Diesel and his girlfriend Paloma Jiminez welcomed Pauline in March, when the actor proudly showed off a photo of his newborn daughter on Facebook, quoting Louis Armstrong: "I hear babies crying, I watch them grow. They'll learn much more, Than I'll ever know. And I think to myself, What a wonderful world..."

Diesel has said in the past that Walker influenced his experience as a father. He wrote on Facebook last November, "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."

In March, Diesel told "Today" that he named his daughter after Walker in order to keep his memory part of his family.

Pauline is Diesel's third child with Jiminez; the couple also have daughter Hania Riley, 7, and Vincent, 5.
