Vin Diesel is a worldwide favorite actor best known for his awesome role in Fast & Furious. He is also a talented producer and screenwriter. However, Diesel admits being a good father for his adorable kids is his main lifetime achievement.

Tragic loss

Recently, Vin Diesel shared a post on Instagram to pay tribute to his late godfather. The actor was very close with his relative and said it was a tragic loss for the entire family. Diesel came to New York to spend the last days with his relative.

In his emotional post, Vin Diesel says how grateful he is for all things his late relative did for him and all the important lessons he’s learned.

I wouldn’t be who I am today without you. Rest In Peace.


Vin Diesel talks about parenting

The actor confessed he’s never considered himself a family-oriented person until he became a father for the first time. Now, Vin has three wonderful kids. In fact, the happy father says he appreciates his good friend and Fast & Furious co-star, Paul Walker, for being a perfect example to follow.

The late star, Paul Walker, became a father a bit earlier than Diesel. In his turn, Vin is a godfather of Walker’s daughter.

Vin Diesel named his third child Pauline in honor of his good friend, Paul Walker. The actor said it was some kind of intuition that made him pick up this name.

When I was in the delivery room, I said that I felt like Paul was there. I named my daughter Pauline.


We condole to Vin Diesel for the loss of his godfather and hope his wonderful family will help the actor pass through this hard period in his life.
