The Fast and Furious franchise actor and his wife are reportedly due to give birth close to the new ‘Furious 7’ movie’s release date of April 3 and as a result, a planned premiere at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi on March 10 has now been scrapped so the star can be with his family.
A source said: “He wants to be with his family at the birth; it’s a beautiful thing. What human being wouldn’t?”
Instead, the film’s premiere will take place in Los Angeles on April 1.
A source told The Hollywood Reporter: “[Universal are] happy to premiere the film in L.A., birthplace of the franchise, where a core fan base exists.”
The fiercely-private actor is known for keeping his family out of the spotlight and didn’t make any announcement about the births of his older children.
His most recently public appearance with his wife and kids was when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August 2013.
