The “Fast & Furious” star Vin Diesel has opened up about missing his kids due to his busy work schedule.

Diesel, who just finished filming and started promoting “The Last Witch Hunter,” said being apart from his kids is the “flip side” of being a star, Entertainment Tonight reported.

"I was thinking about my baby that I'm missing while I'm over here in New York doing press for this great movie, that's the flip side. You know, you travel the world doing press for a movie that you're proud of and you really do miss your angels,” he said.

On Tuesday, the actor posted a photo of himself carrying his 6-month-old daughter, Pauline, on Facebook. His daughter was named after his “Fast & Furious” co-star and close friend late Paul Walker. Back in March, Diesel revealed on “Today” show that Walker’s soul was with him when his daughter Pauline was born.

"There's no other person that I'm thinking about as I'm cutting this umbilical cord. I knew he was there and I felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my memory, a part of my world,” he said. Walker died in a car accident during the production of “Furious 7” in November 2013.

Diesel is father to his three children, Pauline Sinclair, 6-months, Vincent Sinclair, 4 and Hania Riley Sinclair, 7.

What do you think? #LastWitchHunter,” he captioned the first photo.
