For more than two decades, Vin Diesel has been at the heart of one of the most popular franchises in the history of American art – Fast and Furious. Thanks to the franchise, the actor has gone from being a relatively unknown actor to an international star with a massive fanbase. However, beyond his life as Dominic Toretto, not many people know details about his personal life. As a result, Vin Diesel has been the subject of curious questions, like if he’s gay and who his kids are.

The award-winning actor has managed to keep his life away from the spotlight he is so often in, contributing to the mystery surrounding his sexuality and other aspects of his personal life. We have, however, been able to piece every droplet of personal information about the action star since he began his journey in Hollywood and you can read all about it below.

What We Know About Vin Diesel’s Sexuality

Vin Diesel’s lack of presence in gossip websites and magazines has fed a theory that the Fast and Furious action superstar is a gay man. The fact that the California-born actor has one of Hollywood’s most distinctive voice and look, an attractive feature to both men and women, has not helped to quench the theory.

However, the theory is wrong. While we admit that sexuality is fluid, current evidence tells us that Vin Diesel is not a gay man. The Bloodshot actor is a straight man who has dated women since he became a notable actor. The closest the actor has been being a member of the LGBTQ community is dating his Fast and Furious costar and bisexual actress, Michelle Rodriguez.

Examining Vin Diesel’s Longterm Relationship with Paloma Jimenez

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor may have managed to keep his personal life out of the spotlight because he has been off the market for a very long time. Vin Diesel has been in a relationship and built a family with the Mexican model, Paloma Jimenez, since 2007, and they have both remained a couple to date.

Despite having a 16-year age difference, the couple has remained together for more than a decade – one of the oldest couples in Hollywood, a place renowned for short-lived relationships. Sadly, because of the actor’s tight-lipped nature, we do not know how this long-lasting love came to be.

Who is Paloma Jimenez?

The partner of the action star might not be as popular as her beau, but she has a considerable presence in Hollywood and show business beyond being the eye candy on her partner’s shoulder. Paloma Jimenez is a native of Guerrero, Mexico, born on the 22nd of August 1983. She is a fashion model, and she began her career in her native Mexico.

Since she began her career, Paloma has modeled for various brands, including Coca Cola, Honda, and Pantene. Her modeling career has seen her appear across various forms of media, from print to television. Aside from being a model, she has also dipped her toes in acting and appeared in a couple of televised programs.

Her most notable appearance was in a Mexican comedy and variety show, Otra Rollo: Adalramones. The show ran from 1995 to 2007, and as a part of the show, she featured in sketches and interviews.

As Vin Diesel’s partner, she has been spotted alongside him at various events, including film premieres, award shows, and charity events. The model is fluent in Spanish and English and is represented by ID Model Management in the United States.

How Many Kids Does The Fast And Furious Star Have?

Vin Diesel is father to three beautiful children – Hania, Vincent, and Pauline. All three children were born to him by Paloma. The first, Hania Riley, was born in April 2008; his only son, Vincent Sinclair was born two years later in 2015 while his last daughter, Pauline, was born in March 2015.

His second child, Vincent Sinclair, was named after his mother, while last son, Pauline, was named after his late close friend and Fast and Furious costar, Paul Walker.

A Look At Who His Family Members Are

One other aspect of Vin Diesel’s personal life that rarely gets any coverage is his extended family. He is the son of an astrologer named Delora Sherleen Vincent. Other than the fact his last name is Sinclair, the identity of Vin Diesel’s biological father remains unknown. And according to Vin himself, he has never met him. The actor was raised by his stepfather, Irving H. Vincent, an acting instructor, and theater manager.

As for his mother, nothing is known about her professional life, but she has been an influential and supportive presence in Vin’s career since he made his acting debut at the age of seven.

Vin Diesel’s Reclusive Twin Brother And His Relationship With Paul Walker

Another little-known detail about Vin Diesel’s personal life is the fact he is a twin. The actor has two siblings, Paul, who is his twin, and Tim, a supposed older sibling. Very little is known about either of his siblings, both of whom have followed in their famous brother’s footsteps and kept away their personal lives away from the spotlight.

We do know that Paul Vincent had a brief career working behind the scenes in Hollywood. He collaborated with his brother in the production of a couple of films. He was part of the sound department of the short film, Multi-Facial, and one of the Fast and Furious films.

Although Paul Walker is not biologically related to Diesel, both actors grew close as members of the Fast and Furious franchises and developed a familial relationship that went from screen to real life. Since Paul Walker passed away, Vin Diesel has remained a close friend of the Walker family and he is the godfather to his daughter, Meadow Rain Walker.
