Bindi and Robert Irwin, the late Steve Irwin’s children, are still inspired by him today.
On his special day, Steve Irwin’s family is remembering him.
On Nov. 1st,
In a series of emotional Instagram posts on March 15, Steve Irwin’s two children paid tribute to their father.
Bindi Irwin, Steve’s 23-year-old daughter, wrote: “Your legacy will live on forever.”
“I want to love you even more.”
“November 15, Steve Irwin Day,” the caption read, alongside a photo of Steve holding Bindi while they sat in front of the ocean when she was a child.
“Today is (hashtag)SteveIrwinDay,” Steve’s 17-year-old son wrote alongside an old photo of himself and Bindi as children sitting in a tree with Steve and smiling for the camera.
“I’ve been thinking a lot about my father lately, and the impact he had on our planet, inspiring an entire generation.”
I also remember how wonderful of a father he was.
I’m able to remember the special times with dad thanks to a lifetime captured on camera and stories from my family and those who knew him best.
I still look up to him every day, and while I miss him terribly, it means the world to my family and me that every year we can have a day to honor what he stood for.”
Robert wrapped up the celebration with a special video of his late father talking about his passion for the environment, animals, and conservation in another post.
“Wanted to thank everyone who helped us celebrate Steve Irwin Day today,” he added.
“To see so many people sharing their stories and memories of how my father changed and inspired them means the world to me.”
It is a great honor for me to be able to carry on his mission.”
Steve Irwin Day is an annual international event honoring the legacy of the Crocodile Hunter, which is hosted by his wife Terri Irwin and their two children at the Australia Zoo.
Steve died in a tragic accident involving a stingray on September 4, 2006.
Bindi got emotional while speaking with her husband, Chandler Powell, about her six-month-old daughter, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, never having the chance to meet her father during the family’s Discovery(plus) special, Crikey! It’s a Baby, in April.
“It’s difficult for her to know she’ll never meet him,” she admitted.
“It’s heartbreaking because I’ll never be able to see their connection.”
“However, I can’t wait to tell beautiful Grace all of these stories about dad,” says the narrator.
