Vin Diesel Welcomes Daughter Pauline
Update: The actor has named his daughter Pauline, in honor of the late Paul Walker, he revealed Monday on Today.
“He was in the room [when she was born]. There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there,” he says. “It felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”

In the pic, Diesel is hovering over the newborn and the mother of three, who appears to still be in the delivery room bed.
The actor captioned the photo with some sweet lyrics from Louis Armstrong‘s “What a Wonderful World”: “I hear babies crying/ I watch them grow/ They’ll learn much more/ Than I’ll ever know/ And I think to myself /What a wonderful world,” he wrote.
Diesel and the 31-year-old model are also parents to son Vincent Sinclair, 4½, and daughter Hania Riley, 6½. The longtime couple, who are hush-hush about their family life, have yet to reveal the sex or baby name.
In February, PEOPLE confirmed the news that Diesel and Jiménez were expanding their family further.
