Vin Diesel Named His Newborn Daughter After Paul Walker

Vin Diesel continues to celebrate the life of his late co-star Paul Walker, most recently with an honor that will last a lifetime.

Diesel told Today that he named his newborn girl Pauline as a tribute to his fallen friend. At an advanced Furious 7 screening last week, the actor arrived straight from the hospital to give an emotional speech about Walker. In a new featurette from the film, Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster explain the importance of family in the Fast and Furious franchise.

According to Diesel, Furious 7 is so special because it has "that sense of family that exists in the film actually bleeds off screen." The actor recently posted a picture of himself with his baby girl including the following quote from Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World":

"I hear babies crying,

I watch them grow.

They'll learn much more,

Than I'll ever know.

And I think to myself,

What a wonderful world..."
