The fact that Vin Diesel isn't married often leads people to believe that the Fast & Furious figurehead is single, but the star has actually happily been paired up with Paloma Jiménez for almost a decade.

But, just who is Vin's girlfriend? Below we've rounded up a selection of insane trivia about the Mexican model so you can become more acquainted with the less spotlight-seeking half of this union.

1. What's In A Name?

Just like her partner Vin, Paloma also used a stage name in her career. The model was actually born Karla Paloma Jiménez Denagustin before shortening her name to make it more memorable.

2. A Model Profession

As you may have guessed from her stunning good looks, Paloma works as a model. She has been the face of all manner of products from Pantene to Coca Cola and been represented by two of the biggest agencies in the business.

3. A Beautiful Brood

Paloma is the mother of all three of Vin's beautiful children. She gave birth to their first child, Hania Riley Diesel, back in 2008. Their eldest daughter was followed by brother Vincent Sinclair Diesel (2010) and Pauline who was born in 2015. As any Vin fan will know, the little bundle of joy was named after the late Paul Walker as a mark of respect from the family.

4. Screen Dreams

Although she is not very well known in America, Paloma has a big enough presence in Mexico to be able to play herself on a variety show for laughs. Back in 2014 she appeared on her native country's Otro Rollo Con: Adal Ramones. Who said Vin was the only actor, eh?

5. Age Is Only A Number

Paloma is actually 16 years younger than her long-term partner Vin Diesel and she was just 23 years old when the pair got together.

6. A Private Partnership

If you were wondering why you don't know much about Paloma, it's because she and Vin have decided to keep their relationship as private as possible amidst the dazzling lights of Hollywood. Back in 2006, Diesel explained the situation by saying:

"I'm not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors ... I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence."
