Robert, Bindi’s younger brother, also shared a photo with his father from his childhood on Instagram. “It’s Father’s Day today in Australia, and I am sending my love to those who are missing their dad today. I cherish all the good times with my dad and feel grateful to be able to keep his memory and legacy alive,” he wrote.

On Sept Steve died when he was stung by a stingray while kayaking in the Caribbean on June 4, 2006. He was 44 years old.
The Irwins have honored Steve Irwin’s legacy as a Wildlife Warrior since his death in 2006, with Bindi and Powell naming their daughter Grace Warrior when she was born merely a few months ago.

The Dancing With the Stars alum wrote on Instagram shortly after the birth of her daughter, “Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light,””Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s.”

Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my father and his legacy as the most remarkable Wildlife Warrior.
She concluded by saying, “Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. Her last name is Powell, and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad,”

Bindi has been keeping her father’s memory alive with her little girl, sharing a video last month of Grace pointing at a photo of her “Grandpa Crocodile” at the Australia Zoo. BindiIrwin shared a video with watery eyes, writing in the caption, “My grandma, Bunny, and grandpa, Crocodile with Grace, call my parents. She loves them (and koalas) dearly.”
