Vin Diesel and Paul Walker starred together in one of the highest grossing movie series of all time, they were best mates, then sadly the world lost Paul Walker in 2013. Vin Diesel has since had a daughter and named her after Paul and he has revealed in a very emotional interview exactly why he did.

Vin and his partner, Paloma Jimenez, welcomed their baby girl Pauline in March this year. The two are already parents to Hania Riley Sinclair, 6, and son Vincent Sinclair, 4.

  • The friendship these two shared was amazing and always brings me to tears. It’s a lovely tribute to his mate.

  • THAT is such an amazing tribute to paul walker. Vin is sure doing an amazing thing by honouring his friend this way. I saw that they used a lot of digital effects to recreate paul’s character in fast and furious and he looks real.

  • My son’s middle name is the same as his grandfather’s. He passed away before meeting my son so it was fitting to honour him in that way.

  • I’m touched to hear the story behind the name of Vin’s daughter.
    We never done it in our family to name our babies after someone else though.

  • In a way each of my daughters are named after someone but no one would know unless I told them.
    For instance my eldest has the feminine version of a name that my grandfather was given by a friend as a nickname but not many people know of his nickname.
    My middle daughter has part of my name as her middle name.
    My youngest has part of my sister inlaws name and its also my great grandmothers name as her middle name.

  • My son’s middle name is that of his Dad’s. Otherwise his first name is all his own.
