Vin Diesel is a proud dad once again!

The Fast & Furious star announced the arrival of his third child with longtime girlfriend Paloma Jiménez Monday afternoon on Facebook.

"I hear babies crying, I watch them grow," he captioned the first photo of his baby girl while quoting lyrics to Louis Armstrong and Kenny G's popular single. "They'll learn much more, than I'll ever know. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world…" A baby's name has yet to be revealed. 

When news first broke that the couple was expecting, reports surfaced that Diesel backed out of a few promotional stops for Furious 7. In fact, a studio source confirmed to E! News that both the junket and the premiere had been moved from Abu Dhabi to Los Angeles.

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

A studio insider added that Universal Pictures was "happy to premiere the film in L.A., the birthplace of the franchise, where a core fan base exists."

While Diesel maintains a successful film career, the actor also remains focused on being a hands-on father to his three kids.

"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," he shared on Good Morning America when asked about his other child Hania Riley. "You would see it in her spirit."

While Diesel remains private with his family, we're hoping to hear just a few more details about his latest baby girl soon! Congratulations Vin and Paloma!
