Cody Walker, the younger sibling of late actor Paul Walker, honored his memory nearly a decade after his passing.
Cody and his wife Felicia welcomed another son into their family and named him after the actor from Fast & Furious.
Paul died in a harrowing automobile accident on November 30, 2013, when the vehicle he was in collided at more than 100 mph and caught fire. Paul, age 40, and his associate and financial advisor Roger Rodas were discovered deceased in Los Angeles.
Cody told People Magazine that they decided on the name Paul Barrett ‘Bear’ Walker a day after their child was delivered on April 30.
According to the source, the couple did not discover the baby’s gender until after his birth, just as they did with their other two children.
Cody told the outlet, “This November will mark 10 years since we lost my brother, Paul, and I felt now was the right time.”
Cody and his wife also have a 5-year-old daughter, Remi Rogue Walker, and a 2-year-old son, Colt Knox Walker.
His older brother Caleb, 45, also honored their late brother when he welcomed their eldest son Maverick Paul Walker, who is now 5 years old, with wife Stephanie, with whom he also shares a 16-month-old daughter named Everly Grace Walker.
“My brother Caleb and I have completed our families. My brother’s name, Paul William Walker IV, dates back four generations,” he continued. “Within the family, he was known as ‘little Paul’ or ‘Paul 4’ despite rapidly surpassing our father in stature. It was essential to me that this appellation endure.
