“Dad, Today is your birthday,” Bindi, 21, began. “I had an extra strong cup of tea just how you liked it. 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. 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,” she ended the post. “You’re always with me. ❤️”
In addition, Bindi’s mother, Terri Irwin, also paid tribute to her late husband.
The caption read:
“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. He was happiest spending time @AustraliaZoo w/ @BindiIrwin & @RobertIrwin. He was my best friend, best dad, & built the best Zoo. I love you.”
Steve Irwin died on September 4, 2006 while filming in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. He died as the result of a stingray piercing his chest with its barb.
