Paul Walker’s daughter is officially married! Meadow Rain Walker, the model, and daughter of Paul Walker wed her fiancé Louis Thornton-Allan on a beach in the Dominican Republic earlier this month.
When Did Meadow Marry?
Taking to Instagram, Meadow, 22, shared a black and white video of the ceremony, which was attended by her family and close friends, including Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster, her father’s co-stars in Fast and Furious. “We’re married,” Meadow, 22, wrote in her Instagram caption alongside a video of her wedding, revealing she married Louis Thornton-Allan after a two-month engagement. The wedding was reported to have taken place “earlier this month,” although an exact date is not provided.
Several celebrities responded to the comments with their support. Comment from Ashley Benson read, “Love you sweetie.”
“Meadow!!!!!!! Crying for u!!!!!” singer Charlotte Lawrence commented.
“Congratulations!!” Abby Champion, who is a model herself, commented.
Meadow revealed on social media two months ago that she was engaged to the actor after showing off her engagement ring.
Even Vin Diesel Was Present!
During Meadow’s ceremony, Paul’s “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel accompanied the model and walked her down the aisle instead of her father, E! News claims. Jordana Brewster was also present at the wedding, which was held in the Dominican Republic. In the clip, she is seen hugging the veiled bride. During the video, Meadow’s godfather, Vin Diesel, is seen standing alongside the bride – who wears a Givenchy Haute Couture gown – while Brewster hugs her.
Meadow, Thornton-Allan, and their wedding photographer hop into a white car in the video. The new husband commented, “Forever,” on Meadow’s post shortly after she shared the news. He used a Purple Heart and globe emoji to illustrate his sentiment.
On his personal Instagram account, he shared a few shots from the wedding, simply captioning them, “I love you.” Meadow and her new husband are also seen in another Instagram post, where her new husband is wearing a traditional black suit while Meadow changed her long wedding gown into a shorter, more comfortable one.
The couple announced their engagement just months before their wedding. When the actress’s daughter was swimming in a secluded swimming pool in August, she held a sparkler in her left hand.
How Did Walker Die?
Both Walker and his friend Roger Rodas perished in Los Angeles in 2013, when a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT they were driving slammed into a pole and burst into flames. Los Angeles County officials said speed was a factor in the accident. Capt. Mike Parker stated in 2014 that the investigators determined that the fatal solo-vehicle collision was caused by a driver speeding too fast for the conditions on the road.
In November 2015, the Walker family sued Porsche for wrongful death, claiming the Porsche he was riding in was defective and lacked safety features that might have saved his life. However, the case was settled out of court, and the terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
