Paul Walker and Vin Diesel were clearly much more than just costars. The action stars each appeared in six of The Fast and the Furious films, and Diesel has been very vocal about his sense of loss following Walker's 2013 death in a car crash.

Diesel has paid tribute to his friend in the past, but none have been as serious as this most recent one. On Today, the actor revealed to Natalie Morales that his infant daughter was named after the late Walker. Her name? Pauline.

"There's no other person that I'm thinking about as I'm cutting this umbilical cord," he told Morales in this morning's interview. "I knew he was there and I felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my memory, a part of my world."  

Guys, it's raining cats and dogs...from our eyes. We're sure Walker — who appears in the upcoming Furious 7 — would be touched. Welcome to the world, baby girl Pauline.
