He’s here! Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs welcomed a son, Walker Diggs, on Wednesday, September 2nd, the couple’s reps confirm to PEOPLE. The baby’s middle name is reportedly Nathaniel.
“Mother, father and son are all doing well,” the reps said in a statement.
The Broadway belters announced the pregnancy in March, later sharing that the baby was a boy due September 6th. Although they had a few names in mind, Taye said they were waiting to make a final decision.
“We have a couple [names] in the running,” the Private Practice star explained. “But part of us wants to see what he hits us with when we see him. We’ll see what he looks like.”
Walker is the first child for the couple, who are both 38 and met on the 1996 Broadway production of Rent. They wed in January 2003.
