Vin Diesel gives his 20-month-old daughter a lift as he makes this way through security at the Los Angeles International Airport with his girlfriend, model Paloma Jimenez, on Friday.

Earlier this year, Vin, 42, explained how important it was for him to be in the delivery room with Paloma.

“[I] did everything but literally pull her out. I cut the umbilical cord. I was more present than I could ever have dreamed of, but the bonding that that allowed for with my daughter is priceless.”

I completely forgot he was a daddy.

Finally see her, she’s such a cutie! I can imagine Vin to be a big softie and i bet she already has him wrapped around her little finger.

Erica on

This is the first picture I have ever seen of her. She is a gorgeous little girl. Would hate to the boy that has to meet her dad in a few years. Yikes.

Liliana on

She’s absolutely adorable! I love those curls.

tigerjen on

Seeing this makes me love Vin even more! She is just too cute!
ps: I was thinking her name was pronounced HAN-EYE-UH. No?

Mandy on

I wonder if she got the curly hair from her daddy…the world may never know. :)

Very cute picture, glad to see the family out and about.

Alice on

Haha Mandy, I didn’t think of that!

Very cute picture, glad to see the family out and about.

- Vin had curly hair when he was young an a baby so that is probably where she got the curly hair from unless her mom has curly hair but straightens it. ;)

Allegra on

What a cutie! She is just so beautiful :)
She reminds me of Nahla Aubry and there’s also something about her that reminds me of Lola Sheen. I don’t know what.

Sarah M. on

tigerjen – That’s how I was thinking it’s pronounced, also. I prefer that one to the others, too.

That is one cute kid! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of her either. Love Vin, too!

Jen on

I imagine how beautiful that moment of delivery must have been for both parents. I had a c-section and, though the result – a healthy daughter – is the most important thing, I still struggle with feelings of loss over not having the amazing and powerful moments of getting to push her out. Birth stories like these make me emotional. Glad they had such a great experience.

Beautiful baby girl.

Allegra on

As far as I know, Hania is pronounced HARN-ee-ya, but said more quickly and flowing.

Allegra on

What a gorgeous little girlie! I can just imagine Vin spoiling Hania like a princess. She’s so beautiful. She reminds me a lot of Shiloh, just with darker curly hair and olive skin. Gorgeous :)

Chris on

She’s so cute. She has her mommy’s mouth!

Bea on

Wow what a cutie!! Watch out Nahla, I think u’ve got some stiff competition here

Bancie1031 on

:D YAY :D!!!! :D WE FINALLY GET TO MEET HANIA :D!!!!!!! :D OK sorry I was a little excited when I saw this to say the least! Vin looks so happy and he has a beautiful family!
Hania (however it’s pronounced) is absolutely gorgeous! I agree that she probably has Vin wrapped around her little finger. I honestly hope now that we’ve finally seen her that we’ll get to see more of her, though I’m not holding my breath considering how private Vin is about his private life.

trish on

I think it’s so weird this website doesn’t have his facts correct. her name is Cimilce. It’s on his facebook and he said it in an interview on t with I think jay leno……..So no hania!!!!!

The girl is adorable by the way!!!

Hea on

He seems like an amazing father and that girl is just too cute for words.

Shannon on

#11 Erica-LOl! Those poor boys!!

She is an absolute doll, and how much hotter is Vin when he’s holding his precious daughter?

Monica on

It’s pronounced Han-ya but Trish is correct! Her name is Cimilce. She is looking so much more like Vin when he was a baby. He had curly hair like that.

Olivia on

((hugs)) Jen, I have those feelings too about my own c-section. Hopefully, we will both have the opportunity to push our next babes out.

Beautiful girl. So, how is Cimilce pronounced?

mp on

I just love seeing little girls sitting securely in their dad’s arms.

D on

Jen and Oliva, I felt the same way about my first c-section and was so lucky to have a sucessful vbac with my second. I was so happy to finally get to experience the other way of giving birth, it was amazing. I hope you both get a chance too.

Olivia on

Thanks, D!

tigerjen on

Watched him on Leno and he says his daughters name. It is Cimilce!
Pronounced SIM-MILL-CHAY
I think he said she was named after a Tibetan princess.

Where did CBB get Hania from????

Sarah M. on

Where can the interview be found? I’ve been looking on you tube, but can’t find any of his interviews with Leno. Just curious. :)

Sarah M. on

I found the link for those of you who want to watch the video with Jay Leno. Hope it helps some of you. :) http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=74186214788&comments

Alex on

Cute baby.

Bancie1031 on

Sarah M – Thanks for the link …. loved the video and how Jay put Vin on the spot like that LOL ….. though he never did answer whether or not they’re going to get married ….. but he did say that he’s definitely going to have a couple of more kids! It was sooo cute the way Vin was acting …… :D

Jen on

Congratulations on your vbac, D and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you, Olivia. We can do it! Thanks for the nice words.

Bancie1031 on

trish – can u post a link to his facebook where it mentions her name I can’t find it (just curious to see it ….. seen the video so I know that ur right about her name) please.

Sarah M. on

Bancie1031 (#37) – No problem. It was a cute video!

Sarah M. on

Bancie1031 (#39) – I couldn’t fine the link on facebook either. I tried for a bit, also. (I’m just curious, also.) :)

win on

VIN. Is half black so surely his daughter got the curly hair from her dads side.
