Steve Irwin died on September 4, 2006, at the age of 44 after being pierced by a stingray while filming a documentary.
The day before Father’s Day, Bindi wrote a very touching post dedicated to her father and shared her old photo with him.
@bindisueirwin: “This sweetheart has been watching her ‘Grandpa Crocodile’ on the projector at our camp here on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. She lights up when she sees him on screen. I wish with all my heart that Dad could hug my beautiful girl. It’s been 15 years since he passed away. I hold on to the thought that he’s her guardian angel now, watching over the most special part of my life, Grace Warrior.”
Grace’s father, Chandler Powell, also shared a photo with his daughter on Father’s Day, writing:
@chandlerpowell: “Being Grace’s dad is the greatest gift of all Love my girl!”
Bindi and Chandler raise their little daughter by engaging her in adventures and each time enjoying her new successes. Most recently, they were at Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, Bindi immediately shared this experience on socials:
@bindisueirwin: “Flying home from the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. Beyond proud of our girl. She was happy and smiling the entire time and enjoyed all the snuggles. Tip for parents: The soother (pacifier) really helped her ears on takeoff and landing. Also, thank you @russellcrowe for the fantastic masks!”
