Vin Diesel isn't worried about daughters

Vin Diesel is teaching his children to "handle their own."

The 'Furious 7' star, who has Hania, six, Vincent, four, and newborn baby Pauline, with girlfriend Paloma Jiminez, says he isn't worried about his daughters dating in the future because they are already taking martial arts classes.

Asked what he will say to their future boyfriends, the 47-year-old star told E! News: "Oh I won't have to say anything. My six-year-old daughter is an orange belt in Judo and Jiu Jitsu already so my philosophy is you teach them to handle their own."

Vin loves being a father but admits he isn't getting much sleep at the moment because he is on "diaper time" with Pauline.

The actor named the tot after his late co-star and friend Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in November 2013, because he credits the deceased star, who left behind daughter Meadow Rain, 16, for showing him how to be a good father.

He said: "When I was in the delivery room, I said that I felt like Paul was there. He was in the room. There's no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory as a part of my family and a part of my world.

"He went into fatherhood a lot earlier than I did. He took on that role of kind of being the guide into fatherhood for me. It's kind of beautiful."
