‘Paul Walker is Responsible for My Kids;’ Vin Diesel Reveals
No doubt, Paul Walker’s influence on Vin Diesel spans beyond the Fast and Furious franchise as the Chronicles of Riddick actor has confessed his late co-star is responsible for his three children.
Taking time out during the Paul Walker ROWW charity event on Saturday, the father of three revealed to fans through a new Facebook Live video, that Walker was the inspiration behind his sojourn into fatherhood.
“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.”
Before commencing shooting of the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, Diesel once again paid tribute to his dear friend, in this report.
Vin Diesel is a proud father of 2 girls and a boy with longtime partner, Paloma Jimenez and his kids can thank their father’s best bud for their earthly existence.
Despite a bit of tension between on set while shooting with the “chickens–t” and “candy ass” rant by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reportedly directed at Vin Diesel, we can’t wait to see the action flick come April 2017.
