‘Happy Birthday, I Love You’: Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Tribute to Her Father on What Would Have Been His 41st Birthday Will Move You To Tears

She had just moved in with her father when he was tragically killed in a car accident.
And on Friday, Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Rain took to Instagram to remember her late father on what would have been his 41st birthday. The 15-year-old posted a cute snap of Paul holding her in his arms when she was a toddler, with the simple message: ‘Happy birthday, I love you.’

They gazed adoringly at one another in the photo. Meadow looked cute in a light blue pinafore covered in blue and khaki flowers over a dark blue T-shirt while the Fast & Furious actor wore a dark blue sweatshirt.
Little Meadow obviously got her curly blond tresses from her dad, although she grew up to be a beautiful brunette.

Paul died November 30 in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, California, when a joyride in a $500,000 Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas went wrong. The car spun out of control crashing into a post before bursting into flames, killing both men.
The star was there for a car show to benefit the Philippines typhoon relief effort.

Shortly before her father’s death, Meadow had moved from Hawaii — where she lived with her mother Rebecca Soteros — to be with Paul in Los Angeles.


And two weeks before the accident, the star opened up to Us Weekly about his teen daughter, saying: ‘I’m glad I had her at 25 because at 40 and 15, we’re matching up sweet. It’s just working. It’s perfect.’

The late actor’s mother, Cheryl Ann Walker, is now Meadow’s legal guardian. Her granddaughter is the sole inheritor of Paul’s $25 million estate .

Paul was also remembered on his birthday by his Fast & Furious co-stars Jordana Brewster and Ludacris.

Jordana took to WhoSay to post a photo of a sunset with the message, ‘#HappyBirthdayPW #ROWW Always in our hearts.’


ROWW – Reach Out WorldWide – is the charity Paul founded in 2010 that provides support to survivors of natural disasters. It hoped to raise $1 million on Paul’s birthday by encouraging fans to post pictures of sunsets on social media and make a donation, as the actress did.

Ludacris shared a picture of Paul on a humanitarian trip, with the caption, ‘Happy Bday to an Angel today @paulwalker.’

Paul died in the middle of filming Fast & Furious 7 and there was some doubt whether the movie would be finished until his brothers, Caleb and Cody, agreed to fill in for him. The film is due out April 3 in the U.s. and U.K.
Meanwhile, his 23-year-old girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard Gosnel, has mostly kept out of the public eye since Paul’s death. The couple began dating when Jasmine was just 16 and Paul was 33.
