Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Pays Touching Tribute to Dad on His 49th Birthday | “My Best Friend and Twin Soul”

She shared a childhood picture with Walker and a shot of new merchandise from Paul Walker Foundation.

Paul Walker, the American legendary actor, would have turned 49 this year. On this occasion Meadow, his daughter paid tribute to her late dad. She shared a flashback photo with her father on Instagram as well as a shot of new items from the Paul Walker Foundation, on Monday. She wrote in the caption, "Happy birthday to my best friend and twin soul. I love you forever and miss you every day. New @paulwalkerfdn designs out today to celebrate you! Do good, be good."

 



 

 

She also shared another childhood photo with her father on Instagram Story, seated on his shoulders. The two were dressed similarly in white shirts and blue trousers. Meadow was 15 years old when Paul died in a car accident on November 30, 2013, at the age of 40. As he was in the middle of filming Fast and Furious 7, Paul's brothers Caleb and Cody were recruited to stand in for him for the rest of the shoot before his face was digitally overlaid onto their bodies, reports PEOPLE.

The 23-year-old has always paid tribute to her father on multiple occasions. She attended the premiere of F9 in June 2021. Vin Diesel, Paul's co-star, has even mentioned the possibility of Meadow participating in the film franchise.

 



 

 

Diesel told E!'s Daily Pop, "I would not count anything out. Let me just — without giving you all of the secrets of Fast 10, let's just say nothing's ruled out." Diesel has stated that he is "very protective" of his goddaughter Meadow, who has remained close to Diesel and his family throughout the years. He told Extra TV, "She takes good care of me… She's the first person on Father's Day to wish me Happy Father's Day. To see her with my children is one of the most beautiful things." He added, "There are moments when I see her playing with Pauline and it hits me so deep ‘cause I can only imagine what my brother sees when he sees that… I feel very protective. It goes beyond the movie."

 



 

 

Meadow married Louis Thornton-Allan on a beach in the Dominican Republic in October. Her family and close friends, including Diesel and her late father's fellow Fast and Furious co-star Jordana Brewster, attended the private wedding. Diesel walked her down the aisle fulfilling his duty as the godfather.

One month after her wedding, the model found out that she had a tumor, per PEOPLE. She revealed that two years later with an Instagram photo with the caption, "2 years ago today. I've come a very long way. Bye bye tumor. Blessed & grateful."
