Bidding farewell to the departed ones can be harder than one imagines. ‘Fast and Furious’ star Vin Diesel recently shared a good long story at Facebook Live Saturday while crediting the deceased co-star, Paul Walker, for putting him in “the right path,” reports E!Online.
The ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ actor from California reportedly headed to show his support for Paul Walker’s charity, ‘Reach Out Worldwide,’ as he recounted significant moments spent with the actor before his death in 2013.
“He must’ve been Godsend because he put me on the right path,” the 49-year-old star shared, “He set me up.”
Speaking of the good advice given by his co-star, the ‘XXX’ star and father of three said, “When we did the first Fast & Furious, I was already 30 years old or something, but he was a father.”
“He would tell me, ‘Hey Vin, it’s not a scary thing to become a father’ [and] give me all the good advice,” he continued, “Next thing you know, I am a dad, which is why I named my daughter Pauline because of the credit that Paul Walker deserves in my personal life.”
“Paul was very, very instrumental in mysegue into fatherhood. He was the one that told me to go to the hospital. He’s the one that told me to cut the umbilical cord. He told me to cut the umbilical cord,” he shared while hanging out with Paul Walker’s father.
