Meet Walker Nathaniel Diggs!

09/15/2009 at 06:05 PM ET

Is he a Broadway baby in the making? At only two weeks old, it’s too early to tell, but we’re happy Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel decided to share a photo of their latest co-production!

Son Walker Nathaniel, who arrived on September 2nd, makes his debut in a family portrait released to the Associated Press Tuesday afternoon. Too cute!

What a beautiful baby!! It’s so nice when celebrities share their own photos, it’s much more personal, rather than the paparazzi launching sneak-attacks to catch a glimpse of the newborn. It’s obvious that Idina and Taye adore this little guy, and it’s no wonder, he’s so gorgeous!! Congrats!

CTBmom on

Yes!! I am ridiculously happy that Taye and Idina released a picture of little Walker! He is just as beautiful as I thought he would be! I agree…I love these personal pics over formal ones, but I’m not complaining either way. Anyway, this pic is too, too sweet. I just love this family! =)

Summer on

he’s real cute!

danda_lion on

So sweet!

Karm on

Erika, true pigmentation can take 6 months to a year especially with a child of mixed race. Who knows maybe he will stay lighter or have more of Taye’s colouring later. 🙂

Kat on

this beautiful baby and his elated parents just make my ovaries ache… I’m thrilled for them.

Leto(Gaia's mom) on

He’s a cutie!!! One thing tho black babies and children of color period tend to be born quite fair and darken as they get old. Or the other way around, I was born fairly dark and got to tawny and my daughter looked white(as her dad is white) and she’s now my complexion. Its kind of like how some white children are born with blonde hair and are brunette by age 2.

RIP Michael on

It was well past the time for these two to have a kid! 🙂

He is adorable and is making me want a baby! Loving the three of them in this pic.

Benigna Marko on
