Vin Diesel and his partner welcome their third child

2015-03-17 13:36

Los Angeles - Vin Diesel has welcomed his third child into the world.

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.

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 10 March, 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 3 April, will still go ahead but will take place in Los Angeles on 1 April.

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.
