Here’s Why Vin Diesel’s New Daughter Will Always Carry Paul Walker’s Spirit


Some friendships are meant to last forever. When Vin Diesel lost his dear friend and Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker, he made a point to preserve his legacy as he lives his life. This includes keeping his memory at the core of his family.

On March 16, Vin’s longtime girlfriend Paloma Jimenez gave birth to the pair’s third child, a healthy baby girl named Pauline. He revealed to TODAY that she was, in fact, named as a tribute to Walker.

“He was in the room,” Diesel told TODAY’s Natalie Morales. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there. It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
