Such a beautiful tribute!
Vin Diesel recently announced the birth of his third child with girlfriend Paloma Jimenez — but we were completely clueless on the little one’s name… until now.
On Monday, the actor revealed on NBC‘s Today that his newborn daughter would be named Pauline in honor of the late Paul Walker.
Diesel and Walker were co-stars in the Fast & Furious movies and had remained close friends up until Walker’s death on November 30, 2013.
Vin had this to say about naming his daughter after Walker:
“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.”
The 47-year-old actor and his girlfriend of seven years are also the proud parents of daughter Hania Riley Sinclair, 6, and son Vincent Sinclair, 4.
It’s clear that Diesel and Walker had a very close friendship, and now the actor’s memory will forever live on in Diesel’s life.
Walker’s final film, Furious 7, opens in theaters on April 3.
