On November 30, 2013, actor Paul Walker died in a car accident. His children were left to be brought up by their mother, Rebecca Soteros.
On Sunday, the late actor’s daughter, Meadow Walker celebrated her 20th birthday. To honor the special day, the young model took to Instagram with an emotional image.
On her Instagram Stories, Meadow Walker posted an image of someone holding a slice of chocolate cake. The cake also featured a 'two' and a 'zero' candle in gold and pink.
Some reports said the person in the photo was Meadow, however, it isn’t clear. The young models' father passed away 5 years ago.

The documentary was released this August. Meadow’s brother, Cody, 30, shared that their father had been very “proud” of the model and loved being a father.
The actor passed away on the day he’d taken Meadow out for a father-daughter breakfast date. The pair had also planned to decorate their Christmas tree that same evening.
However, while making plans with his family he realized that he had an event. After leaving a fundraiser for his charity Reach Out Worldwide, Paul went for a ride in a red Porsche Carrera GT.
The car was driven by his friend Roger Rodas. It crashed, exploded, and burst into flames killing Rodas and Paul who was 40 years old at the time.
Two years after the tragedy, Meadow launched the Paul Walker Foundation in his name.
The model explained at the time why she started the foundation:
“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.”
In 2017, she reached a settlement against Porsche in a wrongful death suit.
