Vin Diesel and his partner, Paloma Jimenez welcomed their third child a few days ago. Until now the sex of the baby was also not revealed. Vin only shared a cute selfie with the little bundle of joy at the hospital to announce the arrival of a new member. The actor quoted Louis Armstrong's hit classic, "What A Wonderful World" to caption the pic.
Now, the Furious 7 star shared the sweet details of his newborn child with TODAY. Vin revealed that he and Paloma are blessed with a daughter.
Guess what the couple named the little princess? Vin has always shown his love for his late friend and co-star, Paul Walker. To pay a tribute to the late Fast and Furious star, Vin named his daughter, Pauline.

"I named her Pauline," he revealed to Natalie Morales. "I'm telling you this because I love you," Diesel said before sharing the news. "I know that you are a good soul, and I know that this is in good hands."
"He was in the [labor] room," Diesel recalled. "There's no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just ... knew he was there."
And Diesel decided that Pauline's name would be a way to make sure Walker would always be there.
"It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world," he explained.
A day before, Vin was at an L.A. screening of "Furious 7" when he talked about his "best friend" and "brother". He said that when Walker died in a car crash in 2013, "I lost my best friend. I lost my brother."
