On April 30, Paul Barrett “Bear” Walker was born weighing 7 lbs., 4 oz., according to the outlet.
Just a day after the baby was born, the couple named the boy after Cody’s brother, the late actor Paul Walker. He said it was important to him to continue that name.
He added that the name “Paul Walker” has been around for four generations in their family.
“In the family, he was called ‘Little Paul’ or ‘The 4th Paul,’ although he quickly outpaced our father in height. It’s important to me to let that name go on.

A portion of proceeds from the motorsport and motorsport festival will go directly to Reach Out WorldWide, a non-profit organization founded by Paul in January 2010.
Cody called the organization “an important part of Paul that he left behind”.
“It’s important to a lot of people to see his legacy live on,” he told PEOPLE. “Since Paul’s death, ROWW has continued to support communities in disaster zones in 13 countries, with over 79 deployments and over 63,000 volunteer hours recorded.”
