So much love!

Vin Diesel took to social media Monday to post a sweet photo of his 5-month-old daughter Pauline.

The Instagram photo was captioned, “All love…” shows the little one kissing her daddy’s forehead.

The Furious 7 star, 48, welcomed his third child with girlfriend Paloma Jimenez in March. The couple are also parents to son Vincent Sinclair and daughter Hania Riley.

As decided to name his youngest child Pauline as a tribute to close friend and colleague Paul Walker, who died in a December 2013 car crash.

“He was in the room [when she was born],” Diesel said on the Today show in March. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there. It felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”

Though Diesel and Jimenez are usually very private about their family life, there are just some things worth sharing!

All love…

“There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord.” So he wasn’t thinking about his partner, who just went through childbirth, or the precious baby girl whose cord he was cutting? Sorry, but that comment just rubs me the wrong way.

That being said, this picture is too adorable for words!

@Anonymous – Literally no one said anything wrong about this picture/post before you did. Do you get some sick joy out of digging up for something ridiculous to point out?

I love that his head is the same size as her torso. It never ceases to amaze me how little babies and small children can appear in proximity to even regular sized adults, let alone muscular dudes like Diesel (who is not tall, but still pretty broad). There is a lot of love in that picture; she clearly ADORES her daddy.

@Anonymous: Yes, OMG, it’s so awful he was thinking of his best friend with whom he’d been anticipating the birth of his third child. His best friend who’d been such a good “uncle” to his older children. The best friend who’d died so unexpectedly, in proximity to the little girl’s birth. The best friend whose name he was giving his little girl. Yeah, just so terrible to get caught up in the cycle of life and death, to mourn a beloved’s death while welcoming a life. AWFUL that he spared any time whatsoever to consider this.

Notice that he said he thought of Paul while cutting the umbilical cord, and says literally nothing else about the likely hours he’d spent with his girlfriend prior to or after he cut the cord. Do you think he might’ve been thinking of her all that other time? Gee, I do wonder…
