Paul WalkerThe military couple on the receiving end of one of Paul Walker’s secret acts of generosity came forward yesterday.

Soldier Kyle Upham and his wife (then fiancee), Kristen, always suspected that the actor, who rose to fame by playing Brian O’Conner in “The Fast and the Furious,” purchased their wedding ring in a California jewelry store nearly a decade ago, according to The Daily Mail.

Kyle, who had just returned from a tour in Iraq and was about to deploy again, was shopping for an engagement ring with Kristen when she fell in love with a ring he couldn’t afford. The two, who had met Walker while in the store, left and went to lunch.

Soon after, the store asked them to return and gave them the ring, telling them that it had been paid for by an anonymous donor.

The couple is still married and plans to one day pass the ring, and its story, down to their kids.
