Even though it has been many years since the passing of Steve Irwin, the famous Australian television personality and wildlife expert, in 2006, his family, which includes his wife Terri and his children Bindi and Robert, have kept his legacy alive and are certain to remember him as they pass every significant milestone in their lives. On the day of her 24th birthday, which was on July 23, 2022, his daughter Bindi paid respect to both her late father and the rest of their family through social media.
Steve, a wildlife enthusiast for his whole life, sprang to prominence in 1996 when he appeared on “The Crocodile Hunter” with his wife as one of the show’s hosts. His vibrant and animated presenting style drew viewers in week after week to catch up with what they had missed from the previous week’s episodes. His passionate and energetic demeanor garnered him a legion of followers. Irwin became a household figure because to the program, which also popularized his catchphrase “Crikey!” and featured him wearing his trademark khakis for the whole of the series. The program was the one that held the record for the longest-running series on the Discovery Communications network, having lasted for 11 years until 2007.
In addition, Steve gained a following in the United States as a result of his regular performances on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” A devoted environmentalist, he established the Lyn Irwin Memorial Fund, the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation, International Crocodile Rescue, and the Iron Bark Station Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility throughout his lifetime.
Steve and Terri were married in 1992, and they had their first child, Bindi, in 1998, and their second child, Robert, in 2003. But in 2006, disaster struck: while shooting an episode for “Ocean’s Deadliest” at the Great Barrier Reef, Steve was pierced in the heart by a short-tail stingray barb. Steve passed away as a result of his injuries. Fans who had seen Steve over the years push himself in dangerous circumstances to raise awareness about the natural environment were stunned by his dea th.

Robert has worn his trademark khakis and made appearances on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon,” much like his outdoor enthusiast father, Steve. Steve was Robert’s father. Robert has followed in his footsteps. He is also known for lending his well-known surname to television series, such as “Crikey! It’s The Irwins” and “Ten Deadliest Snakes,” which he co-hosts with his mother Terri and sister Bindi. Additionally, he is a passionate photographer who donates his time and talents to environmental causes and other initiatives to help generate awareness and finances. His efforts have taken him all around the globe on photographic adventures and brought him face to face with Prince Charles so they can talk about the need of protecting natural habitat.
Bindi, meanwhile, followed in her late father’s footsteps by becoming a conservationist and a television celebrity in her own right. She was the presenter of the children’s nature documentary “Bindi the Jungle Girl” when she was just nine years old. Even though Steve passed away before the program went on the air in 2007, he had already taped episodes of it before to his passing. In these episodes, he, Terri, and Bindi would get an up-close and personal look at various creatures, mostly unique and rare species. She has also been a guest on well-known programs including “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Larry King Live,” and she competed on “Dancing With the Stars” in the year 2015.
Bindi tied the knot with Chandler Powell, a former professional wakeboarder, on March 25, 2020. In honor of Bindi’s family’s deep affection for animals, the wedding ceremony for the happy couple took place in the grounds of Australia Zoo in Queensland. The Irwin family still owns the zoo; in fact, all of the Irwins live under the same roof. This is due to the fact that Bindi’s grandparents established the zoo back in the 1970s. This may come across as strange and peculiar to some people.
A few days after Bindi tied the knot, her mother expressed her regret on Twitter on the fact that her husband was unable to attend their daughter’s wedding. She noted that both Robert and Bindi’s new husband were dressed in khaki, which was Steve’s go-to color for most occasions.
On March 25, 2021, Bindi and Chandler became parents for the first time to a little girl named Grace Warrior. Since that momentous day, Bindi and Chandler have been using social media to keep their followers informed and entertained by routinely publishing photographs and videos of their thriving family life. Bindi shared photographs on her blog on July 23, 2022, which she had shot at the mountaintop party she had thrown to celebrate her 24th birthday with her husband, son, mother, and brother.
“Over the last year, I have experienced tremendous personal development, situations that were both unforeseen and hard, and most importantly, love that has beyond all of my greatest hopes. She stated in the caption that “without their realizing it, my wonderful family has given me the greatest presents this year via their remarkable deeds each and every day.”
She went on to say, “My in-laws, the blessing of having no distance standing between us and our familial relationships.” My mother bestowed upon me the gifts of tenacity, resilience, and a supportive shoulder to rely on. My brother, the gift of joy for life and the awareness that it is pointless to stress over the little things. My spouse, who has given me the gift of unwavering support and boundless generosity. The ability to see beauty in everything and to pursue pleasure (and bubbles, which are essentially the same thing to her) with an open heart, my little daughter, this is the gift I want to give you.
Terri, the mother of the birthday girl, came to Twitter to send her daughter birthday wishes and said, “24 years ago, both of our lives took a positive turn for the better.” When you were born, I recall that Steve was overcome with emotion and then proudly showed out his lovely newborn daughter to everyone in the hospital. He fell in love with you the instant he laid eyes on you, and I have no doubt that he is quite pleased with how you have turned out. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, my little Bindi Sue!
Bindi’s answer came in the form of a tweet, which said, “Mum, Thank you for your lovely comments and for making my day so memorable.” You and your father are the best parents in the whole world, and I adore you both with every fiber of my being.
