'Fast & Furious' star, Vin Diesel has named his new born daughter, Pauline in honor of his co-star and best friend, Paul Walker.

The 47-year-old actor revealed this in a recent interview with NBC's 'Today' on March 23 saying its his own way of making sure that Walker's memory lives on.

"I named her Pauline. There’s no other person that I’m thinking about as I’m cutting this umbilical cord,” Vin told Natalie Morales on NBC’s Today.

“I knew he was there and I felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my memory, a part of my world.” 

On the one year anniversary of Paul's death, Vin took to his Facebook and posted a heartfelt picture of his best friend bonding with his firstborn daughter, Hania Riley.

He wrote: "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. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood… that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life… A year ago today… a year of mourning… and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo…"

The actor has also started his press tour for his new film Furious 7, which is obviously a very difficult time for him, due to the loss of co-star and best friend, Paul.
