the original 1996 Broadway production of Rent.
At a Television Critics Association event in June, Taye told Us magazine that he was “asking every parent” for advice.
He also revealed they weren’t choosing a name until after their son’s birth.
“We have a couple [names in mind],” he told Us magazine. “But a friend of ours convinced us to see what he looks like when he comes out.”
Idina had hinted to Us magazine last January that once she finished promoting her third solo album, I Stand, she would consider starting a family with Taye.
“It’s definitely in the plans,” she said. “I’ll settle down and start popping out some babies.”
She said Taye 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 magazine. “He’s always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, so he’s very comfortable around children.”
