Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez who already have two kids; Hania and Vincent named the third child Paulina after his co-star in The Fast and The Furious series of action films, Paul Walker.
Vin Diesel revealed the name in an interview on NBC‘s Today Show in the United States, stating that he felt the presence of his late friend Paul Walker in the delivery suite earlier this month.
I named her Pauline. There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting the umbilical cord. I knew he was there. It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.
Paul William Walker died in an auto crash on December 2013. His body was cremated and the ashes were buried during a non-denominational ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills.
The final film in the franchise to feature Paul Walker, Furious 7 was recently premiered at the South by South West festival. Congratulations to Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez.
