There is no doubt that Bindi Irwin is incredibly proud of her father, Steve Irwin.
As she dances her way to the top of the Dancing With The Stars competition, Bindi always finds time to remember her father, and the legacy he left behind.
On Nov. 15, Bindi posted a touching tribute to her father via Instagram. In honor of “Steve Irwin Day,” Bindi shared a photo of her father, “The Crocodile Hunter,” at his happiest: with a huge smile and a crocodile!
The greatest Dad on Earth. November 15. Steve Irwin Day. Remembering everything Dad worked so hard to achieve and continuing his legacy. We miss you so much and are extremely proud to be carrying on in your footsteps. Yesterday we celebrated #SteveIrwinDay in Australia. Today, let’s celebrate together on the other side of the world, today on November 15. Thank you for joining us in making a difference. Wearing our khakis and remember everything Dad did to change the world.
Beautifully said, Bindi!
Bindi’s Dancing With The Stars partner, Derek Hough, also posted a tribute to the late Steve Irwin.
Steve passed away in 2006, when Bindi was just eight-years-old. Since his passing, Bindi and her family continue to carry on his legacy.
Throughout her journey on Dancing With The Stars, Bindi has made sure to pay tribute to her father. During a routine in September, Bindi dedicated a performance of “Every Breath You Take” to him.
In an emotional interview about the dance routine, Bindi broke down and said, “It took a really long time to understand what actually happened. For the rest of my life, I’ll kind of feel like he’s going to come home.“
Watch the tribute below.
Rest in peace, Steve Irwin.
