Probably most of us remember when we heard that Paul Walker passed away in a car accident. It was an emotional time for the people who knew him and that emotion rippled out to the wider world.
His death was also extremely hard on his co-worker and friend Vin Diesel. He always said that Paul was like a brother to him and he always had his back, so this is why he wanted to do something extra special and to keep his memory close.
He named his daughter after Paul because of the advice he gave him when he heard that Vin was expecting his first child.
“I can remember just like yesterday he said to me, ” A lot of tough guys will tell you to wait in the hallway, don’t go in the delivery room. [Paul said] but Vin, go into that delivery room, be present and cut that umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life,” Vin Disel said.
He continued: “As I’m cutting the umbilical cord, I’m thinking to myself it’s all because Paul Walker told me to go into the delivery room and so once it came time to sign the name, I started writing “Paul” and just added I-N-E.”
Vin recently got himself a back tattoo that has meaning connected to Walker. The wings with his eyes in the center are so identical to Paul’s, leaving many to believe that it was to honor him.
But unfortunately, the tattoo is not permanent as it was only make up for his character in an upcoming movie. But anyways, it is an extremely nice gesture to honor him.
