Van Diesel obviously is going out on his way to make sure the name of his co actor in the Fast and Furious franchise never fades away.
On Saturday whilst showing support for Paul’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide, the Fast 8 actor signed on to Facebook where he revealed the reason why he had kids in the first place.
Read what he had to say:
“He must’ve been God-sent because he put me on the right path. He set me up,” the 49-year-old Diesel revealed.
And when we did the first Fast & Furious, I was already 30 years old or something, but he was a father. When we were in the cars in between takes, he would tell me, ‘Hey, Vin, it’s not a scary thing to become a father’ [and] give me all the good advice.
Next thing I know, I am a dad … [He] is why I named my daughter Pauline because of the credit that Paul Walker deserves in my personal life.”
Continuing with his revelation, he went further:
“Paul was very instrumental in my segue into fatherhood. He was the one that told me to go to the hospital. He’s the one that told me to cut the umbilical cord. He told me to cut the umbilical cord! [He was] the only person, in California, that knew I was about to have a child.”
Vin Diesel is a proud father of 2 girls and a boy with longtime partner, Paloma Jimenez.
