Vin Diesel Instagrams his first Father's Day

Diesel named his newborn daughter Paulina as an emotional tribute following the passing of close friend and "Fast and Furious" co-star Paul Walker. Paulina and Vin shared a sweet first Father's Day together, with Diesel sharing this snap of the two spending some quality time in the midst of his hectic schedule.

Diesel's career has been on a high as of late, with the 2015 box-office smash "Furious 7" and the announcement of the eighth "Fast and Furious" installment. The anticipated action film "The Last Witch Hunter", also starring Diesel, isn't set to release until October but Diesel has already announced a sequel is in the works. Looks like both career and family life are on the up and up for the beloved action star.
