Vin Diesel has found a name for his daughter: it’s Pauline! The star told fans of ‘TODAY’ that he decided to pay tribute to his late friend, Paul Walker, by naming his daughter after the actor.
“I named her Pauline,” said Vin. He went on to talk about the spirit of Paul, which he believes was present when the little one was born. “He was in the room,” explained Diesel. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there.”
It was just a few days ago that Vin introduced the seventh installment of the FURIOUS franchise at a Los Angeles screening of the film. “I had to introduce the first screening in California, where the franchise started,” shared Vin. He added, “This was a labor love. It was, in some ways, the hardest movie I’ve ever had to do because the relationships that you see in the film are so real.”
Diesel told fans that he lost a friend and brother when Paul passed away in 2013. He also encouraged viewers to spread the news about the film’s release to their family and friends.
Vin Diesel is the proud father of three kids. FURIOUS 7 makes its public debut on April 3, 2015.
