Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs Welcome Baby Boy

Idina Menzel Taye Diggs baby

With such a talented gene pool to draw from, we're surprised Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel's baby didn't come out belting "Evita" or the closing number to Oliver.

The two Broadway veterans welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Walker Nathaniel Diggs, on Wednesday.

A rep for Diggs confirmed to Access Hollywood that all was well with the new family—despite the child having a name that will forever be associated with a really bad Chuck Norris television show about a Texan ranger, but we digress. When Dating, How Important Is Someone's Name?

"Mother, father and son are all doing well," the rep said in a statement.

The couple, who are both 38, first met on the set of the original production of the cult-hit musical Rent in 1996. They married in 2003.

Idina is best known for her Tony Award-winning role as Elphaba in 2003's Wicked. Taye Diggs is currently starring in ABC's Private Practice, in which Idina occasionally guest stars in.
