Paloma Jiménez is most widely known as Vin Diesel’s wife, but she wasn’t always the housewife people now see her as.
Vin Diesel is well-known for playing street racer Dominic Torreto in the Fast Furious series. It was the action star’s big break that turned him into one of the highest-paid actors of all time. But little is known about The Chronicles of Riddick star’s private life. There are only a few posts featuring his kids on his social media accounts, and just a couple of pictures with his wife in them.

It is not even confirmed whether the Diesel is actually married to Paloma Jiménez. Over the years, Vin Diesel has succeeded in keeping his private life a mystery to fans. But just like his character Dominic Torreto, the actor is dedicated to his family, both as a father and partner. But who exactly is Paloma Jiménez? And why exactly haven’t Vin and Paloma ever gotten married?
Updated on April 20, 2023: Vin Diesel’s relationship status causes many fans to speculate: has the actor ever been married? Does he have an ex-wife? The actor always has been, and continues to be, elusive regarding details of his personal life. His social media accounts are majorly dedicated to photos involving projects he has worked on, rather than updates about himself or his family.
It is known, however, that Diesel is still in a relationship with Paloma Jiménez. This year will mark 16 years of the two being together, which is quite a milestone in Hollywood. Despite her lack of presence on his social media feed, Paloma is always proudly standing by her man during red carpet premieres, showing her support.
Who Is Vin Diesel’s Wife?
Paloma Jiménez is most likely known for being Vin Diesel’s wife, but she was not always the housewife people now see her as. Jiménez was born and raised in Acapulco, Mexico. She immigrated to the U.S. to pursue modeling, but the 5’10” beauty had already made a name for herself in Mexico before her big move.
She was already featured in magazines and ads for huge brands like Coca-Cola, Pantene, and Honda. She also forayed into acting, making an appearance in an episode of a Mexican comedy show called Otro Rollo con: Adal Ramones.
Jiménez was signed by Two Management in Los Angeles in the early 2000s. She walked multiple runway shows around that time. It might have been in one of those events that she caught the eye of her now partner, Vin Diesel. But the model was reportedly focused on her career at that time, and it was quite a challenge for the actor to get her attention.
How Vin Diesel And Paloma Jiménez Met And Are They Actually Married?
Even the details of how the two met are unknown to the public. However, some public details about the actor’s life could be used to trace the timeline of his early relationship with the Mexican model. In 2001, Vin Diesel was linked to Fast Furious co-star Michelle Rodriguez. But nobody knows how long they dated, or if they actually dated in the first place.
