During her career she could be seen in advertising campaigns for such brands as Honda, Coke and Pantene. However, in 2008 she quit active modelling, as she gave birth to her first child and focused on her family life and the new role of a mom. In 2016 she claimed that she was going to get back into modelling in the way she worked in the industry before having kids, but she still only rarely appears in some printed ads, etc.
Personal life, husband Vin Diesel
Paloma is a long-term partner of Vin Diesel, a popular American actor. They met in 2006, and started living together. They never comment on their private life, so no one actually knows the reason for their skipping the official marriage. However, Paloma has given birth to their three kids: the eldest daughter, Hania Riley, was born in 2008, the middle, son Vincent, in 2010, and their youngest, daughter Pauline in 2015.

Did Vin Diesel cheat on Paloma?
In 2016, some sources close to Vin and Paloma announced that the couple was about to split, as Paloma found out that Vin was cheating on her. According to sources, she was fed up with news about his affairs, and was going to ‘take back control of her life’, reviving her modelling career. However, the rumors were not proven to be true, and the couple still lives together, and no new rumors have popped up since. In 2001 Vin dated his fellow actress Michelle Rodriguez; they still work together, starring in “The Fast and the Furious” films. The fact of their previous relationship also cast a shadow on Vin and Paloma’s life.
Vin Diesel’s short bio and career
Born on 18 July 1967 as Mark Sinclair, Paloma’s partner became famous as Vin Diesel, an American actor, producer and director.
Raised in Alameda County, California, he has never met his biological father, while his mother, Delora Sherleen Sinclair Vincent, worked as an astrologist; she is of German, Scottish and English descent. Vin has a fraternal twin, Paul.
Vin started playing on stage when he was only seven years old, landing his first role in the production of Barbara Garson’s “Dinosaur Door”. An interesting fact was that Vin had no intention of participating in the play; he, his friend and his brother were caught by the director of the Theater for the New City, when the trio tried to break the locks of the theatre space and to vandalize it.
In terms of a deal, the director suggested roles in the play to the guys instead of calling the police. Vin enjoyed playing on stage, and decided to become an actor. He also developed his screenwriting talent, attending Hunter College in New York.
Vin is mostly famous for his appearing in such movies as “XXX”, in which he played the main role of Xander Cage, and the series of movies “The Fast and the Furious”, in which he portrays Dominic Toretto. His role of Richard B. Riddick in “The Chronicles of Riddick” was criticised by the audience and the experts, and the whole series of “Riddick” movies was not as successful as Vin hoped it would be, as he also produced the films.
He was even called “Worst Actor”, winning the Golden Raspberry Award in 2005. However, Vin won the hearts of his fans once again, voicing over Groot in “Guardians of the Galaxy” (2014) – his character appeared in the “Avengers” films, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”.
