The co-parenting life is working out for Idina Menzel who tells PEOPLE Now that she and ex-husband Taye Diggs exchange their egos for harmony.

“Your child comes first, that’s all,” she explains. “He comes first and you have to get past your own egos and you never talk bad about each other.”


Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel finalized their divorce two years ago. The celebrities announced their separation in 2013. “Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” a representative for the former couple revealed. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

Diggs later opened up about his and Menzel’s marriage dissolution by telling REDBOOK, “I’d be lying if I said there weren’t times when I thought, ‘Oh, man, people are going to trip out [if we split].'” The actor went on to tell media that his and Idina’s fans rooted for them because they were different. ” There weren’t a lot of couples like us in the theater community,” he shared.

Regardless of their struggles as a couple that ultimately led to divorce, Taye and Idina have managed to work together for the sake of their son. Walker celebrated his seventh birthday last month. He is Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel’s only child.
