Idina Menzel has had a huge year with her song "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen becoming a huge hit, her performing in Times Square on New Year's Eve, singing at the 2014 Oscars, and getting nominated for several awards for her part in the Broadway musical "If/Then." Another big change for Menzel this past year, however, was getting divorced from long-time husband Taye Diggs.
Recently, you may have seen Diggs as a guest star on the hit show .
While Menzel isn't reported to be dating anyone of importance, Diggs already has a girlfriend and she's a former pro cheerleader named Amanza Smith Brown.
The two made their red carpet debut at the BET Awards in June 2014.
Diggs has a big Broadway background himself, meeting Menzel on the set of the show "Rent" in the 1990s.
The couple announced their split in December 2013 and finalized the divorce in December 2014.
"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].' Maybe they thought it was cute that we met in "There weren't a lot of couples like us in the theater community—and I know there aren't a lot of performers as talented as she is…and then you have the whole mixed [race] thing" the 43-year-old continued. 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." hunk also shared that the most challenging part of parenthood is being away from his 4-year-old son, Walker, for work "more than a few days.""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."Because of his demanding schedule, the doting father makes sure to always cherish the little things.
You know, she's got two beautiful kids of her own, so it was just a really good friendship and we're taking it from there.
Brown is also the ex-wife of former NFL player Ralph Brown, with whom she has two children.In July 2014, Diggs spoke about his girlfriend to E! Working on doing the show with her with interior design and the kids.
