There’s rarely a time when Vin Diesel is not in the limelight. But Vin Diesel’s girlfriend is pretty deserving of some attention, too! Meet Paloma Jimenez, the stunning lady who gets the Fast and Furious star all to herself.
Vin Diesel often dominates entertainment news headlines the second he mentions The Fast and the Furious franchise. But we won’t be seeing any Fast and Furious cars until at least next year. He’s currently filming the much-anticipated Bloodshot and reports now say Fast and Furious 9 could be delayed until 2020. But today, we’re going to turn the spotlight on his gorgeous girlfriend, Paloma Jimenez. Many don’t know about the stunner of a woman who gets to call Diesel her man. But worry not; our Paloma Jimenez wiki will catch you up in no time!
Paloma Jimenez and Vin Diesel have been together for almost a decade. Before Jimenez, he reportedly dated his Fast and Furious co-star, Michelle Rodriguez. Dom and Letty fans were certainly disappointed when they broke up! But they moved on when they saw what a hot couple Diesel made with Jimenez.
And today, the two are still going strong despite their 16-year age difference—Jimenez is 34 years old, while Diesel hit the big 5-0 in July 2017. (Can you believe he’s 50?!)
She’s an Accomplished Model
Jimenez put her righteous good looks to use and took the modeling world by storm. Born Karla Paloma Jiménez Denagustin on August 22, 1983, in Acapulco, Mexico, she began modeling in her home country.
She’s fluent in Spanish and has been active both in Mexico and the U.S. She’s represented by ID Model Management in the United States and by Look Models in Mexico. Her modeling resumé boasts some major ad campaigns.
She’s been in print adverts for massive brands like Coca-Cola, Honda, and Pantene, and she’s even graced the cover of the Mexican edition of Maxim.
Thanks to her amazing body of work, Jimenez has a net worth estimated at $5.0 million.
She’s a Mother of Three
Jimenez certainly has it all! The model and her actor beau are gushing parents to their three kids. She gave birth to their first child, Hania Riley, in 2008 when she was 24 years old.
The pair’s second child, a boy they named Vincent Sinclair, was born in 2010.
In 2015, Diesel and Jiminez welcomed their third child, Pauline, who is named in honor of the actor’s late friend and beloved Fast and the Furious co-star, Paul Walker, who tragically passed away in 2013.
Diesel is also godfather to Walker’s daughter, Meadow.
She Was on TV
Jimenez appeared on the long-running popular Mexican variety show, Otro Rollo with: Adal Ramones. The show ran from 1995 until 2007 and featured sketches, live music, interviews, and other forms of entertainment.
Besides Jimenez, other celebrities famous in the U.S. also appeared on the show, including Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, and Sofia Vergara.
Every Step of the Way
In August 2013, Vin Diesel earned himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When he went down to accept the honor, Jimenez was right there by his side, along with their two (at the time) kids, Hania and Vincent. Also present were Diesel’s mother and father, Delora and Irving.
This wasn’t the only time Jimenez was by Diesel’s side in support, though. The Mexican stunner is his red carpet date to all his movie premieres and the two really couldn’t look better together!
