One of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors is back on the dating scene!

Taye Diggs, who is currently starring in All American on The CW, talked with Black Hollywood Live’s Inside The Black Actor’s Studio and shared dating has been a give and take with his 9-year-old son, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Idina Menzel.

“A few months ago it was like, he [his son] just came straight out and said I don’t want you to have a girlfriend right now, and I was like, ‘I get it. I feel you,'” shared Diggs, “but I just, you know, I just planted a seed a couple of weeks ago cause he saw me, um, I’m sending a video to this young lady.”

Diggs’ son catching him started a new conversation.

“He asked me who, you know, who it was and I real, I wasn’t thinking, I real quick tried to hide it and I was like, don’t, don’t hide it, and I showed it to him and said it was a friend,” said Diggs.

Diggs was married to Menzel from 2003 until 2011, with their son being born in 2009.

We’re not sure who Diggs dating would be for, Diggs or his son, who is getting to the age to hear all about it in the tabloids.

“It’s not easy,” admitted Diggs. “Nobody teaches you this stuff. You know, it’s uh, it’s hit or miss.”

No matter what happens in the future, Diggs is making sure that his son is totally involved in the process of finding Miss Right.

“I said, I promise you from here on out, anything that happens, I’m gonna run it by you just so you’re in the know, uh, and he appreciated that,” said Diggs.

All American returns for its second season on The CW October 7th.
