Vin Diesel took to Instagram over the weekend to share a tribute to his late friend and costar Paul Walker.
Vin Diesel’s Paul Walker Picture
Diesel posted a picture of himself holding up his daughter Pauline – named in honor of Walker – on Instagram, while at the beach. A black and white image of Walker appears in the corner of the picture above them and looking down upon them with a smile. Diesel captioned the picture, “Always…”
A few weeks ago, Diesel had shared a throwback picture with Walker with a story from the set of Fast & Furious 8, where Walker’s absence was duly noted. “Many of the crew members who have worked on several of the past Fast films are here again to help us make something special,” he wrote. “One of them at the end of the week came up to me and said wow what we are capturing on film is excellent… And then looked at me and said Paul would be proud.”
Diesel also shared a montage with the late actor.
Diesel and his longtime girlfriend Paloma Jimenez welcomed Pauline – their third child together – in March 2015.
A few months prior to her birth, marking the year that had passed since Walker‘s death, Diesel revealed the influence he had on him as a father. “He was a part of so much in my life… long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel… he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo… after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilical cord,” Diesel wrote, referring to his firstborn Hania. “He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood… that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life…”
