Vin Diesel Names Newborn Daughter Pauline After Paul Walker (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, Diesel and girlfriend Paloma Jimenez welcomed their third child earlier this month. The baby girl joins 4-year-old son Vincent and 6-year-old daughter Hania. But while Diesel previously shared a precious photo of his little one, he remained mum on the child’s name. Until now.
“I named her Pauline,” Diesel told Natalie Morales. “There’s no other person I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I knew he was there, and it felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
Walker, of course, tragically died in a fatal car crash in 2013 during a hiatus from filming Furious 7. No one in the cast took the news harder than Diesel, who long considered Walker his brother. Last week, at an advance screening of the movie, which was completed with the help of Walker’s real brothers stepping into his role, Diesel became emotional when talking about Walker’s legacy. “I lost my best friend. I lost my brother,” he told the crowd.
“Please from my heart, know that we made this movie from our hearts,” Diesel went on. “And know that this is our gift to you and more importantly, it’s for my brother there.” Now the star is paying tribute to Walker not just through the film, which opens on April 3, but through his own flesh and blood.
