Taye Diggs stopped by Sway's morning show to promote his new children's book Chocolate Me, about a young boy who feels "different" because he is black.
During the wide-ranging interview, Taye talked about growing up in a white-neighborhood and marrying fellow actress Idina Menzel, who is Jewish.
He candidly joked about meeting Idina's father, saying he got to know him once he took the hood off! Then he revealed that when his mom met Idina, Mama Digga told Taye, "I always knew you would marry a white woman!"
He went on to explain that love has no color and he and his family (they have a 2 year old son named Walker) are happy.
