There’s a baby on the way later this year for Private Practice‘s Taye Diggs and his wife, Broadway star Idina Menzel! The news comes as no surprise as both Taye and Idina have talked about about their desire to start a family.

The Tony-award winning actress revealed that children were “definitely in the plans” after promotion for her third album was over. “I’ll settle down and start popping out some babies,” she said at the time. She noted that Taye was ready for kids “the day I met him. He’s always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, so he’s very comfortable around children.”

Taye, 38, and Idina, 37, were married January 11, 2003 after having dated for seven years. The pair met after having co-starred in the Broadway production of Rent.
