Stunning, gorgeous, and with an interesting relationship status, Paloma Jiménez has continued to inspire amazement and stir unusual interest from the public. Jiménez rose to fame from modeling to acting, but her relationship with Vin Diesel adds even more spice to the flavor of wide curiosity surrounding her life. Read on to find all you need to know about Paloma Jiménez.
Who is Paloma Jiménez?
Paloma Jiménez is a Mexican model, actress, and brand ambassador. Born and bred in Mexico, she started modeling in her fatherland, and later, the United States. Her acting career began with telenovelas, but she would later appear in a Mexican variety show, Otro Rollo featuring various entertainment forms such as live music, interviews, and sketches. Jiménez appeared on the show from 1995 to 2007.
With a beautiful face that grabs attention, Jiménez had her face appear on the cover of the Spanish edition of Maxim magazine in 2005. As a brand ambassador, she has appeared in ads for mega brands like Coca Cola, Honda, and Pantene – a haircare brand.
Paloma Jiménez was born in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico on August 22, 1983. Her ethnic identity is Latina, and her original name is Karla Paloma Jiménez Denagustin. She speaks Spanish and English fluently, and she is a Roman Catholic by religion. With a height of 5ft 8 inches, the dark-brown-eyed Jiménez stands tall with long legs that bring out the glamour in the stunning model.
Relationship with Vin Diesel
The relationship between Paloma Jiménez and American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter Vin Diesel dates back to 2007. In spite of being younger by a whopping 16 years, Jiménez has, since 2007, been the girlfriend of Vin Diesel of the Fast and Furious franchise. The love birds, have had three children together but are yet to make it down the aisle.
Jiménez and Diesel had their first child, a girl, on April 2, 2008, when Paloma was just 24. They named that first daughter Hania Riley. In 2010, they had a second child – a son whom they named Vincent Sinclair, while on March 16, 2015, the couple had another daughter, Pauline, named after Diesel’s late colleague, Paul Walker.
Paloma Jiménez and Vin Diesel have always tried to keep their private life away from the prying eyes of the media. Diesel is said to have maintained the kind of silence Harrison Ford and Al Pacino are known for, concerning their families.
In spite of her somewhat strange relationship with Vin Diesel, Jiménez has always been supportive of his endeavors. She regularly accompanies him to events and walks the red carpet with him. On August 26, 2013, the day Diesel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Jiménez accompanied him, lending the needed emotional support. But that’s not all; she has always appeared with him at various premieres and several other public events.
Meanwhile, the relationship between Jiménez and Diesel, like most celebrities’, has not gone without the usual public scrutiny and odd speculation. The couple was in 2016 rumored to be heading for separation, with Paloma allegedly contemplating a return to her well-cherished career in modeling. But then, against the strange expectation from an anxious public who seem to prefer sad news to good news, the rumor was put to rest when Diesel described it as false. Since then, the couple has remained together.
Her Net Worth
The gorgeous model, Paloma Jiménez is worth an estimated $5 million in net worth. She made her earnings through modeling and entertainment. Her net worth is further said to have been elevated by Vin’s net worth of $160 million.
Paloma Jiménez’s modeling career has brought her into affiliations with top modeling agencies including Two Management, ID Model Management, and Looks Model. While ID Management represents her in the United States, Looks Model is her representative in Mexico.
Among the various known details about the life, career, and relationship status of Paloma Jiménez, one thing stands out further about her: she doesn’t seem to have a social media account. The only accounts associated with her are said to be fan accounts. And this is rather strange considering her popularity and rise to limelight through acting and modeling. Perhaps, this is equally why not much is publicly known about her personal life and family background.
