Girlfriend Paloma Jimenez is pregnant with Vin Diesel’s 3rd child
Vin’s mother has English, German and Scottish ancestry, while Vin’s biological father’s identity and background are not publicly known. Vin has described himself as “definitely a person of color”, and has stated that he is also of part Italian ancestry, as well as “a lot of stuff”. He was raised by his Caucasian mother and African-American stepfather.
I am truly multi-racial. I never knew my biological father. I’ve always had less information than I would have liked to have had. All I know from my mother is that I have connections to many different cultures.
[on Multi-Facial (1995)] That film is my tribute to my background. The man who raised me is black. Culturally, he made me who I am. He was a theatre director, so he also guided me artistically.
[on Multi-Facial (1995)] I guess I’ve always looked past the exterior and the ambiguity that my existence represents. When I was in my mother’s stomach, it was still illegal in parts of America for people of color and white people to procreate. Everyone had known me just as a bouncer in New York because I wasn’t able to get any work. There was something too ambiguous about the way I look that would prevent me from ever getting a star.
