Walker’s smile can light up any room and warm the hearts of many. The little one is certainly spreading happiness and joy to his father, Taye Diggs, who recently told media that Walker’s expression after having a hard day at school is priceless.
“The best is seeing the expression on his face when I pick him up from school,” said Diggs. “The way he says ‘Daddy’ is unrivaled by anything.”
With so much love and affection coming from his little guy, Taye admitted that it’s difficult to leave Walker and go to work. “The toughest… well, lately, it’s leaving for work when I know I have to be away from him for more than a few days. And just the vulnerability,” explained the star. “It’s weird: You can do whatever with your own life, but when it comes to someone else’s, who is your blood, it’s a level of vulnerability that I wasn’t—that I’m still not—prepared for.”
That vulnerability is why he and estranged wife Idina Menzel are trying to work on their relationship. “Right now, we’re still trying to figure out a lot of stuff because we’re on different coasts and our son is getting older,” shared the actor.
Taye and Idina wed in 2003 after meeting one another on the set of Rent. Walker is the couple’s only child.
