Taye Diggs’ Mom Thought He’d “Marry A White Girl”

“My mother said ‘I told you!’ She always thought—I hate this, but I’m being honest! She said, ‘I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!’ It was a trip because [when Idina] took me home, her dad came out and I was like, ‘Ok, well take off that hood then and let’s see.’ No, I’m just kidding! I said, ‘You tough with the fiery cross in your yard!’ No, I gotta say I was really lucky. I don’t know what they felt on the inside, but I was very fortunate. They’re very loving, accepting. They’re great grandparents. I can’t lie, I had no issues there.”

Taye Diggs jokes on Sway’s radio show about how he and wife Idina Menzel’s families reacted to their interracial relationship. The couple has a 2-year-old son, and Taye has now written a kid’s book called Chocolate Me, which teaches children to deal with racism and taunting from their classmates. [Hello Beautiful]
