Vin Diesel has announced the arrival of the newest member of his family.

In a Facebook post on Monday afternoon, the "Fast and Furious" star introduced his third child with longtime girlfriend Paloma Jimenez. Attached in the announcement is a photo of his new bundle of joy, with the caption: "I hear babies crying, I watch them grow. They'll learn much more, Than I'll ever know. And I think to myself, What a wonderful world..."

E! News noted that the caption was from the sweet and classic song of Louis Armstrong and Kenny G titled "What a Wonderful World."

Diesel, whose real name is Mark Sinclair, is already father to daughter Hania Riley, 6, and 4-year-old son Vincent, Fox News Latino reported. Announcement about Jimenez's pregnancy with their third child came in February after the actor rescheduled a few promotional stops for the upcoming release of the installment "Furious 7." Us Weekly noted that the film's March 10 premiere in Abu Dhabi was moved to Los Angeles.

"He wants to be with his family at the birth; it's a beautiful thing," a source told The Hollywood Reporter. "What human being wouldn't?"

According to E! News, the changed schedule plans wasn't a problem with the executives and was "happy to premiere the film in L.A., the birthplace of the franchise, where a core fan base exists."

Diesel rarely talks about his family and tries to keep his personal life private as much as possible. But in an appearance on "Good Morning America," the 47-year-old actor talked fondly about his eldest child Hania Riley.

"Anything that I say could just fall into the proud father category, but if the angel were here right now, I wouldn't have to say a word. You would see it in her spirit," he said, as quoted by E! News.

In November 2014, he paid tribute to his "Fast and Furious" co-star and longtime friend Paul Walker via a Facebook post. The photo, which features the late Walker and Diesel's daughter Hania Riley, bears the sweet caption: "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 [umbilical] cord."

He added, "He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood... that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life..."

"Furious 7" is set to premiere in theaters on April 15, 2015. Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, and Jason Statham also star.
