Vin Diesel Says Paul Walker Inspired Him to Have Children

Vin Diesel is remembering his late friend Paul Walker.

The 49-year-old Furious 7 star attended a Reach Out Worldwide charity event with Paul‘s father, Paul Walker III, and his brother Cody on Saturday (September 17) where he opened up about how Paul inspired him to have children.

Paul was very instrumental in my segue into fatherhood,” Vin said. “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 continued, “He must’ve been God-sent because he put me on the right path. He set me up. 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.”
