Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are officially divorced. The couple announced their separation in December of 2013. The 'Let It Go' singer and The Good Wife actor have both reportedly moved on--professionally and personally.

Diggs and Menzel met when they costarred on Broadway in Rent. They are parents to a five-year-old son named Walker.

Taye Diggs secretly filed for divorce in November. The former couple's became final on December 3rd. He has been dating model Amanza Smith Brown for several months. The two were first spotted in public together at the 2014 BET Awards in L.A. back on June 29th.

"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],'" he said in the July issue of Redbook magazine. "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. It was easy for people to root for us."

Idina Menzel has moved on as well, although her moves involve her career more than her personal life. Incredible success has come her way for her role as Queen Elsa in the animated film Frozen, and the film's trademark hit song 'Let It Go.' In addition she starred in the Broadway production of If/Then.

While it's sad to see any marriage end, both Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel seem to have embraced the positives in their lives and moved on to new endeavors. A source tells MSN that their split is an amicable one, and that they will share the parenting of their son.
