He captioned a photo of the three of them: “MD made some nice music. and embellished the post with heart and music emojis.
The Emmy-winning actor who rose to fame playing rival choir leader on the musical comedy series Glee first announced Mia’s pregnancy back in October, when he joked that the “ultimate spring collaboration” was just around the corner. He wrote, “We have been making music for many years.… But this time we did BEAT. The ultimate joint release of Spring 2022!” While pregnant, Darren, who currently stars on Broadway alongside Laurence Fishburne and Sam Rockwell in the classic play American Buffalo, joked that the newcomer would be “Broadway’s baby.”
He told ETOnline: “I’m running out of words to say how excited I am. It’s like how the words ended on the Scrabble board. There will be several nights of premieres! very grateful for giving life to many things, including this play. The circumstances around her are very accidental, and the poetry of this does not escape me. I am very glad that I bring life to the world, given the circumstances.
