Universal had planned the film's world premiere for March 10 at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, but sources told The Hollywood Reporter the event was called off due to Jimenez and Diesel's soon-to-arrive bundle of joy. Furious 7, which is likely headed for a huge opening weekend at the box office, opens in theaters on April 3.

The couple also have a six-year-old daughter, Hania, and a four-year-old son, Vincent.
