One of Hollywood’s most macho leading men showed his softer side earlier today when he shared a touching announcement for the birth of his newborn child on Facebook that included a photo and the following lyrics from Louis Armstrong’s song “What a Wonderful World”:
I hear babies crying,
I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more,
Than I’ll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world…
The proud pop was none other than Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel, who just welcomed his third child with Mexican model Paloma Jimenez. Vin, who usually likes to keep his personal life just that, has yet to share a name or sex of the baby.
The little bundle of joy will join older siblings Hania Riley (born 2008) and Vincent Sinclair (born 2010).
Congratulations Vin and Paloma! In honor of the birth, here is the great Satchmo singing the full song “What a Wonderful World”:
