"Dad, Today is your birthday," she began her dedication. "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." Bindi Irwin continued, "Today and every day I miss you and love you beyond description. You’re always with me. ❤️"

Steve Irwin's wife, Terri Irwin, also remembered her late husband on his birthday. Tweeting out several pictures of the star, she wrote, "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." Bindi's brother, Robert Irwin, paid tribute to their father too. Posting a black and white throwback picture of the family, he showed love by writing, “Family Always ❤️."

Even Bindi Irwin's fiancé, Chandler Powell, shared a birthday message for Steve. Promising to continue to build his legacy, Chandler wrote, “Thank you for inspiring me and the whole world to love all wildlife. You would be so proud of Bindi, Terri and Robert carrying on the amazing work you started. We will all make sure your message lives on for generations❤️🐊.” Chandler Powell popped the question to Bindi Irwin on her 21st birthday last summer. Steve Irwin died in September 2006 after being stung by a stingray in the chest while filming the documentary series "Ocean's Deadliest." The crew immediately began giving him CPR and sought help but he was already pronounced dead. Steve Irwin was only 44 years old.
