Vin Diesel welcomes third child

Vin Diesel and his partner Paloma Jimenez have welcomed their third child into the world and shared an adorable snap on Facebook of the little one.


The 47-year-old actor took to his Facebook account on Monday to announce his partner Paloma Jimenez, with whom he already has Hania, six, and four-year-old son Vincent, has given birth.

Alongside a photograph of himself, Paloma and the little bundle of joy at the hospital, the 'Fast and Furious' star quoted Louis Armstrong's hit classic, 'What A Wonderful World.'

He wrote: "I hear babies crying, I watch them grow. They'll learn much more, Than I'll ever know. And I think to myself, What a wonderful world..."

It is not yet known what sex the baby is, when it was born or whether the little one has been given a name yet.

News that the star was expecting another child with his long-term love broke when the premiere of the 'Furious 7' at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, which was scheduled for March 10, was scrapped because Paloma's due date was so close.

A source said at the time: "He wants to be with his family at the birth; it's a beautiful thing. What human being wouldn't?"

The premiere for the film, which will be released on April 3, will still go ahead but will take place in Los Angeles on April 1.

The fiercely-private actor is known for keeping his family out of the spotlight and didn't make any announcement about the births of his older children.
