The 47-year-old actor says he named his child after his late friend and Fast and the Furious co-star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in November 2013.
“I named her Pauline,” Vin said on The Today Show.
“He was in the room,” he added. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there… It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
