Vin Diesel is not married and has never been married. While the Fast & Furious star is essentially not married at the moment, he has been in a long-term relationship with Paloma Jimenez, a Mexican model, actress, and entrepreneur, since 2007.
Today we examine all there is to know about the California-born actor’s marital status and his enduring relationship with Paloma Jimenez, a partner with whom he has had 3 children.
Vin Diesel Is Not Married To Paloma Jimenez
In 2006, Vin Diesel characteristically stated that he prefers to keep details of his private life away from the the public and the media. He further intimated that he shares this belief and code of silence with older veteran actors such as Harrison Ford, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, and Robert De Niro, all of whom are loath to put their affairs on public display.
To that end, many of his fans have regularly wondered about his marital status and the nature of his relationship with the Mexican model Paloma Jimenez. The very straightforward answer to those questions and speculations is that Vin Diesel and Paloma are not married.
There are ample reasons why people think the couple is married but the most dominant reason revolves around the fact that Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez have been together for a very long time and have even started a family together. Hence, anyone who believes that the actor is married to the model could be forgiven for that assumption.
Vin Diesel And Paloma Jimenez Have Been Together For Over A Decade
During a 2008 interview with Parade, Vin Diesel admitted that he began to seriously consider starting a family while filming Pacifier, a 2005 film about a Navy SEAL who took on the undercover job of a nanny. He stated that working with children ignited a longing to be a father.
However, he was also quick to admit that he needed the right partner to be able to make things work. Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez officially began dating in 2007 and have been together for over 10 years. At the time their relationship kicked off, Vin Diesel was gradually coming into his own as a Hollywood star with the outset of the Fast & Furious franchise which already had 2 movies out.
Vin Diesel’s Partner, Paloma Jimenez, Is A Model
While Vin Diesel was not yet very popular as an actor at the time he got involved with Paloma Jimenez, she was already a known model. Born Karla Paloma Jimenez Denagustin on August 22, 1983, in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico, the 5 feet 10 inches model spent her early years in Mexico before moving to the United States at some point in her life.
Her career as a model took off in her home country of Mexico where she was a prominent feature of the nation’s fashion industry. She diversified her portfolio to include brand ambassadorship and ad campaigns with brands like Honda, Coca-Cola, Pantene, and several others.
She was featured in the Mexican edition of Maxim Magazine and the now-defunct Max Magazine in 2006. She has been represented by a couple of management agencies, including ID Model Management and Look Models Agency.
Given the fact that both Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez pretty much move in the same circles, it will not be too presumptuous to say that they met for the first time at a celebrity party of some sort. However, given that neither Diesel nor the model has said too much about their relationship, there is no way to confirm the details of their first meeting.
Their relationship has lasted for more than 10 years since commencing in 2007 and Diesel acknowledges the impact Paloma has had on his life, once referring to her as his rock and the best possible mother his children could have asked for.
Vin And Paloma Have 3 Children Together
As we already pointed out, Vin Diesel enjoyed his role as a nanny in 2005’s Pacifier so much because it provided him with a unique perspective of what having children would be like. He liked that perspective and set out to replicate that feeling in real life. It didn’t take long after his relationship with Jimenez began before they started having the kids he longed to have so much.
Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez’s first child and daughter arrived in April 2008. They named her Hania Riley Sinclair. The couple had their only son so far in 2010 and named him Vincent Sinclair, after Vin Diesel’s stepfather, Irving H. Vincent. In 2015, the couple welcomed their third child and second daughter, Pauline Sinclair.
She was named after Vin Diesel’s late Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker who died in a car accident in 2013. The relationship between the two actors blossomed on the set of the Fast & Furious movies and the latter’s demise left a big hole in Vin Diesel’s heart that the birth of his daughter Pauline did so much to fill.
The actor has shown on several occasions that he loves being a father. The way his face lights up when he talks about his children and the way he likes to show them off on social media demonstrate just how close he is to them and how proud he is to be a father. Diesel’s journey into fatherhood has also influenced his decision to take on more child-friendly roles such as his role as the humanoid Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy.
He believes that his kids’ reactions when they see trees and refer to them as the actor’s brothers and sisters bring a feeling of immense satisfaction that justifies his decision to take on the role of the humanoid Groot and other child-friendly roles he has taken on since he started having kids.
The proud father of three has also reveled in the pride of watching his 16-year-old daughter, Hania, follow in his footsteps as an actor after making her debut as a voice actress in the Netflix and Dream Works animated series Fast & Furious: Spy Racers.
The Actor and Model Are Not In A Hurry To Get Married
With the way the actor describes the mother of his children and the length of time they have been together as a couple, one may wonder why they have been hesitant to tie the knot. However, their situation is not a novelle concept, and the couple does not appear to be in a hurry to put the label of marriage on their more than a decade union as a couple.
