Diesel announced the birth of his daughter on Facebook on March 16. This is his third child with his longtime girlfriend, Paloma Jimenez.

Diesel and Walker starred together in the "Fast & Furious" movie franchise. The cast was in the middle of filming the seventh movie, "Furious 7," when Walker died in a car crash in 2013.

At a Los Angeles screening of the most recent installment, Diesel became emotional when talking about Walker, saying: "It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real. ... I lost my best friend. I lost my brother."
