The 22-year-old model and daughter of the late Hollywood star Paul Walker revealed on Friday that she has tied the knot with her boyfriend Louis Thornton-Allan in an intimate beach wedding ceremony.

The 22-year-old shared a video of herself in a mountainside pool with her 2.7 million Instagram followers as the camera zoomed in on her engagement ring as she smiled while holding back the tears. She captioned the clip with a row of love hearts. Many friends and fans took to the comments section of the post to congratulate the pair. Meadow’s beau Louis adorably penned, “Forever and always.”
According to Vogue, the couple married in a luxurious ceremony in the Dominican Republic but their plans were affected by Covid. Meadow, 22, told the outlet, “The pandemic impacted our plans, Louis’s family wasn’t able to attend. A lot of close friends whom we consider family was also unable to attend due to travel restrictions.” Despite the restrictions, the happy pair was surrounded by well-wishers, including Fast and Furious’ Jordana Brewster who played Paul’s love interest in the franchise. Meadow and Louis married less than three months after getting engaged.
The couple’s wedding come eight years after Meadow’s father Paul passed away. For unversed, paul walker, who played Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Furious franchise, tragically died in a car crash in 2013, aged 40. Vin Diesel, who is Meadow’s godfather, is also part of the Fast and Furious franchise and starred in a number of films with her father. The actor, who was in the middle of filming the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious franchise when he died, is believed to have survived the collision but died in the wreck moments later due to the impact and resulting fire.
An autopsy revealed that Paul and business partner Roger Rodas had been traveling at more than 100mph in a 45mph zone when Rodas lost control of the car. The force of the crash was said to have been so strong that the vehicle split almost entirely in half. Meadow was just 15 when her actor dad passed away. Since his death, she has been a constant advocate of Fast and Furious and there have even been rumors that she is set to star in the uber-popular franchise in the future.
