Vin previously revealed his late co-star Paul Walker – after whom he named youngest daughter Pauline – was instrumental in encouraging him to start a family.
He told the publication: ‘He[Paul] must’ve been God-sent because he put me on the right path. He set me up. And when we did the first Fast & Furious, I was already 30 years old or something, but he was a father.
‘When we were in the cars in between takes, he would tell me, ‘Hey, Vin, it’s not a scary thing to become a father’ [and] give me all the good advice.

‘Next thing I know, I am a dad … [He] is why I named my daughter Pauline because of the credit that Paul Walker deserves in my personal life.
‘Paul was very instrumental in my segue into fatherhood. He was the one that told me to go to the hospital.
‘He’s the one that told me to cut the umbilical cord. He told me to cut the umbilical cord! [He was] the only person, in California, that knew I was about to have a child.’
