Paul Walker's daughter Meadow posts photo to Instagram: 'Glad to be back'


The daughter of the late Paul Walker shared a smiling Instagram photo with her over 46,000 followers on July 6. It was the first photo Meadow posted of herself since the account was created.

On Sunday, the 15-year-old uploaded a photo of herself in a bikini, sitting on a beach, and smiling at the camera. She captioned the picture: "Glad to be back."

Meadow's father died tragically on November 30 last year when the car he was riding in careened off a road in Valencia, California. The Porsche Carrera GT hit a light pole and two trees while traveling approximately 100 mph before bursting into flames. The driver of the vehicle, Roger Rodas, also died.

After the accident, multiple fake social media accounts appeared online under Meadow Walker's name. To combat the hoax accounts, Walker's team created Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts for her. Meadow does not post to the accounts often, and has so far shared just one Facebook status, three tweets, and three Instagram photos.

The teen's bikini picture was met with encouragement and compliments from the public, and received over 6,500 likes.

"You're beautiful! Your dad would be so proud of you!!" one fan wrote.

"Glad u r back at the beach where u r happy," another supporter said. "Enjoy ur summer and enjoy the ocean and the beautiful creatures in it."

Other fans commented on the resemblance between Meadow and her famous father.

"You are beautiful, your dad would be so proud of you and you sure have his looks, dimps & eyes!" one woman observed. "Loved his blue blue eyes! Take care of yourself we all love hearing from you!"

"Stay strong little one, you look a lot like your dad ♥ his memory will live on forever x" clairbella17 said.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner David Cowan decided in May that Meadow will continue to live with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, and a nanny. Her paternal grandmother had filed for guardianship.
