Bindi Irwin Honors Late Dad Steve Irwin With Sweet Birthday Message

Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her late father Steve Irwin on what would have been his 58th birthday.

The famed “Crocodile Hunter” star’s daughter shared an adorable throwback photo alongside her father with the emotional message.

“Dad, Today is your birthday,” the 21-year-old began. “I had an extra strong cup of tea just how you liked it.”

Bindi then described how she honored his memory with her mother Terri Irwin, younger brother Robert and fiancé Chandler Powell.

“I hugged Mum for you and told her how much we love her. Robert and I went on a hike through the mountains you cherished. I watched one of your documentaries with Chandler and shared stories about you,” she added. “I walked through your office in the zoo and smiled at our old family photographs.“

“Today and every day I miss you and love you beyond description. You’re always with me,” she ended the note and added the red heart emoji.

Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being attacked by a stingray while filming a documentary in Australia. He was 44.

Bindi’s mom Terri Irwin commemorated her late husband’s birthday by sharing a collage of photos and calling him her “best friend.”

“Today would’ve been Steve’s 58th birthday. While my heart aches missing him every day, I’m determined to celebrate what he loved the most,” the 54-year-old tweeted. “He was my best friend, best dad, & built the best Zoo. I love you.”

Since his passing, Irwin’s family has continued to run the Australia Zoo.

In addition, Terri, Bindi and Robert recently finished the second season of their Animal Planet series “Crikey! It’s the Irwins.”

While continuing with her conservation work, Bindi also garnered accolades by taking home the famed Mirror Ball Trophy after being crowned winner of season 21 of “Dancing with the Stars.”
