With all of his death-defying stunts under his belt, you would think that actor Vin Diesel would be a total pro at parenting.
But, according to the actor, fatherhood has proved to be his greatest stunt ever.
“The craziest stunt I ever did? Fatherhood,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of his new film, “xXx: Return of Xander Cage.”
Diesel has three children with longtime girlfriend, Paloma Jiménez, daughters, Similce, 8½, and Pauline, 22 months and son, Vincent, 6½.
Pauline was named after Diesel’s late friend and colleague, Paul Walker and she is apparently the apple of her father’s eye.
“Do you know my daughter, she’s only 22 months old, has a favorite car already?” he said. “I think it runs in the genes.”
But, it was their mother, Jiménez, who got most of the praise.
“She’s everything,” he said. “She’s the perfect mother. She’s just so wonderful in so many ways.”
He continued, “She’s so stunningly beautiful, but the thing people don’t realize is she’s my rock, so she’s so stunningly beautiful on the inside.”
