Meadow Rain Walker, the only child of late actor Paul Walker, is engaged to be married…
The 22-year-old model announced the happy news via her Instagram account where she showed off a dainty diamond ring.
The young brunette accepted actor and model boyfriend Louis Thornton Allan’s proposal, with whom she went Instagram official last month.
The proposal reportedly took place during a loved-up getaway for the couple as seen in the post.
Meadow — who is the daughter of Paul Walker and his ex-partner Rebecca Soteros — was inundated with celebratory wishes from her followers, many of whom remembered the late Fast & The Furious star who died seven years ago.
“Congratulations.. your dad would’ve been so proud of you”, and “So happy for you, I know your dad would be to” were some of the messages left in the comment section.
Meadow was just 15 years old when her father died in a tragic car crash in California in 2013. Paul was a passenger in a Porsche that smashed into a tree. The 40-year-old star died on impact.
Following Paul’s death, Meadow inherited his reported $20 million (R296 million) fortune and later set up The Paul Walker Foundation in his honour.
Recently, Meadow took to her Instagram account to pay tribute to Paul Walker’s first stint in the Fast & Furious franchise, 20 years ago.
She captioned the black-and-white image: “20 years… I was 2 years old when the journey began. Blessed to have my fast family by my side”.
Prior to that she posted a montage of unseen pictures of Paul and herself as a young girl.
“Miss you,” she wrote.
Vin, who starred alongside Paul Walker in the Fast franchise, remembered his close friend prior to the release of F9: The Fast Saga, which was released worldwide in June.
He posted a picture of the pair with the caption: “On my way to the premiere… you will be there in spirit”.
Weeks earlier, he posted another pic of his best friend with the caption: “Eternal brotherhood is a blessing beyond words. Hope to make you proud… All love, Always.”
Vin has also remained close with Meadow, whom he calls his “family”. The pair often share pictures of each other on their respective social media and will most likely celebrate Meadow’s happy news together too.
