Broadway vet finds her voice on 'Glee'

NEW YORK -- "It's a baby zone," Idina Menzel murmurs when you enter her fifth-floor Chelsea apartment.

Indeed, a stroller is parked by the front door. And in the dining area, across from the family-size wood table, her 8-month-old son, Walker, plays on the floor with his nanny, happily chewing on a toy.


The child, the spitting image of dad Taye Diggs but with his mom's almond-shaped orbs, greets entrants with a wide, gummy grin.

"People say he mostly looks like Taye. He has his nose and the shape of my eyes. We think he's one of those blends that ends up being neither of us," Menzel says. "He's just so yummy. My favorite thing is to feed him and rock him and put him down to sleep. My husband and I, we're connected in a totally different way."

On cue, a sleepy Diggs emerges from their bedroom, clad in a baggy sweater, pants and Uggs.

"Hi, how ya doing?" says Diggs, heading over to play with his son.

Menzel and Diggs love their "eclectic, like our style" Manhattan apartment, a former sewing factory that the couple bought seven years ago, even though they just closed on a house in Los Angeles.
