In flight over Los Angeles, Vin says that he knew his Fast & Furious co-star was beside him and girlfriend, Paloma Jimenez, as the birth of their daughter took place. “While I was in the hospital, the name that I will give you is…I named her…I named her Pauline,” he confesses. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord.” Diesel wanted to keep Walker a part of his family, which is why he made the decision.

“When the tragedy happened, I lost my best friend. I lost my brother.” In 2013, Walker’s life ended during a car crash in southern California. Since then Diesel, Tyrese and Ludacris has opened up about the lose of a great individual.
