The adorable Hollywood couple, who met as members of the original Broadway cast of Rent in 1995, announced they are separating after 11 years of marriage.

"Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time," reps for the actors, both 42, told E! News in a statement. "Their primary focus and concern is for their son [Walker Nathaniel Diggs]. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."
