Vin Diesel has two daughters, and woe to anyone who treats them in a less than respectable manner. Earlier this year, he welcomed baby Pauline into the world; she’s named in honor of Paul Walker. And then there’s Hania Riley, who is now 7 years old. Vin is already thinking ahead with Hania and giving her all the tools she’ll need to protect herself… and he’s enlisted his friend and Furious 7 co-star Ronda Rousey to help out. Via Star Pulse:
“First of all, I feel sorry for anyone that has to (date her). I wouldn’t want that on my worst enemy because I’m just that kind of dad.”
“I’ve been thinking about this since the day I cut the umbilical cord and because of that I made a decision early on that I was going to do everything in my power to empower her to handle it herself.”
“Because of her ‘auntie’ Ronda Rousey she is now an orange belt with stripes in Judo. I’m dealing with it early. I’m creating a beast and I want her to be able to say no means no.”
Judo is a great martial art to teach your kid. If they get good enough at it, anyone wearing a shirt is fair game to get tossed face first into the dirt. Forget Kung Fu and Karate and all that McDojo crap. In a scenario against someone who has no judo training, it’s almost comical how easy it is for a competent judo practitioner to throw or trip their opponent.
And who knows, with ‘Auntie Rousey’ and Daddy Diesel helping her along, maybe we’ll end up seeing Hania fighting in the UFC some day. Not that she’ll need the money or anything. By then, Fast & Furious 15 will have come out and the Diesels will be as wealthy as Dubai royalty. Unless Vin blows the family fortune making a bunch of terrible movies based on various Dungeons & Dragons characters he used to play as a teenager. Not that far-fetched of a possibility.
