There is only one time that I am not happy to have seven kids, and that is when I let one of them down.

Thomas "Tom" Diaz is the father of the Diaz children and the husband of Suzy Diaz in Stuck in the Middle. He is portrayed by Joe Nieves.


Father of the Diaz kids. He's a very loving, caring, but can be childish and inept when it comes to taking care of his kid. However, he'll still protect his family no matter what. He does not approve of Rachel's boyfriend Cuff, as he is overprotective of her around him. Tom is the "cool" parent who doesn't always enforce the rules. He is also easier for the kids to manipulate compared to Suzy.
