Vin Diesel is expecting his third little guardian of the galaxy: girlfriend Paloma is pregnant again

Vin Diesel reportedly has another little guardian on the way!

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star, who played the heroic sentient tree Groot in the Marvel blockbuster, is expecting his third child with girlfriend Paloma Jimenez, according to People magazine.

A rep for the actor did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The ultra-private "Furious 7" star, 47, and the model already have two children together: daughter Hania Riley, 6, and son Vincent Sinclair, 4.

The child is expected to arrive around the same time "Furious 7" hits theaters on April 3, the Hollywood Reporter said, and Universal reportedly canceled the flick's flashy Abu Dhabi premiere because of the actor-producer's impending daddy duties.

In November, on the first anniversary of his "Fast and Furious" costar Paul Walker's death, the husky-voiced actor took to Facebook to share a photo of the late actor and daughter Hania, explaining how Walker had influenced his own fatherhood.

"He was a part of so much in my life ... long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel ... he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo ... after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilicle cord," he wrote.

"He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood ... that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life ... A year ago today ... a year of mourning ... and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo..."

Diesel, real name Mark Sinclair, isn't completely locked down into daddy duty yet: He was spotted leaving Vanity Fair's Oscar party around 2 a.m. Monday, serenading guests with Billy Joel's "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" on his way to valet parking.
