Paul Walker has been gone for nearly seven years but he’s not forgotten and the “Fast & Furious” actor’s daughter Meadow is sharing a sweet throwback with her dad on his birthday. The star, who died in November 2013 after the driver of the Porsche he was in lost control and slammed into a tree, would have turned 47 years old today. Posting a heartfelt tribute to her “twin,” her dad who was taken from this Earth far too soon just months after he turned 40.
Taking to her social media on Paul Walker’s birthday eve, Meadow Walker posted an adorable throwback with her dad when she was just a baby. In the shot, the actor is seen with his signature blond locks and piercing blue eyes smiling sweetly while holding his little girl in his arms.
Meadow, who is now 21 years old, is all dolled up wearing a white sweater and checkered shirt. Looking just like her famous Daddy, Meadow Walker didn’t seem as thrilled to stop and take the picture with her pop.
