You may remember Paul Walker from movies such as the Fast and Furious franchise and She’s All That.
As you might know, the actor kept his personal life private. However, one lady rose to fame just as Paul was gaining the spotlight, and that lady was Rebecca Soteros.
So, who exactly is Rebecca Soteros, and where is she now? Let’s find out!
Who Is Rebecca Soteros?
Rebecca Soteros used to be Paul Walker’s girlfriend, and she also happens to be the mother of his only child, Meadow Rain Walker.
Soteros had a short romance with the star before he rose to fame. From there on, she started attracting the eyes of the media and waved goodbye to her quiet life as a secondary school teacher.
Rebecca Soteros and Paul Walker’s Relationship Timeline
The couple kept the relationship low-key because they like to keep their lives private. However, some details saw the public’s eye.
The Start of a Beautiful Romance
Things started when Walker was still making his way as an actor. At the time, he was always appearing in television ads. Many of us even grew up seeing him in Kellog’s Corn Pops commercial!
Soon after they met, Rebecca gave birth to a baby girl, Meadow Rain Walker, on November 4, 1998.

Since we all know how close Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner were, Paul chose Vin Diesel as Meadow’s godfather.
Where It All Fell Down
It didn’t seem like Paul wasn’t too keen on taking his relationship with Rebeca to the next level. After all, the young actor was in the early days of his successful career.
Personally, I didn’t think it was going to last. After doing some digging, it turns out they weren’t exclusive. So, the whole relationship probably wasn’t too serious by the end.
As a result, the couple decided to call it quits, and then Rebecca took Meadow and moved to Hawaii.
The Custody Battle
Things got a little complicated when we released that Rebecca suffered from an issue with alcohol. She was arrested for DUIs, pleaded guilty, and had a three-year sentence of probation.
Unfortunately, the situation did not end there.
She soon lost her daughter when Meadow moved in with Paul. Then Paul chose his mother as Medow’s legal guardian in the event of his death. Little did he know, it was a very close possibility!
Paul’s Tragic Death
You might remember the 30th of November 2013 as the day of the fatal car accident that broke everyone’s hearts with Paul Walker’s death.
Following the accident, Rebecca lost the battle for Meadow’s custody, but she didn’t stop there.
Yet another case came to light a year later. This one actually ended well for Rebecca. The court ruled in her favor, provided that she joined a rehab program.
Where’s Rebecca Soteros and Her Daughter Now?
Soteros keeps a modest life and avoids the spotlight. However, it seems that her relationship with her daughter has become better.
As for Meadow, she headed on to a modeling career. You might be delighted to know that she’s also focused on accomplishing her father’s charitable aspirations.
Later on, she announced The Paul Walker Foundation to support marine science research, which was one of Walker’s passions. Quite the heart-touching notion!
