Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Shares Smiling Selfie With Vin Diesel's Kids

Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Shares Smiling Selfie With Vin Diesel's Kids

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow has shared an Instagram selfie alongside Vin Diesel's three kids, referring to them as 'family'.

The offspring of the two actors - both famous for the Fast and Furious franchise - smiled together as they posed for a picture, with 21-year-old Meadow tagging Vin in the picture and captioning it: "Family, forever."

Vin's three children, 12-year-old Hania (who's also known as Similce), 10-year-old Vincent and five-year-old Pauline, can be seen standing on different levels behind Meadow, completing the poignant selfie we never knew we needed.

A couple of other Fast and Furious stars even popped up in the comments, with Nathalie Emmanuel writing: "Miss you all."

Gal Gadot, who has starred in three of the series' movies, also commented with four love heart emojis.

Meadow may be slightly older than Vin's brood, but it looks like she'll always have a bond with the family thanks to the friendship her late father Paul had with his co-star.

Vin was even godfather to Paul's daughter, while Vin returned the honour by naming his third child 'Pauline' in tribute to his longtime friend, following his untimely death in 2013.

Paul tragically died when the Porsche Carrera GT he was travelling in smashed into a concrete pole and burst into flames.

The car was travelling at 80-93mph in a 45mph zone when businessman Roger Rodas, who was behind the wheel, lost control near Kelly Johnson Parkway, California.

A coroner's report ruled that Walker died from the trauma of the crash as well as being burned when the vehicle caught fire.

But while many years have passed since the fateful accident, Vin still sees his fellow actor as a 'brother', having celebrated what would have been his birthday last year with a heartfelt Instagram post that said: "Normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha.

"Instead 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."

Meadow also regularly speaks about her father on social media, having recently shared a never-seen-before video of the moment she once surprised him on his birthday, turning up in his trailer at work.

Explaining why she wanted to share the clip, Meadow wrote in the Instagram caption: "I never thought I'd share this. But it felt right. Be good. I love you. Stay safe."
