She’s back — and she’s truly more stunning than ever.
Meadow Walker, the late Paul Walker’s 18-year-old daughter, returned to social media earlier this week after a lengthy hiatus. She made her comeback with a stunning selfie — the first photo she’s posted in nearly a year.
The teen first appeared in the spotlight following the tragic November 2013 death of her father, which occurred following a horrific car crash at a charity event. She began making public appearances to honor her father’s legacy as not only her dad, but also an environmentalist, and continued his work by starting The Paul Walker Foundation.
“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 good will,” she wrote on a childhood photo. “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 Paul Walker Foundation on his birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my father.”

On their website, The Paul Walker Foundation describes their mission as a way to “serve as an enduring light of Paul’s unique spirit, far reaching goals, and spontaneous goodwill.”
“Many of his traits have been passed onto his daughter Meadow,” they write. “Meadow is excited to be carrying on his legacy. One of the key ways she plans to meet this challenge is by helping ocean leaders of tomorrow become beacons in the fight to protect our oceans, wildlife, and ourselves.”
Meadow was the only child of the Fast and Furious stud, who shared the gorgeous model with a short-term fling, whom he dated in his mid-20s. In the months before his death, Meadow was living with her father full-time — something he raved about at the time.
“My heart was desperate for so many years with the situation with my daughter…. My daughter lives with me full-time now and she’s the best partner I’ve ever had. It’s so nuts. I’ve never had anything like this in my life,” he gushed shortly before his death.
