Actor Vin Diesel revealed on the "Today" show Monday morning that he was thinking of his late friend Paul Walker when picking a name for his new baby girl.
"I named her Pauline. ... There's no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting the umbilical cord. ... I knew he was there," Diesel told the show's hosts.
Diesel and Walker starred together in the "Fast & Furious" movie franchise.
The cast was in the middle of filming the seventh movie, "Furious 7," when Walker died in a car crash in 2013.
At a Los Angeles screening of the most recent installment, People reports that Diesel became emotional when talking about Walker, saying: "It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real. ... I lost my best friend. I lost my brother."
