2 Fast, 2 Furious, 2… Adorable?

Appearing this morning on The Today Show, actor Vin Diesel opened up about his newborn daughter, the third child he and girlfriend Paloma Jiménez have welcomed into the world together.

He told viewers that she is named Pauline, after Diesel’s late best friend, Paul Walker.

"He was in the room [when she was born]," Diesel said of Walker. "There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there.

The star added that naming his child after the actor "felt like a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world."

Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident in November of 2013.

The Furious 7 star announced the arrival of little Pauline by posting a photo of the baby on his Facebook page Monday.

Quoting Louis Armstrong‘s "What a Wonderful World," Diesel wrote as a caption to the above image:

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.

Diesel and Jiménez (a 31-year-old model) are also parents to son Vincent Sinclair, 4½, and daughter Hania Riley, 6½.
