Aaron Lohr & Idina Menzel: Relationship
The pair began dating in 2015 and made their relationship debut at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner that year. Afterwards, the couple bought a home together in Encino, Los Angeles, California. The home cost $2.675 million.

In front of family and friends at their home, the couple said “I do.” Idina’s son from her previous marriage, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, now seven years old, walked her down the aisle.
