Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel revealed today that he and his model girlfriend, Paloma Jiménez named their third child, welcomed earlier this month, after the late Paul Walker.
“I named her Pauline
,” the actor shared during a TODAY
show appearance Monday. “It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
Diesel went on to state that he felt Walker was in the delivery room.
“He was in the room [when she was born]. There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there,” Diesel said. “It felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
