Rebecca Soteros is an American philanthropist and former teacher, best known for giving birth to Meadow Rain Walker – actor Paul Walker’s sole child from his previous relationship. They met in California in 1998 where they started romantic relations that resulted in pregnancy; giving birth in November of that year was ultimately rejected and soon afterward they parted ways due to Walker refusing to marry Soteros; moving with their daughter to Hawaii she continued her teaching career; however, her alcoholism made life more challenging as Meadow eventually reverted home at 13.

Cheryl Walker filed a court case against Rebecca after Paul Walker passed away, alleging she could no longer take care of Meadow due to Rebecca’s alcohol problems and asking the judge for permission for her daughter to attend a rehabilitation program; ultimately the court granted this request and Meadow was returned to her father.
Soteros has since participated in multiple charity events, working closely with the Paul Walker Foundation to assist children who require assistance and advocating for the teen driver safety cause.
Soteros was born into a small family in 1974. She attended Village Christian School in California for her undergraduate education before pursuing a master’s in education from the University of Southern California.
