Back for another round of The Fast and The Furious franchise, Paul Walker is more than happy to rev his engine on the race track; Once the excitement is over and the engines have cooled off, it’s back to playing dolls for the single father.

In a new interview with PARADE, Paul admits that his 10-year-old daughter Meadow Rain is a complete “girly girl” through and through and loves none other than to spend her days with two of her favorite people: her dad and Barbie! “She likes to bake stuff with me and I’ve even played Barbies,” he says.

With Paul often filming on location, Meadow has no problem packing up and jet-setting off to visit her dad. “She’s seen a lot of cool places and I love to hang out with her,” the proud papa, 35, gushes. Over the moon with parenthood, Paul admits that the greatest words of wisdom on the special father-daughter bond he has formed with his child were spoken by none other than his own mom.

    “I think my mom put it best. She said, ‘Little girls soften their daddy’s hearts.”

Meadow is Paul’s daughter with former girlfriend Rebecca. The new Fast & Furious – with the original castmembers! – hits theaters today.
