Meadow Walker, who is the daughter of the late actor Paul Walker, recently shared a few photos on Instagram from her intimate wedding to actor Louis Thornton-Allan. Fast and Furious fans have flooded the comment section under one of those images because her father’s co-star, and longtime friend, Vin Diesel appears to be walking her down the aisle.
The pic has garnered over 18,000 comments. Mixed in between the heart emojis and “congratulations,” there’s tons of reactions to Diesel filling in for Walker on his daughter’s big day.
“I love that Vin walked you down the aisle,” one commenter wrote. “Vin walking you made me tear up and I’m a damn guy,” wrote another. “Paul is proud and happy,” another commenter wrote. One person wrote, “Awe Vin Diesel is so sweet for doing that,” while another commented “Love that Vin Diesel is like a father to you!! Love your relationship.” “Paul would have been so proud of this moment,” reads another comment. “So touching to see Vin walking the bride, his Pablo’s daughter down the aisle. Paul will be proud and happy,” another commenter wrote.
Meadow and her husband wed earlier this month in the Dominican Republic, Vogue reported. “We couldn’t have imagined it to be any more perfect and personal — and honestly it was easy and simple,” she told the outlet. “Louis and I knew exactly what we wanted from the start. It was a very intimate celebration.”
According to “The Today Show,” Diesel is Meadow’s godfather. Since her father, who famously played Brian O’Conner alongside Diesel’s Dominic Toretto character died in a car crash in 2013, the model has remained close with her father’s friends and coworkers.
When Walker died during the filming of Furious 7, Diesel flew to California immediately to comfort Meadow and the rest of Walker’s family. “I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs,” he told E! Online. “His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son?… She said yes, but you lost your other half.”
