Vin Diesel, Paloma Jimenez welcome their third child

Vin Diesel and girlfriend Paloma Jimenez have welcomed a third child, with the actor announcing the baby's arrival via a very cute new-daddy post Monday on Facebook.

The "Fast and Furious" franchise star can be seen leaning down over his newborn, who's being held by an IV'd-up Jimenez -- presumably -- in what appears to be a hospital bed.

By way of detail, the avid crooner included only song lyrics from "What a Wonderful World," leaving birth date, weight, name and gender all up to the imagination of his fans at this point.

Such privacy is nothing new for the actor: It was less than a month ago that the world learned the baby was even on the way -- right around the time the world premiere planned for "Furious 7" in Abu Dhabi was canceled, according to the Hollywood Reporter, because Diesel wanted to stay close to home for the birth.

Diesel, 47, and Jimenez, 31, are already parents to daughter Hania Riley, 6, and son Vincent Sinclair, 4.

"Furious 7" celebrated a landmark Monday as well: It got a sneak screening just after midnight at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
