Brace yourselves, people—we know this is a lot to handle on a Monday morning. But while visiting the Today show (opens in new tab) earlier today, Vin Diesel revealed that he named his newborn daughter after his former Fast & Furious co-star and "brother" Paul Walker.
"While I was in the hospital, the name that I will give you is... I named her...I named her Pauline," an emotional Diesel, 47, told Natalie Morales. "There's no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord."
Diesel and his girlfriend Paloma Jimenez welcomed their daughter earlier this month. They have two other children: Hania, 6, and Vincent, 4.
"I just thought...I knew he was there and it felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world," Diesel said of his friend, who died in a tragic car accident in November at the age of 40. The latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise—Furious 7—was still being filmed, and Walker's brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish the movie after Walker's death.
"It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real," Diesel recently told audiences at SXSW. "When the tragedy happened, I lost my best friend. I lost my brother."
Ugh, where are the tissues?!
