Vin Diesel is now a proud father of three. The Fast & Furious star has welcomed his third child with girlfriend Paloma Jimenez, and proudly announced their newborn's arrival on his Facebook page on Monday.

The 47-year-old star shared a sweet photo that shows him leaning in next to the tiny newborn, who is wrapped up and lying by her mummy's side in a hospital bed. Vin captioned the picture with lyrics from Louis Armstrong's famous track What A Wonderful World, writing, "I hear babies crying, I watch them grow, They'll learn much more, Than I'll ever know, And I think to myself, What a wonderful world."

Vin and 31-year-old model Paloma are also parents to son Vincent Sinclair, four, and six-year-old daughter Hania Riley.

The couple, who prefer to keep their family out of the spotlight, are yet to reveal the name or sex of their new arrival. News that they were expecting their third child was only revealed in February.

Vin might prefer not to talk about his children, but is known to be a real family man. He briefly opened up about being a dad while remembering his late friend and Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker on the one year anniversary of his death.

"He was a part of so much in my life… long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel… he took a certain pride in being Uncle Pablo," Vin wrote on his Facebook page.

"After all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day (Hania) was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilical cord. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood."

Vin and Paul will be seen on screen together for the last time in Furious 7 – due for release in April – alongside stars including Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham and Ludacris.
