Like most celebrity girlfriends and wives, our cynosure character today gained fame for being an ex-girlfriend of a well-celebrated film star, and she is also the mother of his daughter. Rebecca Soteros is famous for being the ex-girlfriend of Paul Walker and the mother of the late actor’s child.
Rebecca Soteros Biography
She is an American high school teacher who was born in 1974, in California. She attended Village Christian School in California, the same school Paul Walker attended. During their time at the private Christian school, the pair were never acquainted. She graduated from the school in 1992 and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in education. She started her teaching career shortly after she graduated from college.
Rebecca began to get media’s attention when she and Paul Walker started dating in their early 20’s. Earlier in 1998, Rebecca became pregnant for Walker. She then urged him to marry her but Walker made it clear that his relationship with her was purely causal and not one that involved love, even though Rebecca felt the other way. Walker also stated that at that time, he was barely ready to get married. It broke Rebecca’s heart that Walker was not considering getting married to her despite her being pregnant with his child, and it served as one of the factors that led to their eventual breakup shortly after she put to bed.
Another factor that led to their separation was that Paul Walker was sleeping with one of Rebecca’s friends. After the pair broke up, Walker went on to date two of Rebecca’s friends, Aubrianna Atwell and Jasmine Pilchard Gosnell. But neither Walker nor Rebecca revealed which of Rebecca’s friends Walker was sleeping with as at when the pair were still together. Gosnell was Walker’s girlfriend prior to his death, and it was Gosnell who broke the news of Walker’s death to Rebecca.
Rebecca Soteros Husband
She is not married and does not have a record of ever being married. Rebecca Soteros gave a shot at marriage when she was with Paul Walker but the late actor made it clear to her that he was not interested in getting married even when she was pregnant with his child at the time they were dating.
Rebecca Soteros is also known as Rebecca McBrain and she has been mistaken for the wife of Iron Maiden’s Drummer, NickoMcBrain’s wife who answers the same name as her, Rebecca McBrain. We can confirm that both ladies are not the same, as NickoMcBrain’s wife is not the mother of Paul Walker’s daughter.
Her personal life is not as public as her ex-lover’s life was and it is difficult to verify if she is currently dating anyone, as there is no public record of her dating life ever since she and Walker separated. The only person we can confirm she dated was Paul Walker.
Her ex-boyfriend, Paul Walker lived between September 12, 1973, to November 30, 2013. Walker is best known for his role in The Fast and the Furious franchise, where he was cast as BrianO’Conner.

Rebecca Soteros has a daughter with whom she shared with Paul Walker. Their daughter, Meadow Rain Walker was born on November 4, 1998, in Northern California, California. She lived most of her childhood years in Hawaii with her mother after Rebecca gained custody over Meadow at the expense of Walker. Her godfather is Vin Diesel, with whom her dad co-starred in the street racing action film.
