Apryl Jones and Taye Diggs have been going strong for some time now. The reality star and a-list actor first began appearing out and about at the top of this year, much to the shock of fans. Shock gave way to adoration as people have fallen in love with them and their undeniable chemistry and love for one another. They have been moving fast and making it clear that they want to continue to grow and evolve as a couple. Their lastest move? Adding a new addition to their family.
Both Taye Diggs and Apryl Jones are already parents and have storied dating histories in the public. Diggs exploded onto the scene in the ’90s as a broadway star turned big-screen actor. He was married at the time to fellow broadway alum and movie star Idina Menzel. Taye and Idina share one son, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, born in 2009. Success came quickly for both actors, and eventually, the spark fizzled. They divorced in 2013, but Taye has opened up about how they have remained friends and co-parents for their son. “We were friends to start out with,” he recalls making the transition easier, especially for their son.
Diggs went on to date Selling Sunsets’ Amanza Smith shortly afterward. They were together for almost five years. Amanza said that she and Smith got together fairly quickly following his split from Idina, so it put some strain on their union that never quite went away. She called him moving on so fast a “bad idea” and admits she knew it would never work out.
Apryl Jones was introduced to the world as R&B singer Omarion’s lady. Despite seeming very in love early on, it became clear the two were a bit toxic for each other, and things did not end well. Apryl admits that she had no desire to do reality television but joined Love & Hip-Hop to help with Omarion’s storyline. The duo has two kids together, Megaa Omari Grandberry and A’mei Kazuko Grandberry. They have bickered on and off in the media, with Apryl stating that Omarion has repeatedly served her with papers in reference to their custody battle.
Following her split with the “Ice Box” hitmaker, Jones had a very controversial relationship with his B2K groupmate Lil Fizz. The pair dated briefly, resulting in a big falling out between Omarion and Lil Fizz resulting in B2K being removed from a tour they were doing. Jones would eventually be spotted out and about with Dr. Dre around the time of his divorce. Jones and Diggs began making appearances together earlier this year, and it seemed pretty clear they were really feeling each other.
Diggs could not hide his smile, and Jones was also beaming as they got out of a car to attend a party. They have kept fans in the loop of their growing love on social media, often posting silly videos of them at home together. Last month they shared a video of them singing together to show how “in tune” they are. Diggs joked that they finished each other’s sentences and sang the same songs. They jokingly tried to sing along with each other, laughing the whole clip. “So in tune but yet offbeat, love that for you guys😂😂.”
In another video of them on vacation, the silly couple tried to welcome their followers to Bora Bora in a staged clip of Apryl coming out of the water and Taye turning to the camera. Taye kept botching his lines while his lady giggled and declared, “you suck!” With this much love and chemistry, many are wondering if the duo will make things more official with marriage and possibly kids together.
Apryl trolled fans in a clip yesterday on her IG of her “making an announcement” while out at lunch. She said that she felt pressured by her followers, who kept asking her if she was pregnant or expecting. “I didn’t want to have to tell you guys like this. I didn’t want to tell you guys that, yes, I was…” Before she finished her statement, Taye appeared from behind her with a puppy.
“This is Roxy,” the happy couple said. Apryl joked that all the bloat was from her carrying their new “baby.” Congrats to the happy couple.
