Taye Diggs brings the nickname cuteness, baby
Time for some afternoon cuteness, courtesy of People.
Taye Diggs' son with Broadway actress-wife Idina Menzel is named Walker Nathaniel Diggs. But in real life? Dad told Ellen DeGeneres last week that their 6-month-old usually goes by the more exciting aliases Skywalker, Walkman, Walk-a-doo, Walkathon, Little Papa -- and Swirl.
Swirl? Sure, there's the newbie hairstyle but also, the "Private Practice" actor says, it's “because he’s chocolate and vanilla swirl."
Sweet.I know you all have nicknames for your kids or pets or -- well, let's stick with kids and pets. My dog Lucky thinks his name is Warthog, Stinkpants, Little Man or Coyote Bait. And, hey, Walk-a-doo, be jealous that Stinkpants isn't in bed before "American Idol" comes on, like your dad says you are!
Don't be shy -- share your embarrassing reality with all of us in the comments below. Hey, it beats working.
