Taye Diggs and his wife, Idina Menzel, are expecting their first baby later this year.

The couple first met on the original 1996 Broadway production of Rent in NYC and married after seven years of dating in January 2003.

Last January Idina told UsMagazine that once she finished promoting her third solo album she would be ready to start a family.

“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 said. “He’s always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, so he’s very comfortable around children.”

“We just really work hard to try to stay best friends,” Menzel told Us. “I love him so much, and I feel like we both have each other’s backs, and we have a great respect for each other. We’re enjoying each new phase of our lives together.”
