Vin Diesel Girlfriend and Dating History

By on Sep 30, 2014

Vin Diesel, the tour-de-force actor of the multibillion-dollar “Fast & Furious” franchise, has two adorable children and a gorgeous model girlfriend, but we wouldn’t expect anything less from one of America’s best action heroes. Born Mark Sinclair Vincent in 1967, he changed his name to Vin Diesel when he started working as a bouncer in New York City.

One of Vin’s first groundbreaking roles came in 1998, when Steven Spielberg cast him in “Saving Private Ryan.” Vin’s early dating history from his first years as a star is shrouded in mystery, but it must have been fun to be a bouncer in New York City and a newly-minted Hollywood actor in the late 90s.

After starring in the first “Fast & Furious” film in 2001, the first well-known Vin Diesel girlfriend was Michelle Rodriguez, who played his love interest in the film. Michelle’s career was also launched by the “Fast & Furious” franchise. Although Michelle and Vin would only date for a short time, they would become lifelong friends.

Michelle even made a speech when Vin received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the summer of 2013, and Vin’s entire family was at the event. From all accounts, the pair has remained close throughout the years. The two have continued their association as on-screen boyfriend/girlfriend in the most recent “Fast & Furious” movies.

Around 2006, Vin Diesel’s intense secrecy about his private life led to the rumor-mill working overtime, but Vin refused to divulge any information about the women he was dating for several years. He managed to keep all of his relationships entirely out of the spotlight. He even once told a newspaper that he practiced a “code of silence” regarding his personal life and that he wasn’t going to end up on a magazine cover with his girlfriend anytime soon.

It’s pretty common for Hollywood movie stars to find themselves married to or dating models, and Vin Diesel is definitely no exception. He’s been dating amazingly gorgeous Paloma Jimenez since 2007. She’s a Mexican model and is also the mother of their two genetically blessed children: Hania and Vincent.

Although Vin and Paloma have children together and have been a couple for several years, stories of a Vin Diesel wife have been only rumors. However, the pair is clearly desperately in love, as is evidenced by a viral video released around Valentine’s Day 2013 when Vin serenaded Paloma with a song by Rihanna.
