Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Shares Exciting Relationship News

Although it's been almost eight years since "Fast and Furious" actor Paul Walker tragically died in a freak car accident, his fans, friends, and family — particularly, his daughter, Meadow Walker — have carried on his legacy.

"Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill," Meadow shared on Instagram just two years after her late father's death. "I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father."

And while Meadow has been busy keeping her dad's legacy going, as well as making a name for herself in the modeling and entertainment industry, the 22-year-old philanthropist can add another title to her ever-growing resume: fiancée.

Just one month prior to her engagement and about four weeks after she confirmed her romance with Thornton-Allan (via Instagram), Walker attended the "F9" premiere with the cast of the latest installment in the long-running franchise, including her godfather, Vin Diesel, who's served as a father figure for Walker ever since her dad's death in 2013. "She counts Vin and his kids as family and will talk to them on days she's struggling, and she has their backs too," an insider shared with Us Weekly. "Paul's spirit and love definitely shines on through Meadow, and she believes he's looking down and protecting her from heaven."
