Los Angeles - Vin Diesel is to be a father for the third time.

The 47-year-old actor's wife Paloma Jimenez - with who he already has kids Hania, six, and four-year-old Vincent - is reportedly due to give birth close to the new Furious 7 movie's release date of 3 April and as a result, a planned premiere at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi on 10 March has now been scrapped so the star can be with his family.

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

Instead, the film's premiere will take place in Los Angeles on 1 April.

A source told The Hollywood Reporter: "Universal are happy to premiere the film in LA, birthplace of the franchise, where a core fan base exists."

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.

His most recently public appearance with his wife and kids was when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August 2013.
