Vin Diesel is one proud dad.

With his longtime partner Paloma Jiménez, whom he began dating in 2007, the Fast and Furious star has three kids: daughter Hania, 15, son Vincent, 13, and daughter Pauline, 8.

“My pride in my kids is through the roof,” Diesel told PEOPLE in 2017. “Oh my God, I’m proud of them all the time.”

And the feeling is clearly mutual. Diesel recalled of his kids: “They were watching the [XXX: Return of Xander Cage] trailer. At the end of it, my son goes, ‘That’s going to be a giant hit.’ I stopped in the middle of traffic and had to kiss him on both cheeks. Just to let the universe know I had heard.”

He added, “My kids move me to tears all the time. My daughter Similce said to me a couple of weeks ago, ‘Daddy, I know what song should be at every funeral.’ I said, ‘What is it?’ And she said, ‘See You Again.’ That was not fair.”

Diesel’s children are even starting to follow in his footsteps, and his two oldest have joined the Fast and Furious family. The entire Diesel clan also regularly attends the actor’s movie premieres and supports him on the red carpet for some of his biggest career moments.

Diesel and Jiménez welcomed their first child, a daughter named Hania Riley Sinclair, on April 2, 2008. Hania is also known by the nickname “Similce.” Following her birth, Diesel revealed that his late Fast and Furious co-star and close friend, Paul Walker, played a significant role in his decision to actively participate in the delivery.

Diesel recounted a conversation with Paul where they discussed whether he should be present in the delivery room. Paul’s advice was contrary to what some might suggest, as he told Diesel that being present for the birth of his child would be one of the best experiences of his life. With Paul’s encouragement, Diesel took an active role during the delivery, even cutting the umbilical cord himself. The experience allowed for a profound bond to form between Diesel and his daughter, an experience he considers priceless.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Hania has ventured into the acting world and has also become part of the Fast and Furious franchise. In December 2019, Diesel and Hania attended the red carpet premiere of the Netflix animated series Fast and Furious: Spy Racers, in which she stars. The series centers around Tony Toretto, played by Tyler Posey, who is Dominic Toretto’s cousin in the movies. Hania portrays Sissy, a 13-year-old tech genius. Diesel is involved in the series as an executive producer.

Hania maintains a close connection with the Fast family, particularly through her friendship with Meadow, Paul Walker’s daughter. Over the years, the two have shared several photos together, showcasing their bond. In a May 2021 photo, Meadow referred to Hania and Diesel as “family.”

In October 2021, Diesel revealed that Hania had the honor of being Meadow’s maid of honor at her wedding to Louis Thornton-Allan. Diesel, who walked Meadow down the aisle, shared a heartfelt tribute to Paul on Instagram, accompanied by a photo from the wedding. In his tribute, Diesel acknowledged the significance of Paul’s brotherly advice, which had helped prepare him for the arrival of his daughter, who had now become an angel guiding Meadow as her maid of honor.

Hania’s journey in the acting world, her involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise, and her deep connections with Meadow and Diesel have created a sense of continuity and family within the Fast family, honoring the memory of Paul Walker and strengthening the bonds between those involved in the franchise.

Vincent Sinclair, 13

Vin Diesel and his son Vincent

Vincent Sinclair, Diesel and Jiménez’s only son, was born on Aug. 15, 2010.

Vincent, Diesel’s older son, has also become a part of the Fast & Furious family. In March 2021, it was announced that he would make his film debut in F9, portraying a younger version of his father’s character, Dominic Toretto.

While Diesel is proud to have his son join the franchise, he clarified that the decision to cast Vincent was not his own. During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Diesel credited director Justin Lin for the idea. He explained that because the Fast and Furious movies have been a constant presence in his life, with filming often overlapping with the births of his children, the director and the cast have developed their own relationships with his kids. It was Lin’s suggestion for Vincent to portray young Dom.

In September 2021, Diesel teased the title of the tenth installment of the Fast and Furious series by sharing a picture of the letters “FX” shaved into Vincent’s hair. The first trailer for Fast X was released in February 2023, generating excitement among fans.

Apart from his involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise, Vincent has also taken an interest in one of his father’s passions—Dungeons & Dragons. Diesel, who has been playing the game for over 40 years, revealed that Vincent’s 12th birthday cake was inspired by the fantasy role-playing game. Sharing a photo of the intricately designed cake, which resembled a handbook for the game, Diesel expressed his joy at seeing his son share his enthusiasm for Dungeons & Dragons. He reflected on his own introduction to the game at the age of 12 and found it surreal to witness his son celebrating his birthday with a cake inspired by the same game.

In summary, Vincent’s involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise as a young Dom has brought a sense of pride to Diesel. While he didn’t initiate the casting decision, he recognizes the strong bond between the cast and his children, given the long history of the film series. Additionally, Vincent’s shared interest in Dungeons & Dragons has further strengthened the father-son connection, with Diesel delighting in the fact that his son appreciates and enjoys the same game that has been a significant part of his own life.

Pauline Sinclair, 8

Vin Diesel kids

Diesel and Jiménez welcomed their youngest child, a daughter named Pauline Sinclair, on March 14, 2015. The couple chose to honor the memory of Paul Walker, who tragically passed away in a car accident in 2013, by naming their daughter after him.

During an interview on Today following Pauline’s birth, Diesel shared that he felt Paul’s presence in the room and that cutting the umbilical cord was a way to keep his memory alive within his family. He expressed how important it was for him to have Paul’s spirit be a part of his world.

Pauline has developed a special bond with Meadow, Paul Walker’s daughter, just like her siblings and father. Diesel finds it incredibly heartwarming to witness the connection between the two girls, as it reminds him of the bond that his brother Paul and Meadow must have shared. He feels a deep sense of protectiveness towards Pauline, which extends beyond their involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise.

Despite her young age, Pauline has already shown a keen interest in cars. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2017, Diesel revealed that even at the age of one, Pauline had a favorite car—a ’69 Dodge Daytona. This fascination with cars seems to run in the family, and Diesel believes it’s in their genes. He recounted how Pauline would assertively claim the Dodge Daytona as her favorite car whenever the kids played with toy cars.

In April 2023, Diesel returned to Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his role as the voice of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. During the show, he was joined by Pauline in a segment called “The Guillermo Show.” The father-daughter duo engaged in a series of games, and afterward, Pauline expressed her desire to meet Kimmel. With politeness, she shook the host’s hand and even helped Diesel distribute tickets to the premiere of the movie to the audience members.

Overall, Pauline’s birth and her connection to Paul Walker’s memory hold deep significance for Diesel and his family. Despite her young age, Pauline has already developed a love for cars and has shared precious moments with her siblings and Meadow, bringing joy and a sense of continuity to their lives.
