She’s kept her father Paul Walker’s memory alive ever since his tragic death in 2013 at the age of 40.
And Paul’s daughter Meadow Walker made clear that her father’s Fast & Furious costar Vin Diesel was also ‘family’ in a sweet photo she posted to Instagram on Sunday.
The 22-year-old model included a black-and-white snap of herself embracing the 53-year-old action star and his 13-year-old daughter Hania.
Sticking together: Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow, 22, shared a photo on Sunday of herself hugging her dad’s Fast & Furious costar Vin Diesel, 53, and his 13-year-old daughter Hania, calling them ‘Family’
The grainy photo featured Meadow in a sheer sleeveless top as she wrapped her arms around Vin, who looked casual in a white tank top and aviator sunglasses.
He held his old friend’s daughter in one arm while hugging Hania, who wore a striped sleeveless dress, in the other.
The photo appeared to be a throwback, as Meadow’s raven tresses were longer than the short bob she has showed off recently on social media.
She expressed similar sentiments to her most recent post in June of 2020 when she shared a cute photo of herself surrounded by Hania and Vin’s other two children, Vincent, 11, and Pauline, six.

‘So proud’: Vin gushed about how proud he was of Meadow on her 21st birthday in November 2019, which elicited thanks from her
‘Family, forever,’ she captioned that photo.
Vin previously shared a sweet post for Meadow’s 21st birthday in November 2019, along with a photo of her and his youngest daughter Pauline.
‘I could say that I am so proud of the person you are becoming… but the truth is I have always been proud of you. Happy Birthday Meadow!’ he wrote. ‘I know it’s your 21st and you wanted to go big in Japan, but the family has a cake waiting for you when you get home, so hurry. Love you kid,’ he wrote, signing it ‘Uncle Vin.’
‘Thanks you so much,’ she replied. ‘I can’t wait to see you soon. And my little angels. Love you.’
In remembrance: Vin took to Instagram late last year to mark the seventh anniversary of the passing of his Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker
Gone too soon: Paul was killed in a fiery wreck on November 30, 2013, after speeding and crashing his Porsche Carrera GT into a metal pole; seen in May 2013
Late last year, Vin shared a heartfelt tribute to his late friend Paul on the seventh anniversary of his death.
Along with a black-and-white photo of the two actors, he wrote, ‘Seven years… Not a day passes…All love, Always.’
Paul, best known for performances in the horror–thriller Joy Ride and the Fast & Furious series, was killed at age 40 in a fiery wreck on November 30, 2013, after he crashed his Porsche Carrera GT into a metal pole.
The crash was attributed to older tires and his high speeds — between 80 and 93 miles per hour, according to CNN.
His film Furious 7 was still shooting at the time of his death, but the filmmakers were able to use his brothers Caleb and Cody Walker as stand-ins augmented with CGI to complete his role one last time.
Fond memories: Meadow marked the anniversary of her father’s death with an adorable photo of her as a child sleeping on the lap of her ‘forever angel’
Meadow shared her own throwback at the time with a photo of herself as a child sitting on her father’s lap, while calling him her ‘best bud.’
She called the anniversary of Paul’s death ‘a silly day to remember in sadness.’
‘Today’s a celebration of the love and happiness you brought to the world. here’s a photo of my best bud & I napping,’ she wrote.
