By on

Vin Diesel revealed some of the most memorable moments he had with his best friend Paul Walker. The ?Fast & Furious? actor shared touching anecdotes on Saturday night during a talk with chat show host Jonathan Ross and spoke about how Paul Walker?s memory lives on, reported by Hello! Magazine.

While talking about his children, Vin Diesel recounted an advice Paul had said to him when the actor was expecting his very first child. ?I can remember just like yesterday he said that to me, ?A lot of tough guys will tell you to wait in the hallway and not to go in the delivery room,?? he said, according to Hello! Magazine. ??But Vin, go into that delivery room, be present and cut that umbilical cord and it will be the best day of your life.? And so I did that and it was the best day of my life,? Diesel added.

A touching tribute to his best friend, Vin Diesel named his third child Pauline. ?And so six months ago when I was blessed to be in that same situation, I couldn?t help but to remember Paul and his advice. So as I?m cutting the umbilical cord, I?m thinking to myself it?s all because Paul Walker told me to go into the delivery room. So once it came time to sign the name, I started writing ?Paul? and then just added I-N-E.?

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel have started the first ?Fast & Furious? together and have been companions since they met. ?Now when I think about it I feel blessed that I?m able to carry on and talk about how wonderful a person he was and how special a person he was. He?s really the best of us, he was that selfless and he was such an important figure in my life.?
