Vin Diesel’s Younger Woman Steps Out to Support Her Older Man

Sugar Daddy Vin DieselVin Diesel, 45, is pretty adamant about keep­ing his per­sonal life under wraps, includ­ing details about his long-term rela­tion­ship with 27-year-old Mex­i­can model Paloma Jiménez. The celebrity cou­ple has been dat­ing since 2007 and even has two kids together.

Jiménez and their two kids aren’t seen together in pub­lic very often, but the whole fam­ily came out to sup­port Diesel as he accepted his star on the renowned Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame on August 26. The award was pre­sented to him by his Fast & Furi­ous co-star, Michelle Rodriguez— these two were actu­ally rumored to be dat­ing a few years before Diesel met Jiménez.

Although Diesel hardly ever talks about his rela­tion­ship with his younger woman, he did hint in the past that she’s the one he might be will­ing to set­tle down with. When asked in an inter­view about the pos­si­bil­ity of mar­riage, Diesel said, “I am hon­ored that my fans want to be a part of my life. But I’ll let the news out only when Paloma and I decide on tak­ing the next step.” He also referred to her as his “calm­ing influ­ence” and that he’s grate­ful to her for giv­ing him a “beau­ti­ful angelic daugh­ter who makes my heart melt every time I see her.”
