Bindi Irwin has great role models to look up to when it comes to what a marriage should look like.
‘The Crocodile Hunter’s’ daughter, Bindi, paid tribute to her parents, Steve & Terri Irwin, on what would have been their 29th wedding anniversary.
Bindi, who is extremely tight-knit with her mom and brother, Robert, has always made it a point to include her dad in her life since his passing.
Steve passed on September 4, 2006 after a freak accident in the ocean. While he was swimming above a sting-ray, the ray whipped its tail around and its barbed tail went through Steve’s chest multiple times.
In a 2014 interview with Australia’s “Studio 10”, Steve’s “best mate,” Justin Lyons, detailed the harrowing death of ‘The Crocodile Hunter.’
Lyons described the sting-ray attack as “It’s a jagged sharp barb and it went through his chest like a hot knife through butter.”
Now, nearly 15 years after his passing, Bindi and her family continue to remember his legacy.
On Friday, June 4, Bindi posted this adorable throwback photo of her parents holding a wild reptile.
She captioned the photo, “Soulmates. Happy Anniversary to my sweetheart parents. Your love is the stuff of miracles.”
Terri responded to Bindi’s post on Twitter writing, “Thank you
. Today marks 29 years since I married your dad. He was a lot of amazing things, but most of all he was fun. Really, truly fun!”
Bindi’s younger brother, Robert, also commemorated his parents’ anniversary posting a photo of Steve in a wheel-barrow with a busted up foot and crutches while his mom, Terri, pushed him in it. He captioned the post, “Happy anniversary, Mum and Dad. (This is my favourite photo ever 😁❤️).
Bindi once again paid tribute to her father’s legacy when welcoming her first child, a baby girl, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, on March 25th.
Bindi and her husband, Chandler Powell, married in March 2020 and announced they were expecting in August 2020.
Amazingly enough, the couple married on the same day a year prior to announcing they were expecting.
Of their daughter’s name, Bindi explained the meaning of Grace’s middle names.
“Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” Bindi wrote.
Happy 29th Anniversary Steve & Terri Irwin!
