The Furious 7 star, who is extremely protective of his private life, announced the arrival of his third child (with Paloma Jiménez) last week by posting a photo of the newborn on his Facebook page. But, he didn’t give any scoop on the baby. Not even the newborn’s gender.
But, on Monday, Vin revealed to news anchor Natalie Morales that he welcomed a baby girl and he named her Pauline after Paul Walker.
I’m telling you this because I love you. I know that you are a good soul, and I know that this is in good hands.
But, while I was in the hospital…the name that I will give you is…I named her…I named her… Pauline.
There’s no other person that I’m thinking about as I’m cutting this umbilical cord. I knew he was there and I felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my memory, a part of my world.
Watch Vin’s convo with Natalie below.
What a beautiful way for Vin Diesel to honor his friend.
Furious 7 opens in theaters on April 3.
