Time for a little song and dance! Idina Menzel and Aaron Lohr are engaged, a source confirms to Us Weekly. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below!
“As if this week couldn’t get any better I have wonderful news… my man and I are engaged!” Menzel tweeted on Friday, September 23. “We are so happy. It’s a beautiful time.”
Newsies alum Lohr presented the Tony-winning actress and singer with a diamond ring nearly a year and a half after they first went public with their relationship.
Menzel, 45, and Lohr, 40, made their first red carpet debut at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., in April 2015, sparking rumors that the pair were more than friends. (The pair costarred in the 2005 film adaptation of the Broadway hit Rent.)
The musical duo kept their relationship under wraps, but a few months later, in August, it was revealed that they had purchased an Encino house together for $2.675 million.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Mediterranean-style home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms, a covered patio and swimming pool with a spa.
This will be the first marriage for Lohr and the second for Menzel; the Frozen star and ex-husband Taye Diggs (who also starred in the original stage production of Rent) announced their separation after 10 years of marriage in December 2013 and finalized their divorce in January 2015. The exes share son Walker, 7.
“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],’” Diggs, 45, told Redbook magazine that July. “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.”
