She appeared in Maxim in 2005, and she also appeared in a few fashion shows in 2006 and 2007, as well as campaigns for Coca-Cola, Honda Civic, Pantene, and more. She also dabbled in acting, appearing in one episode of Otro Rollo Con: Adal Ramones in 2004, per IMDb.
The couple has three children
Vin and Paloma are parents to three beautiful kids. They welcomed their first daughter Hania Riley Sinclair, 15, in 2008. Paloma gave birth to their son Vincent, 13, in 2010, and they had their second daughter Pauline, 8, in 2015. Pauline was named after Vin’s late Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker.
After Vin and Paloma welcomed Hania, he opened up about how he was adjusting to fatherhood in a 2008 interview with Parade. “When you have a child, it opens up parts of your heart that you never knew existed. And it is so true. It’s like you have a child and you think, ‘Everything that I’ve done up until this point is insignificant in comparison to being a father.’ It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing,” he told the outlet.
What has Vin said about her?
Vin and Paloma usually keep their personal lives to themselves, but Vin did open up about wanting to be a parent after working on the 2005 comedy The Pacifier in the above-mentioned interview with Parade. “I remember while I was doing Pacifier, working with babies on the set for so long, it really started to bring out this desire to have a child. And it took a couple years after that to find the right person and to hopefully be mature enough to be a great father which is really all you want to do,” he said. “It’s amazing how it becomes your primary focus. ‘Am I going to be a good dad?’”
