Menzel talked about conceiving another baby through IVF with her now husband, Aaron Lohr, whom she wed in 2017. Menzel and her former-husband Taye Diggs together share their 13-year-old son Walker. The singer and actress were still determining if she wanted to pursue second-time marriage and motherhood. 

In the Podcast, she mentioned she had an incredible bonding with her son, who then asked for a sibling. Possessing maternal love, they tried to have the next baby, but it was too late for her. Doctors clinical talks got her annoyed, but she was still clinging to the hope that a fewer percentage of women got pregnant being older.
