On Saturday, Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow paid tribute to her late father on what would have been his 42nd birthday.

The 16-year-old shared a sweet throwback photo of her as a toddler smiling alongside her father on Instagram. From the photo, it’s clear Meadow inherited her dad’s piercing blue eyes.

In addition to the photo, Meadow made a very special announcement in her caption. To honour her late father, she revealed that she would be launching the Paul Walker Foundation.

“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions,” she wrote. “His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill.”

“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 #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood.”

According to the foundation’s Facebook page, the organization will help “ocean leaders of tomorrow become beacons in the fight to protect our oceans, wildlife, and ourselves.”

While Walker was known for starring in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, his true passion was the ocean. In fact, the late actor, who tragically passed away in 2013, studied marine biology and was known to spend most of his time by the water.
