Since Paul’s death in 2013, Diesel has made sure to be present in the life of his longtime friend’s only child. In 2019, the “Fast and Furious” star shared a heartfelt message to wish Meadow a happy 21st birthday.
“I could say that I am so proud of the person you are becoming… but the truth is I have always been proud of you,” the actor wrote alongside a photo of Meadow and his own daughter Pauline, whom he named after Paul. “I know it’s your 21st and you wanted to go big in Japan, but the family has a cake waiting for you when you get home, so hurry. Love you kid. Uncle Vin.”
Meadow responded to the post and thanked Diesel for his kind words.
“Thank you so much. I can’t wait to see you soon. And my little angels,” she wrote at the time. “Love you.”

On what would’ve been Paul’s 46th birthday, Diesel shared a lengthy message to Instagram on Sept. 12, 2019, and revealed that Meadow reached out to check on him.
“I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change… from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to… your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day,” Diesel wrote in the caption accompanying a photo of the actor standing next to a photo of Walker. “Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday… it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.”
Paul died in a car crash in November 2013 at the age of 40. At the time, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told the Associated Press that speed was a factor in the crash.
