Vin Diesel is one of the manliest actors alive, but even he couldn’t reveal the name of his baby girl without shedding tear. The Fast & Furious 7 star named his daughter Pauline, in honour of the late Paul Walker.
Vin clearly cared a lot about his co-star actor, who died in a high-speed crash in 2013. The two grew up and became famous in the movie industry together, eventually becoming best friends and ‘brothers.’ He has been keeping Walker’s legacy alive ever since his death.
This is what he told the Today Show:
“I named her Pauline. 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.”
What a gesture of true friendship…
